Just what I needed
I have restricted right hip movement and pain. Unable to exercise I thought I'd give this a go.
I have found it to help a lot. My movement is better and pain is reduced.
It is very easy to use and my balance has improved.
I don't use it on days when it feels like it is making the pain worse, but those days are now getting less.

Impressed and recommended
I suffer from labral tears in my left hip and arthritis that severely restricted movement and I was headed to a hip replacement. Quality natural joint medication reduced the inflamation and pain and the Vibrofit allowed me stretch out and exercise the hip. I am now able to walk for exercise and bowl again. Very happy and highly recommend
Perfect warm up.
I am very happy with my Vibrofit. My great passion is cycling and I bought the Vibrofit to use before and after a long ride. The "before" session warms up my leg muscles and gets me going quicker without the usual muscle pain I've been experiencing in the first 5 or 6 klm. The "after" session helps soothe my tired muscles and flush out any lactic acid build up. The good thing about it is I can use it daily and keep in tone when the weather is not good for getting out on my bike.
Extremely Impressed :)
No words can describe how a small machine like this can do wonders. I am mid 30s work full time and simply don't have the time to head to the gym. Just 10 minutes a day I'm already starting to feel and see results. If health and fitness is important to you, I personally am a PROUD owner and would HIGHLY recommend this product to my friends and family as it is a worth while investment :)
Best product I have treated myself 2.
I work just for legs at first.for circulation.then at 4 mins left I stand and do full body workout.Really pleased with results.wouldn't part with it. actually purchased one for my son and reccomemding everyone I can to get one for themselves,sp impressed
I've been to see my diatission who seems to think along the same lines as I do, when it's hard to get out and exercise due to the heat/rain then this machine comes in handy, it's great for circulation and yes you'll put on muscle mass faster than loosing fat, muscle mass weighs more so it appears that your not loosing any weight but more gaining weight, persistance I've found is the key, and even though they say that you only need to use it once a day? I use mine a half hour after each meal, plus whilst sitting and watching TV. If your like me and have a bad back that plays up from time to time, I still sit and use the machine, surely something is better than nothing!
keeping more agile
Being an RFS volunteer I need to keep fit and agile.I am 66 the average age of our brigade and over the past month I've notice more flexibility and combined with regular walking and bike riding my work on the foreground is less fatiguing.No I havnt lost weight but feel stronger and not so tired.I use it twice a day with the resistance ropes which helps with balance when doing squats another bid improvement to my mobility. Recommended.
Helpful for rehabilitation
I have had a full hip replacement and I am finding that sessions on the Vibrofit are quite beneficial to my recovery. My only complaint is that the volume of the announcement that the machine makes when you switch it on and also the beeps are way too loud! Means that I can't use it when other people are asleep. Is there a way to turn the volume down? I can't see anything.
Elderly couple pleased ...
My wife and I began using the V1 approximately three months ago. Both in our 70s. We both believe we have experienced increased core strength. And to present have enjoyed walking farther and with greater comfort.
This, although we both have been very gradual in our use of the machine. We use it for 10 minutes with more serious effort about every other day (although nothing like the full exercises seen on the website) ... and just stand on it at low speeds for 10 minutes on other days. (Recovering. Ha.)
Neither of us have reduced w...eight but feel this machine has been beneficial for our health. Certainly my legs are stronger. We are very happy with the purchase. Look forward to using it everyday ... and enjoy the challenge of increasing our usage gradually.
Questions & Answers
Is this dangerous for small children
As long as it is used under the supervision of a responsible adult, I wouldn't consider it dangerous. Though perhaps further advice should be sought from a medical professional as well. Logical, I would have thought

like Roland already mentioned, supervision is required for use of the appliance by children. We also recommend using a lower setting (gentle vibration for no longer than a few minutes) for children. We also advise checking with your General practitioner before the child uses it.
Hi. I’ve lost the vibrofit one remote control following houses renovations. Is it possible to buy a replacement. Will it work without the remote?
I don't know if replacement remotes are available where you are, but the machine should work without the remote. You will just have to use the controls manually on the machine to increase the speed and programme selections. That's all I can offer. I hope this is useful for you. Roland
