Contraindications & Effects of the TurboSonic
This list below of contraindications is not absolute. If one of the conditions listed below applies to you we strongly advise that you consult with your physician before using the Turbo Sonic. If you have any known heath concerns in addition to this list, consult your physician and advise them you wish to begin using a sonic vibration exercise system which vibrates at between 3-50 Hz (vibrations per second) and has an adjustable volume (height at which the plate vibrates up and down). Your body may endure between negative and positive 3 Gs of force for up to 10 minutes. This can be equivalent to 1 hour of cardio.

- Acute hernia, discopathy, spondylolysis
- Severe diabetes

Research is still being conducted on the effects of vibration on certain medical conditions. Very frail individuals and children should consult their physician and be accompanied by an adult when using the TurboSonic.
Children using the TurboSonic Children`s brains are in a developmental stage up to the age of about 12-13 years. With children, restrict use to under 3-4 min at a 50% amplitude standing. This would include the Auto mode, or in the Manual mode at low frequency. Children seem to know intuitively when enough is enough and want to get off of the machine after about 3-4 min. Some autistic or CP children have been able to sit on the machine plate for the full 10 min. session at 10 Hz, and very low amplitude, i.e. < 30%.
Disclaimer TurboSonic is not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any disease. The benefits listed herein this web site are based on independent studies which reference years of research into (WBV) whole body vibration training and exercise and those studies are independent of the TurboSonic technology and have not been evaluated by the FDA.
