hypervibe vs genki ultraslim

Top 5 Reasons Why You Would Choose A Hypervibe over a Genki Ultraslim

1 – Greater Frequency Range

Frequency refers to the number of times per second the platform travels up and down through 1 complete cycle of movement. Research has shown that different vibration frequencies have different effects on the way forces are transmitted to the body. The Genki Ultraslim has been tested to have a maximum frequency of just 10Hz, whereas more than 90% of the 800+ studies on Whole Body Vibration research use frequency higher than this. If you want to achieve the scientific proven benefits of Whole Body Vibration, it is important the machine you purchase is capable of operating at the same settings used in the scientific research. Scientists have noted that insufficient vibration frequency could be the reason for failed outcomes.

 

Frequency Range

Genki Ultraslim 6-10Hz
Hypervibe G10 Mini 5-25Hz
Hypervibe G14 Home 5-30Hz

2- More G Force

G force refers to the intensity of the vibration, the more G force placed onto the body, the greater the body responds to that force. The Genki Ultraslim has a maximum G force of just 2g, whereas Hypervibe machines can be controlled to produce very low G force like the Genki Ultraslim, or much higher levels of 10g or higher, depending on the model.

G Force Range

Genki Ultraslim Up to 2g
Hypervibe G10 Mini Up to 10g
Hypervibe G14 Home Up to 14g

3 – Frequency Displayed

As we already discussed, frequency is an important factor in Whole Body Vibration, it is used to control different effects and benefits. For example, 6 to 8Hz is best suited for balance, 10 to 12Hz is best suited for relaxation, and 20-45Hz is best suited for training. With this being said, when you use a vibration machine it is important that you get a frequency reading from your machine so that you can target the benefits you are wanting to achieve.

The Genki Ultraslim does not give you any indication of the frequency setting on the control panel, instead the machine displays a range of speed levels from 1 to 120 that don’t really give you any idea of what frequency the machine is operating at.

4 – Clinically Supported

When a company make claims that their product is supported by scientific evidence, it would not be unreasonable to expect such evidence can be provided. There are hundreds of scientific studies showing benefits of Whole Body Vibration, dating back over 20 years, however, not none of those studies used the Genki Ultraslim.

You might think, well it doesn’t really matter what type of machine was studied, what really matters is that there is scientific proof that Whole Body Vibration works, right?

Well no, when scientists conduct a study, there are many factors they choose which can cause a study to be successful or a study to fail. In Whole Body Vibration research, such factors include, how many times per week they use the machine, what exercises will be performed on the machine, how long each exercise will be performed for, and importantly what vibration settings will be used. If the vibration levels are too low, the forces placed onto the body can be too low to cause any benefits, alternatively, studies have shown that as forces are increased, the response from the body increases. Therefore, if a machine has not been used in scientific research, it is important to make review studies to make sure that the alternative product can produce the same levels of vibration used in the research.

Genki Ultraslim = No peer reviewed studies using Genki Ultraslim, unable to produce vibration levels used in majority of the research
Hypervibe = Peer reviewed studies using Hypervibe equipment, able to produce vibration levels used in majority of the research.

5 – Bigger Warranty

At this point, you might be wondering, what good is a warranty if a product is underpowered? Well, some are interested in this, so here is how the Confidence Fitness warranty stacks up against the Hypervibe warranty.

Standard Warranty

Genki Ultraslim 6 Months
Hypervibe 2 Years Labour
5 Years Parts
10 Years Motor
