Maybe older age groups shouldn't use it
Hi. My wife and I are fit, sporty and healthy in our early 80's. We bought ourselves a Cardiotech machine for Christmas. On the face of it the machine was doing us good. I lost 2 kg in two months or so. However, now 4 to 5 months later we both have a prolapsed rectum with consequent difficulties in going to the toilet. We suggest that the machines vigorous shaking has severed whatever held up our rectum within the body. Looking on-line the only cure is surgery! No warnings were given when we bought it or subsequently.
I've owned one for 3 years
I was a big person with severe arthritis throughout my body. By using this machine and keeping an eye on good nutrition, portion sizes etc my circulation has improved, fatty pockets are reducing and joint pain has also improved. The life back 2 is superior to other machines. It makes your whole body itch on the big settings but it improves the quality of sleep to.
Best thing I ever Bought
I would like to say the biggest thankyou too you.
I bought a life back 2 off you back in July 2016, and boy how this has changed my life…….
Not only have I gone from 82.5 Kilo’s to 65 but many other benefits I have also gained from the Life back2.
* My skin is smooth and no little bumps anymore, and no dry skin as the vibration shakes the blood beneath which has increased my circulation.
* The little spider veins behind my knees are now all but disappeared.
* I have found muscles I never knew existed.
* My arms are tones and sculpted.
* The hardest part of the body to exercise, the inside of my legs are now tones and fat free.
* I have never felt or looked better and I'm 48 years old.
Now the talk of all my friends
I bought the LifeBack2 about 4 months ago from CardioTech. I am 70 years old and I cant do a lot of simple exercises that I used to enjoy because of a bad back and foot problems. I was frustrated and felt that i wasn't getting enough daily exercise and i wanted to get rid of my aching legs. You can actually feel the blood pumping through your legs when using the LifeBack, it makes you feel invigorated and it might sound crazy but it gives you that new lease on life. I guess I had a bit of guilt before buying that I wasn't doing enough exerc...ise but now by holding a simple few positions on the machine I can feel the next day that I have worked my muscles and that's great. I no longer worry about long-term strength and mobility and my achy legs are gone! I would highly recommend this machine to young and old alike.
Great for the elderly and good for me too
After initial reluctance from my mother who was afraid that the machine might make her legs ache even more than they were, she loves it. The first night after just 5 minutes of sitting in her lounge chair with her feet on the machine and her hands on her knees, like she was told, she slept much better and the arthritic pain in her shoulder that often stopped her getting to sleep, just wasn't there. She tells me she can feel more sensation in her feet now and gets tingly legs when she uses the machine and she's just sitting and relaxing. The LifeBack 2 vibration machine has improved my mother's circulation and she is walking more freely which helps her enjoy time with her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Questions & Answers
just wondering if this machine is safe for the kids under 10 year old to use
Whilst my grandkids have been on this machine their usage needs to be strictly monitored as they tend to want to play with it and set the speed really high. Its not a toy and with all exercise equipment slow and steady does the trick. I'm not a doctor and have no medical training so a discussion with a suitably qualified medical person is always advised. This device works great for my arthritis and is great for circulation.
Hi Bass, great response by Renny and exercise on these types of machines is always best supervised if children want to use and please check with your doctor or healthcare professional to discuss suitability.
Is it possible for me to oil the machine, as it is noisy now? Am I able to dissemble the parts, to do this?
