BACKGROUND • FITVIBE ACCELERATOR  • HOW FITVIBE WORKS


BACKGROUND 背景

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)
     

高引力運動源於六十年代,蘇聯科學家為了讓太空人於無重狀況下抵抗骨質疏鬆及肌肉萎縮而研發的,及後蘇奧運代表隊又應用此技術訓練奧運選手提升比賽表現。蘇聯解體後,應用此技術才被公開,現在歐美廣為運動界和醫學界採用。

高引力運動的原理是利用一台可產生垂直震動的踏台,透過高頻垂直震動產生超重力來刺激全身肌肉骨骼及各循環系統以達至治療、強身保健的效果。功用大致可分類為:

影響荷爾蒙平衡,刺激正荷爾蒙分泌,如睪酮、HGH;又抑制皮質醇
促進新陳代導、增進血液及淋巴循環
紓解肌肉張力、強化肌肉
紓解肌膜及關節黏連
促進骨質重組來預防骨質疏鬆


FITVIBE® GRAVITY ACCELERATOR

VTI have chosen to equip with FITVIBE® line of gravity accelerator. The Belgium manufacturer, GymnaUniphy, known as "The Physio Company", is a market leader in physiotherapy and rehabilitation equipments. FITVIBE®, currently is the first of vibration therapy devices to meet the Medical Device Directive of European Union and earns MDD label.

Training programs and exercises will be custom-designed according to individual's goal and ability.


本中心選用 FITVIBE® 引力提升儀。其比利時製造商 GymnaUniphy 是專門設計及生產物理治療及康復儀器的翹楚,被稱作"理療公司"。FITVIBE®的引力提升儀是同類儀器中首個符合歐洲醫療儀器標準而獲得MDD (Medical Device Directive) 標籤的。
 

本中心提供的高引力運動計劃均按照個別運動者的能力及目標而設計。
