Vibration Therapy: The Science Behind the Myostorm Meteor Mini Ball 

The Meteor is a scientifically backed product that is designed to provide relief from soreness and to prevent injury and re-injury in affected areas such as the plantar fascia. The Meteor uses heat levels and vibration levels shown by research to be the most effective. 

How is the Meteor’s vibration special?

The Frequencies that the Meteor vibrates at are between 30 and 90Hz. The levels of vibration, particularly the lower settings, have been found to be in the optimal ranges for pain relief and muscular recovery:

The research backed vibration levels of the Meteor MIni Ball have many benefits including pain relief, muscle relaxation, improved recovery, and decreased soreness. See these scientific papers and articles:

Vibration causes all the little somatosensory receptors within the skin and muscle to be activated, which in turn affects the neurological system helping it to relax (Dr. Brent Feeland).  The Meteor will provide you with a localized vibration that will cause your muscles to contract and relax. With just a 30 second application of vibration, muscle stiffness can be reduced by 50%.  World class athletes such as Olympian runners Jared Ward and Drew Windle, and body builder Leon McCall have endorsed the product and see the potential for The Meteor to completely take over the recovery market.


Vibration as a means of muscle recovery is not something that is new.  The practice of vibration began over 50 years ago and has since been simplified after further research and developments.  Research has shown that vibration provides many benefits for muscle recovery. Some benefits include increased flexibility and strength, as well as reduced soreness after a workout.  It has also been found that passive vibration reduces pain in 70% of patients suffering from both acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain (Lundeberg, 1984).

 Vibration is typically measured by its frequency in units called Hertz (Hz.).  The ideal frequency for muscle recovery would be to expose the muscle to a frequency of 30-50 Hz.  This means that the targeted muscle would receive 30 – 50 cycles of vibration per second which would force the muscle to contract and relax 30 – 50 times in the same period.  The Meteor provides this optimal frequency of vibration vibrating between 30-90 Hz.

 

Additionally, the 120 degrees of heat that is used by the Meteor has been shown to be the ideal temperature for healing and muscle relaxation. This in turn speeds the rate of nutrient replenishment. Heat can help your body to feel better and recover faster, as shown in these studies and articles:

The Meteor is a scientifically backed product that is designed to provide relief from soreness to those who are working to better themselves physically.  If you want to get stronger, be more flexible, or reduce soreness after your strenuous workouts, recovery is an essential part of the process.  The Meteor effectively combines heat and vibration into the ultimate massage recovery ball. Try it and discover what the combination of heat and vibration does for your recovery program.
