Indulging in a less strenuous form of exercise known as whole-body vibration could mimic the muscle and bone health benefits of regular exercise and help combat obesity and diabetes, according to a new study.

Whole-body vibration consists of a person sitting, standing or lying on a machine with a vibrating platform and could also benefit people who find it difficult to exercise.

The findings showed that when the machine vibrates, it transmits energy to the body, and muscles contract and relax multiple times during each second.

“The study shows that whole-body vibration may be just as effective as exercise at combatting some of the consequences of obesity and diabetes,” said lead author Meghan E.
