2018/08/14 Increase muscular strength and bone density

Health Improvement Project

Human muscle power peaks between 20-30 years old, and gradual declines thereafter. After the age of 50, muscle waste occurs at the rate of 12-15% each year, and speeds up after 65 years old.
Muscle power exercise or resistance training allows muscles to boost their quality and strength, lean body weight ratio, and enhances cardiovascular health and improves glucose levels.
In particular, greater effect on skeletal muscles, joints and muscles can be seen. This not only delays the decline of body’s’ functional exercise level, but also assists elderly in preventing falls and falling-related injuries.

Isokinetic Strength Training
Skeletal muscle affects on glucose and lipid metabolic regulation, which further has effect on diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular events incidence and development. Hence, muscle power training can provide multiple chronic disease prevention and management.
Mechanical isokinetic exercises are specifically designed to target middle, old age and people requiring exercise rehabilitation to train muscle power. The size of resistance is adjusted according to the muscle power output of the user, lowering the chance of damage from muscle overload.

Vertical Vibration Training 
Whole body vertical vibration training is a special form of training in non weight lifting exercises. It is a passive movement. Studies have revealed that, mechanical vibration training exercises allow stimulation bone cell secretion, in return increasing bone density.
Osteoporosis is a common disease among the middle-old age groups. The patients are usually presented with low whole body mineral density, increased bone fragility, low bone strength and high risk of bone fracture. Severe consequences from bone fractures such as disabilities, mortalities and many more, lead to high family and social burden.
Whole body vertical vibration training stimulates secretion of mesenchymal stem cells, enhance osteoblast formation and bone neogenesis. In turn, it increases bone calcium absorption.
Mesenchymal stem cells can differentiate into bone cells, adipose cells and other tissue cells. If stimulation shifts towards bone cell growth, then adipose cells will not be produced. Vertical Vibration movements allow mesenchymal stem cells to favor bone cell differentiation to increase bone density, lowering formation of fatty cells.

"These results suggest that tiny acceleratory motions—independent of
direct loading of the matrix--can influence bone formation and bone morphology. “
