Who should use safety precautions? Most adults from the physically fit to the sedentary can use whole body vibration platforms. While the following list of medical conditions is not complete and WBV is extremely smooth and gentle, we strongly advise that you consult with your physician before using WBV if any of the listed conditions apply to you. This does not mean that if you are suffering from any of the conditions on the list that you cannot use whole body vibration. Vibration therapy has been studied and used by professional entities around the world.   In a number of cases, it is highly recommended to integrate vibration training in a treatment plan under the medical advice of a doctor, specialist, or physiotherapist. These conditions include, but are not necessarily limited to pregnancy, pulmonary embolism, acute hernia, discopathy, spondylosis, acute thrombosis, severe diabetes, known neurological conditions, migraines, epilepsy, pre-existing deep vein thrombosis, cardiovascular disease, recent infections, pacemaker and implantable cardioverter defibrillators, those undergoing cancer treatments (chemotherapy/radiation) or who have tumors, known retinal conditions, recently placed IUDs, metal pins or plates, are recently recovering from an operation or surgery such as a hip or knee replacement, have recent operative wounds, or have poor somatosensory receptor sensitivity on the plantar surfaces of their feet. If you are experiencing other symptoms, brief or long-term conditions, or are on medication, consult your physician prior to engaging in WBV use.
