Vibration technology has been used in many recent years on the physical fitness circuit with documented gains in the areas of flexibility, range of motion, strength and balance.

Vibration Therapy for Autism

Vibration has historically used in the treatment of certain sensory processing deficits, and we have seen great results when using the vibrating machine with our sensory kiddos. In fact, preliminary research shows that whole body vibration may decrease the number of stereotypical behaviors exhibited in children with autism. If your therapist deems your child will benefit* from WBV, he/she will be sure to add it your child’s therapeutic regime.
*Whole body vibration and the vibration machine has the potential to benefit many of our kids at NAPA, however as with any type of therapeutic intervention, not everyone is appropriate for the treatment.  Ask you therapist if your child would benefit from whole body vibration.
