The A3 Advantage

With 40 years of research backing up the effects of WBV, there is no doubt that it works. It has been used for years in Russia to train Olympic level athletes as well as the cosmonauts in their space program.

For years the only vibration equipment available were commercial machines that were big and very powerful and were used primarily in gyms. Great for 250 lbs athletes that worked out on the units with heavy weights, yet not very applicable to the average person or even patients.These big units also needed to be sturdy enough to accommodate 100 or more  individual users a day, day in and out. Often smaller people experienced dizziness and/or nausea, pain and discomfort. Many lighter users just felt overwhelmed by the force of the vibration.

The cost of the larger units were between $10,000 and $15,000. Then several small units came on the market for around $300-$400. The challenge here was that most of these were just not powerful enough to do the job of getting the users whole body weight moving.
 
As a doctor, I promote the concept of a healthy lifestyle. My basic philosophy is that Diet, Cardio-vascular Health, Strength, Flexibility and even Rest are the five most important components of such a lifestyle.
 
Most people already know that they should be working out.
But for many, the task is simply overwhelming. Their lives are already too busy. Taking an hour just to do a workout is difficult for many to manage. On top of that, many gyms can be too intimidating for most people.
 
Having worked with many athletes and WBV in the past, I wanted to make the benefits of WBV technology available and accessible to the end consumer at a reasonable price. The challenge was to develop a WBV units that were strong enough to accelerate up to 300 lbs weight and to be utilized by a number of users every day, yet have a small enough footprint to fit into a private setting of a club or home. The vibration units I wanted also needed to be quiet, visually pleasing, easy to operate, safe for every family member and needed to be affordable.
 
Having a WBV unit available in a doctor's office, in a locker room or even the privacy of home provides easy access to exercise and consequently better compliance. With the arrival of A3 WBV, more people can start to exercise and embark on the path to a better life. Our directional vibration technology ensures the highest results while making the vibration very comfortable and pleasant! The A3 WBV units offer a safe, effective, yet affordable way to address the strength and flexibility component of a healthy lifestyle and exercise routine.
 
The A3 WBV units have variable time( 30sec-10 minutes) and vibration (20Hz-50Hz) settings. The keyboard is simple, easy to operate and color-coded. Working out with the WBV offers an affordable way for all family members to address their strength and flexibility needs while saving time.
 
The poster that comes with the unit has various protocols available:
    • Beginner
    • Intermediate
    • Advanced
    • Stretch
    • Balance exercise protocols available!
 
Research on cardiovascular exercise has shown, that short bursts exercise routines effectively improves our heart health! When exercising on the A3 WBV unit in the advanced settings, many users are experiencing an increased heart rate and they start perspiring quickly. Further research needs to be done in that arena, but initial signs are very promising.
 
The vertical vibration of the A3 WBV unit  was originally designed in Germany.  Production is now handled in Taiwan using steel in all weight-bearing structures for stability. The motor has been tested for 20,000 hours and carries a lifetime warranty.
 
Recap:
A3 WBV is a fast, effective, safe, yet affordable vibration. It has a small footprint and is appealingly designed for doctors office or home use. A3 WBV units have multiple exercise protocols included for strength, balance and flexibility.
