Sounds like snake oil maybe, but my brother told me pw'MS' are reporting results from the use of these gizmos. Could it have anything to do with circulation? I have given my neck veins a shake with a hand-held vibrator. I just came across an ad for one, and among the things it "may" affect are circulation and nerve issues.

I had been thinking of them in terms of nerve stimulation and proprioception.

i have a powerplate, use it everyday. since my procedures i got stronger, and 'they' say 10 minutes is an hour in the gym. checkout the research they've done -

its not specifically on CCSVI obviously, but it works on strengthening muscles without too much work on your part. this particular brand, i believe was first developed by the russians for space travel and the problems caused by weightlessness and muscle deteriation. using this concept, they could stay in space way longer than the USA

no problems so far with my stent and using this machine.
specifically ck out the way it vibrates, as the power plate involves a more overall movement than just up and down or sideways like the others.

no, i'm not a salesperson, i just want you to ck this brand first...

I've heard more of the same - good for muscles. Some of the more studly dudes down at the chiro office do push-ups on them...

You are the first person who I've heard with stents who is using one. I guess it's not an issue after the liningof the blood vessel grows in.

If you are a salesman, I'll buy one just because you waited 286 posts to pimp your product! That's low pressure, man!

There was an article in the NY Times science section on Feb 15th - "Would you like a shake with that workout?" which is worth reading.

My daughter's physiotherapist recommended she try it for muscle strengthening although he does not have one.

There's several studies indicating that whole body vibration increases blood flow

There have been conflicting studies on the effects of wbv on msers. Given vibration training increases strength through neurological adaptation perhaps this isn't suprising

I definately recommend it before and after liberation. Before liberation, it's a great way to exercise muscles that you can't contract well on your own. I think it also sets you up well for a quick boost after you have the procedure. Any improved nerves are working with muscles that at least have had some exercise.

After liberation it's helps with the rehab program - it's a good whole body workout and seems to promote a faster recovery from exercise. Before my procedure, I used to manage one powerplate workout a week, sometimes two. That's all that remained of my being able to effectively use weights or a device such as a Bowflex.

Now I do a power plate vibration workout only after a fairly intensive one hour split weight/strength routine. And I do that four times a week.

Viva la liberation.
