Level 1 machines are the most common type of vibration machine. They are also called oscillating machines because the platform that the user stands on will oscillate similar to a see-saw that you can see in a playground. One side of the platform will move up while the other side moves down. The speed of these types of machines is relatively low compared to triplanar style (level 2) machines and their range of motion (amplitude) is considerably higher than level 2 machines.
Level 1 machines are very good for the purposes of weight loss, improving lymphatic drainage and for balance improvement. Though they will help a little with strength training and bone densification, the low speeds and high range of motion of oscillating machines are not very effective for these types of issues.
Oscillating level 1 machines are used in weight loss centers, lipo laser facilities, fitness centers and in homes for personal use. Key features of most level 1 machines are their ease of use, low noise levels and their gentleness on knee and hip joints. Please note, however, that oscillating machines with very high G Force levels may actually cause severe damage to joints and should not be used by people with weak, damaged or artificial joints.
"I wanted to let you know that I received my Vibra Pro and have been using it daily ever since. I am simply astonished at my body's response to this machine. I have already lost several inches and can feel myself getting stronger, more flexible and best of all, having far greater energy than I've had in a very long time." - Cecile
This style of vibration machine was the first to be introduced to the scientific and sports community. Often found in commercial sports gyms, this style of vibration therapy utilizes Triplanar vibrations, in which the entire platform moves up and down, side to side and front to back at the same time. The platforms do not tip side to side like oscillating machines do.
These units typically operate at high speeds and have a short range of amplitude. This unique combination of speed and motion is great for improving blood circulation, increasing muscle strength and building bone density, but not very effective when used for weight loss efforts.
Triplanar, level 2 machines are little more expensive than oscillating machines and should be used in the basements or garages of homes as they are a little noisier than oscillating machines.
"WOW! Hard to imagine that we could ever purchase a better product, or receive the high level of service and customer care, that we have received from you. The Vibra Pro Genesis must surely be the Best machine on the market and it far exceeds our expectations. The Genesis offered the highest quality and performance of all those we had considered, PERIOD! and you were a pleasure to deal with." - Ted Grant - 70 years of age - and your Happy Customer in Green Valley, Arizona
These machines are relatively new and are sometimes referred to as dual motion machines, as they are the culmination of oscillating and triplanar motion types. Recently introduced to North America, this level 3 class of machine has become very popular since they are like both oscillating and triplanar machines mixed into one body.
These dual machines have 2 separate drive systems, 2 separate motors and users can turn on just the oscillating motion, the triplanar motion or cross-lateral motion or turn two drives at the same time to give the ultimate workout experience of weight loss, toning and strength training at the same time.
In addition to the oscillation motion, level 3 machines add a unique ‘spiral rotational’ or a unique 'cross-lateral' motion which is similar to triplanar machines but create no damaging impact to joints, so are very effective and safe for all types of users.
With their high build quality and more robust dual motor drive systems these level 3 machines are being used in commercial locations such as gyms and medical offices as well as higher end home locations. Still cheaper than buying both an oscillating machine and a triplanar machine, these machines are generally more expensive than either single drive style of machine.
