What You Should Know
The Sunny Health and Fitness Bio Shaker is a 50-pound machine that uses vibrations to improve circulation. Consumer response to the machine is limited, but buyers are clear about one important factor – this machine will not increase weight loss. According to the official website for Sunny Health and Fitness, the machine is portable, but we find it difficult to imagine toting around a 50-pound machine. While there are health benefits of vibration, none are associated with increase weight loss, increased metabolism or decreased hunger. These are the top three concerns for the average dieter.
The Bio Shaker retails for $150 to $250, depending on the retailer. The official website does not appear to sell the product, but it does provide a product description.
List of Ingredients
Vibration machine by Sunny Health and Fitness.
According to the product description for the Bio Shaker, the vibration machine increases circulation and movement of joints. The company also claims the machine will improve fitness levels, though we are not sold on this claim. Firm, toned muscles are not likely to result from resting feet on a vibrating platform.
The machine spans measures 25 inches by 20 inches and holds up to 250 pounds. The user can rest feet on the platform in a seated position, or stand on the platform for total body vibration. There is no frame sold with the Bio Shaker, so the user should position the platform next to a counter top or desk for support if balance is a problem.
The machine comes with variable settings and a remote control, but there is no information on how to use the platform in the official description. We assume the company sends a user’s guide with the order, but that is not mentioned.
We found one consumer complaint that claimed the Bio Shaker caused a serious ligament injury. While the complaint is not substantiated, users should be cautious if they have a history of joint or back problems.
