Hilarious.  Not exercise. Go take a mile walk.

I presume, I don't know for a fact, that it is similar to those balance boards which look so easy until you have to do it for two or three mins. I am in PT for post knee surgery recovery and that thing makes my entire upper leg "burn" into my hip flexors. So, I assume something happens on this board. Not everyone can run or jog or even crawl/get down on the floor for some of those pieces of workout equipment. To each their own.

@ellaphant    It reminds me of these which were declared useless.

I have one and (for me) it actually works very well! So far, so good! Smiley Happy

I used a vibration platform in PT too, it makes you use all your muscles to keep your balance...always looked forward to my time on it & felt great afterwards. Not hilarious...needed by many & they're grateful for it.

@Kachina624  LOL! As a young kid and early teen there were a couple of Vic Tanney "gyms" in our area and it was hilarious to see people using these machines in the windows!

@HeiressIn-FL    What exactly does it do for you?

It's actually not that hilarious given all the health benefits of it.  I'm glad that have affordable at home models because it's been very helpful with increasing bone mass, muscle and pain reduction for me

I was not familiar enough with the vibration platform to comment so off to Google I went.  It sure isn't a joke and has valuable applications.  Nothing like the old fashion stuff.  I would have to do a lot more research, but with a quick read it's very interesting.  Glad it is helping some of our posters.
