The Soloflex Story
Soloflex revolutioned the home fitness industry with the introduction of the Soloflex Muscle Machine in 1978.
Q: Is it safe?
A: The ANSI (American National Standards Institute) has established time limits for allowable worksplace exposure to whole body vibration (WBV). The Soloflex WBV Platform safe exposure time limit is approximately 30 minutes a day at all acceleration levels (.3g’s to 1.1g’s).
Q: So what happens if I vibrate for 31 minutes a day?
A: Overdosing on WBV at these acceleration levels will make you over-tired and inattentive, just like too much exercise. We recommend ten minutes a day to start.
Q: What vibration frequency should I use?
A: The Soloflex frequency/amplitude (g-load) controller is adjustable between .3g’s and 1.1g’s (28Hz-60Hz). All settings in this range have produced similar results in controlled studies.
Q: What are the specs?
A: The Soloflex WBV Platform is 10″ X 40.” It weighs 31 pounds. The platform is a standard Soloflex weightlifting bench (15-ply wood laminate molded with urethane foam). There is no weight restriction for users. The vibration motor draws about .5 amps, the same as a 60 watt light bulb. It works in any 110 volt 3 prong outlet. Everything is American made except the frequency controller (Hong Kong).
Q: I see a lot of information regarding Hz. How do g’s convert to Hz?
A: Our platform operates with the range of 28 – 60 Hz. The g’s convert as follows:
.3 g’s = 28 Hz
.5 g’s = 30 Hz
.7 g’s = 35 Hz
.8 g’s = 45 Hz
.9 g’s = 50 Hz
1 g = 55 Hz
1.1 g’s = 60 Hz
Q: Does the Soloflex WBV Platform vibrate vertically or horizontally?
A: The Soloflex WBV Platform vibrates omni-directionally. We have found this type of gentle vibration to be most comfortable, while still operating in the optimal frequency (28-60 Hz)
