Is this what you're talking about?
I don't go anymore since it is hard for me but it seemed to help a little - didn't hurt!
Don't know if this is an issue with stents - probably not once they are secure in place.
edit - Have not done vibration therapy since starting my procedures so I don't know what effect this would have on angio'd veins.
This was specifically in response to someone with a stent, which is why he referred to movement of the stent.drsclafani wrote:not sure, but i would not recommend it to someone who used it for a couple of weeks simply because i do not know whether the effects of vibration might enhance movement. Just to play it safeAlmostClever wrote:I also stand on a vibration plate for rehab. Might this also increase the risks mentioned?
I wasn't trying to be cute about it, I didn't realize you'd posted in this thread and that was you asking the question originally.AlmostClever wrote:OMG! I forgot I asked that! Thx CeCe!
I don't think using a vibrator plate would be a problem, assuming one is more than a few weeks post-procedure and/or never got stents.

anyone get any meaning out of that?the Cardiovascular Effects of Whole-Body Vibration Part I. Longitudinal Effects: Hydrodynamic Analysis
Z. Yue, J. MesterArticle first published online: 21 JUN 2007
For a given direction of whole-body vibration and a given piece of blood vessel, the local vibration has in general both a longitudinal (parallel) component and a lateral (perpendicular) component. The longitudinal and lateral effects are treated in Part I and Part II, respectively. In Part I, detailed hydrodynamic analysis shows that the maximal shear stress at the wall of the vessel is considerably increased by the longitudinal component of vibration for big vessels. For example, for high frequency range 40–50 Hz, the maximal shear stress at the wall of coronary artery could increase by 35–49% even if the local longitudinal amplitude is as small as 50 μm. Potential benefits and risks associated with this effect are discussed. In Part II, statistical analysis is carried out based on the results of specially designed experiments, where accelerations at different body locations and some cardiovascular parameters were measured simultaneously. Some changes of body mode were arranged during the vibration experiments in a way that the transmissibility of vibration increased considerably during each change of body mode. Statistical analysis of the results suggests with high level of confidence (>97%) that arterioles were dilated during such changes of body mode. Potential benefits associated with this effect are discussed.
