The VibroFit Pro is a privately labeled, low frequency, pivotal motion, Chinese designed vibration machine. These type of vibration machines are not a true representation of Whole Body Vibration. Unfortunately due to their low cost, a lot of people focused on price point and advertised discounts, never experience the true benefits of the real technology. That being said, there are a small number of benefits to using a machine like this, such as improved balance and blood circulation. I would not recommend the VibroFit Pro for fitness and medical benefits, despite the companies advertising.
The VibroFit Pro scored a total of 22 points, making it a fail on the Performance badge. The VibroFit Pro is a low frequency pivotal motion machine, this Chinese design is sold under several different brand names. The frequency range is from 5 to 11Hz, which is not displayed on the control panel, only 1-99 “speed levels”.
The VibroFit Pro, has not been used in scientific research, therefore, the VibroFit Pro failed the Science badge with a score of 0.
Froothie scored 26 on the Company badge, giving them a fail. Froothie do not advertise their G force, and the listed amplitude is incorrect. Froothie advertise incorrect information about the product (e.g. claim same benefits as high G machines) and incorrect information about the technology (e.g. compare it is cardiovascular exercise). There is no innovation from Froothie, they are simply an importer of a Chinese private labelled product, operating since 2012 but only selling WBV since 2016. There is no charitable program advertised on the Froothie website, nor could we find any examples of this.
The VibroFit Pro fails the Warranty Badge due to also failing the Company badge, with a score of 12. As explained in our methodology, a warranty is only as good as the company behind it, and with all the false advertising on the Froothie site, suggests a company without integrity. The VibroFit Pro has a standard 3 year warranty, but you have to return your machine for warranty purposes and pay for the shipping! There is no returns policy advertised. Forget about spare parts for a machine like this, and no on-site servicing support.
The VibroFit has no real support, scoring 20 and thus failing the Support badge. Online training resources consist of some low quality workout videos. There is no personal support, or courses/workshops are available. The machine comes with a basic user manual but not worthy of any points. Froothie advertise a phone number on their website, and are active on social media, and have a live chat option on the website.
