Frequently asked questions about Flabélos

Can you lose weight with Flabélos?
Absolutely. The special plate shakes the body, causing a feeling of imbalance in the inner ear. This causes the brain to send signals to the muscles to try to correct it, and they contract and uncontract rapidly to do this. This pulsating helps to speed up the blood circulation through the capillaries, bringing a feeling of heat especially in the areas which need “trimming”. This improved circulation starts to break down toxins and takes fat with it into the urine. Customers who use Flabélos often find they need to go to the loo soon afterwards.

It breaks down toxins?
Yes, because the increased blood flow helps to flush out the tiny capilliaries. This also helps increase bone mass density, especially in the elderly.

So Flabélos might help stop Osteoporosis?
Studies have shown that older people who regularly use Flabélos show increase bone mass density. The improved blood circulation is may also be helpful for diabetics.

Can this machine be used for older people?
Yes! Flabélos is very low impact. You’ll feel benefits with just 2 minutes a day and build from there. If you’re not comfortable standing up you can still benefit by sitting in a chair and putting your legs on the machine. This is especially good for people who need to take exercise very easy.

Can Flabélos be used for children?
While Flabélos can help children to lose weight, we recommend  you consult a doctor. Flabélos should never be used without adult supervision.

Who thought this up?
The forerunner of the Flabélos, a vibrating exercise machine, was invented by Cold War era Soviet space scientists who hoped to extend space missions by combating the effects of long-term weightlessness. They were concerned that without gravity cosmonauts’ joints just kept expanding as their muscles weakened. After prolonged missions on the Mir space station it took cosmonauts a long time to restore muscle-tone and even walk. But use of the machine that later became the Flabélos meant that the cosmonauts could stay weightless in Mir many weeks longer than rival US missions.
