Ek wil net graag weet of die masjien enig nadele het.
"n Dokter het vir een van my vriendinne gesê as sy haar dood soek moet sy aangaan met die masjien want dit skud glo die organe te veel. Laat weet my so gou as moontlik wat ek is ook tans op die masjien

I don't think occasionally using the 'Body Shaper' will be fatal, and I doubt it would lead to serious vibration exposure.

People who suffer from negative health effects of vibration are usually those who work day after day with prolonged, repeated exposure e.g. people who work with heavy power tools, truck drivers etc. Sometimes the symptoms only show up years later. Studies of bus and truck drivers found that exposure to whole-body vibration could have contributed to certain circulatory, bowel, respiratory, muscle and back problems.

There is some evidence that very slight vibration may improve bone density - but this effect is still being studied.

I have to add that I doubt very much vibration alone will help with body shaping; I don't think there's strong evidence for that. You may want to also post this question to our FitnessDoc to see what he thinks.
