In recent years many businesses have already implemented, or are extremely interested in developing, programs which promote health for their employees. Due to time and space restraints Whole Body Vibration (WBV) proves most effective in achieving this goal. Taking up little more space than the employee’s body and only 10 minutes of their time, it’s a perfect fit for most any workplace. WBV is a win-win situation for both employer and employee. The primary benefits of the wellness of workers established through WBV training and therapy include:
Improving overall employee health
Regular Whole Body Vibration therapy can help prevent, and/or manage high blood pressure. Cholesterol will benefit, too. Regular WBV exercise boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or “good,” cholesterol while decreasing triglycerides. This one-two punch keeps freshly oxygenated blood circulating smoothly throughout bodily tissues and lowers the buildup of plaque in arteries. And there’s more; regular WBV exercise can help prevent type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and certain types of cancer.
Lessening preventable health care applications and lowering health care costs
Whole Body Vibration equipment may well be the best, and most cost-effective health care investment any company, business or corporation can make.
Boosting work performance and productivity
Dramatic increases in coordination, strength, flexibility and speed all help to improve workers’ performance across all fields of physical activity. Even the brain is exercised through Whole Body Vibration which improves a worker’s adaptive response to performance driven activities. Rapid adaptation to the stimulation from any challenging activity accelerates the learning curve and therefore the proficiency to perform a particular task.
Tests have shown positive correlations between absenteeism and the monotony of work. 10 minutes of WBV exercise breaks the trance-like state of a sedentary or boring working environment.
Promoting employee satisfaction, loyalty and retention
When considering its compact design and its low cost, Whole Body Vibration is the perfect corporate fitness equipment. Every employer should offer this form of training and therapy if they want to see their bottom line and employee job satisfaction increase!
Minimize incidences of Injury and Workman’s compensation claims
WBV indirectly influences the brain via the spinal cord, which helps to create different efferent/afferent pathways, enhancing balance, coordination and the overall alertness of the worker, reducing the possibility of accidents and injury. Ten minutes of simply standing on a Whole Body Vibration (WBV) machine supplies the equivalent of 60 minutes of conventional exercise. WBV exercise is so effective, only three 10‐minute sessions per week are enough to make a considerable difference in overall health, not to mention the advantage of weight loss and cellulite reduction. Whole Body Vibration exercises are ideal for loosening up your entire body, providing greater balance, strength and flexibility plus the additional benefit of relieving physical stress. Even just a few minutes of standing or positioning yourself on a Whole Body Vibration plate will supercharge and oxygenate all the cells in your body and give you extra energy to continue working. Since WBV exercise is nearly effortless and takes only 10 minutes per session, it allows for lunchtime or coffee break workouts without the concern of needing a shower or a change of clothing afterwards.
These are a few of the reasons why many corporations are including WBV equipment in corporate fitness centers, exercise rooms and even employee lounges. WBV will increase flexibility, improve mobility, promote circulation and strength, refine balance, elevate mood and enhance vitality and, in addition to all that, it is safe, fast and highly effective. Because of these attributes, WBV has become a great solution for boosting employee health and productivity.
