The concept of Whole Body Vibration was developed for the Russian Cosmonauts in an effort to combat muscle atrophy, bone density loss, and blood clotting during extended periods of exposure to zero gravity. Decades of research and endorsements indicate that this innovative machine produces effective results. The motion of the vibration platform causes the brain to tell the muscles to actively contract to maintain equilibrium. Scientists first discovered the positive effects that vibration technology had on strengthening muscles, increasing flexibility, and improving bone density, further research indicated that vibration therapy may provide many other benefits in a variety of areas.

For Fitness: Vibration exercises is an excellent alternative to traditional exercises with benefits including increased muscle mass, improved circulation, flexibility, range of motion, balance, and mobility.
Lose weight more effectively by increasing lean muscle mass. Studies show that increasing lean muscle mass makes the body more fuel efficient by burning more calories throughout the day, not just during a workout. The more calories the body is able to burn, the higher the potential is for dramatic weight loss.
With whole body vibration, hundreds of muscle contractions per minute create an invigorating workout designed to increase lean muscle mass and firm muscles to create an overall effect of a more toned, firm, and healthy body. Using the ZAAZ Whole Body Vibration Exercises to tone muscles and increase lymphatic drainage may help fight off cellulite while the improved circulation induced during vibration therapy may be able to tighten the skin.
The imbalance caused by the gentle rocking vibration of the TOS is designed to increase flexibility, range of motion, balance, and mobility.
For Health: Increase bone density with whole body vibration exercise as it was originally designed to do by one of the world's leading space programs. These have been worldwide scientific studies completed on whole body vibration systems that indicate high success rates in treating osteoporosis. The potential for an increase in bone mineral density while using the ZAAZ is a viable solution to prevent further bone loss and to help combat osteoporosis.
An increase in circulation and lymphatic drainage may help to cleanse toxic buildup from the body and increase oxygenation in the blood. The multiple muscle contractions per second create an increase in blood circulation and movement in the lymph system. Increased circulation, lymphatic drainage, and increased muscle strength may reduce pain and stiffness and alleviate symptoms of fibromyalgia, arthritis, and more.
Whole body vibration has been known to help facilitate natural hormones and nerve delivery substances, showing an increase in serotonin while decreasing cortisol, a hormone produced by stress. Elevated serotonin helps to create a feeling of well being, while the decrease in cortisol may reduce "belly fat" caused by STRESS.
For Therapy: Neuromuscular re-education is possible in applicable situation, such as with MS, CP, Parkinson's, or after a stroke. Elevated levels of HOG have been indicated with use of vibration therapy. These elevated levels have been shown to help the body heal and repair after injury or surgery. The ZAAZ may also help in treating athletic injuries, as well as providing a sports massage effect, due to the hormone secretion ratio that is involved with growth and recovery.
