ORTHOMETRIX, INC. has developed the VibraFlex® 450 using our internationally patented Galileo vibration technology which causes the device to function in the specific uni-directional, oscillating pattern. The VibraFlex® 450 is defining a new revolution in rehabilitation and physical therapy by mechanically stimulating your muscles at a specific frequency, typically 12-27 Hz. Targeted muscles are given 12-27 impulses per second, causing them to contract and relax by the natural, involuntary, muscle stretch reflex, 12-27 times per second. At this optimal range, a one minute therapy session will produce approximately 1,500 contract/ relax cycles.
The VibraFlex® 450 was designed to allow you to benefit from exercise without the constraints of conventional exercise (i.e. stress on joints, ligaments and tendons, numerous repetitions, etc.). Therapy sessions of only 2-3 minutes, twice a week produce measurable results. Don’t let a debilitating condition due to injury or disease stop you from enjoying your life to the fullest.
