BACKGROUND • FITVIBE ACCELERATOR • HOW FITVIBE WORKS
Hyper-Gravity Stimulation Training (HGST) was invented by Soviet Scientists in the 60s to help astronauts to combat bone density loss and muscle atrophy during prolonged stay in space. Later on, Soviet Olympic Game Team integrated HGST in their training program to help enhancing performance of their athletes. The secret use of HGST was then revealed after the fall of Iron Curtain. HGST is now widely used in both medical and sports/fitness applications in both Europe and America.
HGST applies a vibrative platform that vibrates VERTICALLY to create hyper-gravity load to stimulate entire musculo-skeletal structure and circulation systems in order to achieve therapeutic and health conditioning effect. The effect of HGST can be summarized as:
change of hormonal level - to enhance secretion of Testosterone and HGH; and suppress Cortisol
Enhance metabolism, blood and lymphatic circulation
Relieve muscle tone and strengthen muscles
Relieve myofacial and joint adhesion
Bone Remodeling: to stimulate the activity of Osteoblast (bone-making cells)
