MS and the Hypervibe G10 Mini
My review comes on the heels of my long-time friend, Brian, whose rehab from total-knee replacement (TKR) introduced me to the Hypervibe. I will be 68 next month (May 2019) and spent 31 years as a 9-1-1 first responder. I have been a martial arts instructor for almost 50 years and I own a large school, teaching a variety of martial arts to students 4-80 years of age. In 1996, a car hit me head-on while I was riding my Harley Davidson motorcycle. I went through 11 operations for multiple broken bones, dislocations, torn ligaments, a collapsed lu...ng and I was off work for one year. As a heavy martial arts competitor, I did a lot of my own rehab and was back competing in two years. In 2001, at age 50, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and was determined to get past it as well. My symptoms forced me to retire in 2007 although I was still very active and I've had two more knee operations since then. In 2017, Brian told me about his success with the Hypervibe and I was able to get a demo model to try for a month. After one month, I purchased a unit and within two months, I found the Hypervibe was able to reduce the spasticity in my legs and arms and lessen the tingling and numbness in my feet and hands. This also reduced the pain my body experienced and reduced the inflammation in my joints. My quality of life improved slowly, but I still have to fight the effects of the disease each morning. In February, 2018, I had a heart attack and required triple by-pass surgery and the insertiion of a man-made filter in my heart, all due to a congenital family condition. Since then, after doing my own rehab once more, I have been able to return to what I do. During this rehab, the Hypervibe was essential to reducing the swelling in my one leg (where they took the donor veins), increasing blood flow and reducing the pain. I work out one hour each day, doing over 100 kicks, over 80 punches and assorted techniques. Like Brian, I have two small benches which allow me to sit and rest my quads, knees or calves on the Hypervibe when I am not doing the full weight exercises. I recommend the Hypervibe to anyone who suffers from MS or Parkinson's, or any other auto-immune disease. The proof, for me, is in my ability to do what I do, despite the wellness issues I have faced and I fully believe the Hypervibe has played a very important role in helping me regain that ability.
Purchased in March 2017.
The best WBV machine on the market
I bought this machine after spending a lot of time researching the benefits of WBV and what you need to know when considering buying one. I can honestly say Hypervibe is one of the best WBV machines giving you the G force required to really get results! This company provides workouts, programs and support all of which are FREE and comes with the purchase. I have had excellent customer support and know that this Australian company really want to make a difference. Brie has been so helpful. I love the product and how it has helped me so far and its only been 5 weeks!
- Verified purchase
Soooo Excited for the future !!
Easy setup, and great customer support. After the third day my unit would not come on (due to someone turning off the switch in the back of the machine) Customer support immediately started to send a tech to solve my problem. I opted to troubleshoot first and discovered the issue. I got some pain relief from my neuropathy after the first use!!! Excited to see what happens on my new journey with Hypervibe!
Don't agree with the bad review above..
I would have to disagree with that this company is no care.
I have had nothing but help from these people, they are rushed off their feet yet still try to do their best to help.. Brie has spent ages on the phone helping me to get the best that I can afford.. and then some, I did not get the G10 but I could not let this other review go without saying my bit.. I got the G 14 second hand and they were still prepared to help, now beat that eh...
Total Knee Replacments Hypervibe rehabilitation
A lifetime of maintaining a high fitness level as a 911 responder took its toll on my knees requiring TKR for both. My right knee was replaced 15/2016. The left was done July 20/2016. My knees were replaced with Stryker Scorpio NGR implants.
My primary goal was to be pain free during everyday activities. My secondary goal was to continue with a fitness program as well as mountain biking and ice hockey. I participated in these activities right up to a week before the surgery relying on prescription level anti- inflammatories to do so.
This company is all care and no responsibility. Customer Service is very poor.
This company basically takes your money and runs. I bought the Hypervibe G10 mini (which is NOT portable and weighs a hefty 24kg, the 'mini' in the title is very misleading).
Hypervibe sent me a defective machine. There was no display panel, it only vibrated at the one speed on which it was impossible to even stand on. It shook my furniture and floors, it was dangerous. I have been chasing my $995 since it was delivered on the 24th of December 2015, and have spent a lot of my time calling and emailing back and forth. Customer Service is extre...
