Arizona Patent of the Month – August 2021

Physical therapy techniques often address injuries, pain, tightness and so on. Targeted vibration has been incorporated within these therapies for some time now, though in very limited ways. Vibration Release Techniques, LLC has designed a system to realize the full potential of vibrational therapy for use in pain and muscle tightness. 

The process involves lengthening a muscle froup while applying vibration. For instance, extending your leg out until you feel a stretch in the hamstring, and while stretching and relaxing the muscle, applying vibration therapy. In the instance of physical therapy and restricted motion, the system can use a pulley system to lengthen the muscle group for the user. So if you can no longer move your leg on your own, the pull can stretch it out for you, and allow for optimal vibration therapy. They have found that a vibration frequency between 100 Hz and 300 Hz with an amplitude of.5-7mm works best. The method uses 10-45 seconds rounds with 10-30 rounds per session. It has been discovered that these techniques can bring about dramatic and quick improvements in flexibility and range of motion, while also diminishing symptoms like pain and discomfort.
