I think you can do either. I'll confess that I don't know exactly what they makers would be prescribing. However, the theory is that you can hold the position statically, because the vibrations work on the muscle reflex activity, so it doesn't actually require movement. That's the theory, anyway.
I've seen research, however, where athletes (ballet dancers) have done exercises actively - in other words, do the squat movement with vibration. That study found improvements in strength. So I'm a little at a loss - on one hand I know the theory is to hold the position, but the research has used movement. So I'd go with the latter, if in doubt.
