These vibration machines contain two separate vibration motions that can be independently controlled. It is the newest of all types of vibration machines. These vibration machines are more effective and efficient because they offer the benefits of both oscillation and triplanar style vibration machines. Best for weight management, lymphatic stimulation, improved circulation and pain reduction, developing muscle strength and bone density. Sometimes may be referred to as Type 3 machines.
Oscillation (Pivotal)
mini-vp5500-wbvmini-i25-wbvmini-m2-wbvmini-tzonevt20-wbvmini-zaaz20k-wbvmini-hypervibe-wbvmini-noblerexk1



Pivotal motion machine. The movement resembles a teeter-totter. These vibration machines are generally found in weight loss centers and lipo laser facilities. Helps with improving circulation, lymphatic drainage and clearing out blockages, and also increases blood flow and weight loss. Sometimes may be referred to as Type 1 machines.
Triplanar

High speed motion machine. The motion is very fast but movement of the plate itself is subtle. The vertical displacement (movement) is shorter. These vibration machines are usually found in fitness facilities and strength training gyms and are used by professional sports teams. Designed for users primarily focusing on building muscle strength and muscle tone and especially improving their bone density. Sometimes may be referred to as Type 2 machines.
Sonic (Sound)
