"Bodyblade is unlike any other piece of exercise equipment on the
market today due to the scientific application of low level
vibration and inertia. Bodyblade rapidly changes directions at a
rhythm of 4.5 cycles per second, which translates to your body
reacting 270 times per minute to resist the forces of the blade
moving back and forth. What this means is that your body becomes
the machine and the Bodyblade becomes your exercise partner. The
harder you push and pull on the blade, the greater the
oscillation or flex in the blade, which requires greater force
output from you to neutralize the speed and movement of the
blade. You have to start, stop and change directions of your own
body while controlling your mass. This wonderful equalizer
automatically adjusts to each one of us. The same blade in the
hands of two different people will produce a workout perfectly
matched to the individual’s size, strength and muscle endurance.
Bodyblade pioneered vibration and inertia training in 1991. With
its innovative design, it was created to address the deep dynamic
stabilizers of the spine and to provide a stable platform for all
other rehabilitation, sport performance training, fitness
enhancement and personal training regimen, resulting in improved
wellness, function and muscle definition.
Bodyblade strengthens muscle groups throughout the body by
varying the positions of the body or direction of the flexing
blade. Bodyblade trains movement through muscular teams and
patterns rather than isolated single plane muscles. This is what
makes it such a valuable tool for rehabilitation, performance
sports training, fitness, functional wellness, improved balance,
and coordination. Inertia in the Bodyblade also helps the body to
become more efficient at agonist (one side of joint)/antagonist
(opposing side of joint or action) activities as it promotes a
better balance between muscle acceleration and deceleration on
both sides of the joint resulting in enhanced coordination,
flexibility, posture and efficiency of muscle function. The
unique, oscillating action makes it an ideal choice for treating
acute injury, chronic disability and post-surgical rehabilitation
in a variety of environments and task-oriented activities.
Bodyblade tends to normalize the way in which the joints
function, eliminating the potential for imbalance that can occur
with other exercise systems. It also permits a high efficiency of
motion, producing the greatest rehabilitation gains with the
least amount of effort. "
