The X-Series is the next step in Whole Body Vibration (WBV), with improved technology (motor and electronics), lower accessible platform, integrated coach and preset workout programs. The X series will provide you not only with full body fitness and a strong impact on your health and wellness but also the added benefits of better skin, better posture and a better look. It is fast and efficient and has long lasting effects. The hormonal response and high production of HGH also leads to more rapid healing of fatigued or injured cells and allows faster recovery. The stress hormone, Cortisol, is also lowered significantly, resulting in you feeling good and relaxed after a session on the DKN platform.
WBV (Whole Body Vibration)
Basically the Whole Body Vibration platform recreates the muscle stretch reflex according to the following process:
- Stimulus: a tap on tendon causes a muscle stretch reflex
- Receptor: the receptors in muscles and joints note this shift in length
- Spinal cord: they pass the information on to the spinal cord
- Brains: The response to this sensory stimulus via the spinal column is a direct contraction of the stretched muscle. The brain is not directly involved in this process.
Many studies have demonstrated that a 10-minute exercise on a WBV machine is equivalent and even better than an hour workout with conventional fitness equipment. The impact of WBV is significant in the medical field as positive results have been observed with Parkinsons disease patients and patients suffering from other degenerative diseases. For women and elderly people, studies have shown that WBV substantially slowed down the progression of osteoporosis and helped rebuild bone density.
