Introduction: With all the different whole body vibration machines now available, how do we know which ones are the best?
Hopefully if you are here you are interested in learning more about whole body vibration exercise because, according to the research, the benefits range far and wide.
So the question is, What Whole Body Vibration Machine should I choose?
Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation and bogus review sites that mislead and even outright scam potential buyers.
Our goal with the next handful of blog posts is to stick with the facts: the research done on whole body vibration, and the reviews customers have given these machines.
We will then review the four most popular pivotal, or oscillating, whole body vibration machines on each tip. How do we know these are the most popular? These are the ones we are asked to compare the Noblerex K1 to the most by far! They are: the Nitrofit, and Vibraslim Europate.
Although there are many other machines such as the Turbosonic, Powerplate, Powervibe, Proelixe, T-Zone, VibraFlex, Vibratrim, and more… We are seeing that the Noblerex, Nitrofit, and Vibraslim Europlate are by far the most researched and asked about oscillating vibration machines today.
The machine should be strong enough to fatigue the muscles and create a strength gain. It should reach 25-28 Hz because the majority of research with whole body vibration machines found that range to be a real “sweet spot” for bone density improvement and other benefits. Any more Hz than that is not necessary and is not well tested. A 2 Horsepower motor is ideal.
The machine needs to be safe enough for people to use it as a therapeutic or chiropractic device though. The motor needs to be a quality motor that will produce a vibration that is not wobbly, jolting, or rough. Also, vertical or linear vibration machines can be quite shocking to the body of an older or frail person.
The Noblerex has goes up to 28 Hz, has a 14 mm amplitude, and a 2 HP motor.
The Nitrofit goes up to 30 Hz, has a 13 mm amplitude, and a 1.5 HP motor.
The Vibraslim’s website says it goes up to 30 Hz, has a 10 mm amplitude, and it does not say the horsepower
It should also have a strong amplitude such as 14 millimeters. The amplitude is how far up and down the sides of the plate move. We will feel much more of a workout with a 14 mm amplitude compared to a 10 or 11 mm amplitude.
Make sure you will get support when needed. Everybody is different and you may need a little help AFTER you buy to insure you get the full benefit of the machine.
The MRS 2000 offers the best support and education with a 350 textbook, dedicated support specialist nationwide trainings and regular conference calls. No other company comes close to the training education and support you will receive.
This one is simple. Is the Machine easy to use?
The MRS 2000 is the easiest of the 3 machines to use AND You can leave all the attachments plugged in.
Its so easy we have several small children that can get it to work. The QRS and Bemer 3000 are more awkward and difficult to use and don’t allow for ALL three attachments to remained plugged in.
You don’t want it to be slippery!
This tip is the most important: Verifiable Case Studies, Positive Customer reviews and Testimonials. Basically, does the machine work and give real results? Ask for a comprehensive list of customer reviews and if possible try to talk to some of them.
This article will address some recent questions raised by a dubious whole body vibration review website out there on the dangers of whole body vibration machines with an AC Motor versus those with a DC Motor (we have an AC 100-120 Volt Motor). Mainly, we want to dispel the danger our machine creates in the form of EMF (Electro-Magnetic Frequencies) as well as raise some eyebrows at the credibility of this review site.
Below is the paragraph on the site we’re responding to:
WARNING!!! Beware of WBV machines that have HIGH RF AND EMF FREQUENCIES!
There are only a few machines that were found to be completely free of RF and contain Zero magnetic field around the vibrating Platform. Newer machines are manufactured using DC centrifugally vibrating motors. Some machines in the market that are build with AC motor or Sonic magnets are loaded with RF and are very rich in Magnetic Field MF. Those Magnetic Fields may deteriorate the cartilages of our feet if we stand on the vibrating platform, our hands and palms if we do push ups, our hips if we sit on it. (MANY MANUALS SAY NOT TO PUT YOUR HEAD CLOSE TO THE PLATFORM, THIS IS THE REASON). Also, the big attention and warning is that uncontrolled MF and rich RF may cause bone cancer. I am sure that you heard the warning about the magnetic fields in the cellular Phones that might cause brain cancer? Well, the magnetic fields on the some AC motor platforms are hundreds of times stronger then those of the cellular phones. Most machines are loaded with those powerful MF and RF and are exposing their customers and their trainers to a very high risk!
If you want ZERO EMF AND RF EXPOSURE, YOU MUST GET DC MOTORS.
This is such a bogus claim/ marketing spin, we’re not sure where to start but we’ll start listing it out here:
1) We have tested our machine with EMF testing device (tri-field meter) and when on, it reads no higher than the EMF coming from an iPhone or Laptop. (Pictures will be uploaded soon.) In fact – the computer (an iMac) is 4-5 times as strong! Keep in mind, we spend A LOT more than just 10 or 20 minutes a day on the phone or in front of our computer. This alone makes any EMFs coming from a whole body vibration machine a moot point when you’re looking at the benefits of whole body vibration technology. (The blow dryer had significant EMFs coming from it when on as well). Ten minutes of being on a whole body vibration machine is nothing, compared to the EMFs we’re exposed to in everyday life.
2) We’re not sure where the person behind this website is getting his information from, regarding which machines have AC and DC motors, but the machine he’s really pushing is the Hypergravity Gyminator, and on their website it says that the Hypergravity Gyminator has a 110-115 Volt AC Motor, as seen in the snapshot below. This makes us wonder if the claims on the other machines are fictitious as well. We are still looking into this and so far we’ve found two other machines that supposedly have DC motors to have AC motors.
3) Unless you have a built-in converter at the wall, Alternating Current (AC) is coming out of the wall and into the machine, and you’re still getting some EMFs. There’s no way you are getting ZERO EMFs unless the converter is at the wall and even then, anything that plugs into the wall has a 60 Hertz current, so that’s something. We have called up the machines that do in fact have DC motors and their converters are in the machine, thus making this zero EMF claim completely false.
More on this topic is on the way, but for now, we leave you with the above points. It all boils down to stupid sales techniques. Unfortunately, we see no un-biased review sites out there at the moment.

Last weekend we were in Prescott Arizona at a healthy lifestyle festival with our Noblerex K1! We had such a fun time demoing the Noblerex to visitors of all ages and fitness levels. People were on our two machines all day long and had so much fun on them. Kids were loving the machines too – we had to cap them off at 10 minutes to let the adults have a turn!
Here are some things we heard from those who had a chance to try the Noblerex out: (Some people came 1-2 times each day all three days!)
“I thought it was amazing! I thought it was kind of silly when I looked over and I saw someone doing it, and then I had to come over and try it. It was just incredible how you feel; you feel stuff moving and releasing, I could fee tension being released from my muscles and my spine. It was awesome.”
“It feels great. I’m already really glad I came here. I wish I could just take this in my car.”
“I loved it. I want one!”
“I’ll be back tomorrow.”
“My back felt better after using it yesterday!”
“I need one of these!”
