|G Force (Pivotal)
The iVibration Pro is a private labelled dual mode machine. The Chinese manufacture offers this same machine in different colors, stickers, slight tower, handle and console mods and or “Bells & Whistles” to more than a dozen other brand names around the world. The iVibration Pro has two modes of vibration, low frequency pivotal, and low amplitude lineal. So while it may seem attractive to have both pivotal and lineal vibration, neither of these modes result in significant benefit or stimulation for the body. The iVibration company make various false advertising claims and as such fail both the Company and Warranty badge. The support provided with the iVibration is of decent quantity, but below average quality. Overall I would warn against spending on a machine like iVibration Pro.
The iVibration Pro scored a total of 51 points, which just sees a pass on the Performance badge. The iVibration Pro is a low frequency range pivotal machine ranging from 5Hz to 16Hz, and a maximum amplitude of 9mm at the edge of the platform, resulting in a maximum G force of 5g’s. The lineal mode on the machine has a frequency range from 20Hz to 43Hz with a maximum amplitude of 2mm, resulting in a maximum G force of 7g’s. There is no frequency display on the iVibration Pro, just speed levels which is not useful.
The iVibration brand has not been studied nor has the iVibration Pro model, so the iVibration Pro fails on the Science badge.
iVibration falsely advertise their frequency and G force specifications, and provide incorrect information their technology type. iVibration also provide incorrect information about their company (e.g. claim that they are product designers), the product (e.g. claim “commercial grade”), and the technology (e.g. “circular vibration with translation”). iVibration have been selling WBV since 2012. The iVibration Pro is a private labelled machine, so no points awarded for innovation and there is no sign of any charitable program by iVibration. Overall iVibration fail the Company badge with a score of 11.
The iVibration fails the Warranty Badge due to also failing the Company badge, with a score of 23. As explained in our methodology, a warranty is only as good as the company behind it, and iVibration leave a lot to be desired. The iVibration has a standard 3 year warranty. There is a 30 days returns policy, but the terms are not advertised. Spare parts are warehoused locally but no on-site servicing is available.
The iVibration Pro comes with below average support and failed on the Support badge with a score of 35. iVibration Pro do advertise to provide personal coaching, there are a collection of online training videos, you a low quality user guide. No online courses or workshops are provided. A business phone number and live chat are provided for communication.
