"Over the past 5–10 years, I have received hundreds of phone calls and e-mails from individuals worldwide who are seeking health care advice on the benefits of WBV for conditions ranging from motor weaknesses to osteoporosis to autism. Unfortunately most health care professionals, like myself, are faced with more questions than answers when it comes to WBV exercise. Thus, these authors have helped to fill this information void by providing the first in-depth analysis and synthesis of the growing body of research on whole body vibration. They have coupled the results of numerous published studies with their own vast experience to provide an overview of the biomechanical and physiological effects of whole body vibration, as well as training guidelines to address a variety of physical impairments and functional goals. Whether your professional background is in sport science or rehabilitation, you will find evidence-based treatment parameters for improving muscle strength and power, soft tissue flexibility, balance and postural stability, bone density, peripheral circulation, and more. In chapters 5 and 6, the authors have also provided an illustrated, stepwise guide to help the novice practitioner utilize this new exercise modality in a safe and effective manner. These authors, and the researchers whose work they have drawn from, have given us an excellent start. Like any initial work, this text is not necessarily an exhaustive review on the subject, but it does provide the scientific basis, clinical rationale, and treatment parameters needed to incorporate WBV into a physical therapy treatment plan or athletic training regimen with a reasonable assurance of success. And, hopefully, the outcomes experienced by these patients and athletes will be documented and added to the burgeoning body of knowledge that is needed for WBV to gain universal acceptance as a standard part of our clinical practice."

The book pushes no particular machine and is not after you to buy anything.
Most "home users" probably will want to skip to the "How-To" pictures and apply them. For that alone, the book is an excellent resource. I had an arm injury that doctors said would never be better. I took a chance, ordered my machine, and my arm is now painless, the range of motion is greatly improved, and I'm stronger. I continue to be interested in the latest scientific conclusions, particularly in avoiding osteoporosis and other age-related topics. In addition, the provides access to a web site with 35 exercise video clips. The exercises clips load quickly and contain demonstrations that are simple and easy to follow. Good resource!
