Confidence Fitness

I have a neighbor who has PD, and his doctor, who also has PD, told him to purchase, and use a machine called "The Confidence Slim Full Body Vibration Platform Fitness Machine." I found them on several sites . . . around $250. The machine is supposed to get you and keep you in shape, which gives drastic aid and relief to those with PD. It is said the machine reduces tremors significantly, though it was not invented for that purpose. Anyone hear anything on this machine?

  • Thank you

  • I have being saying for years now that the worst symptom of Pd is our loss of confidence. It stops us from trying many ways of dealing with Pd, We use walkers because we are scared of falling. That makes us walk with a bad posture with our backs bent. There is no recovery from that. I know I am suggesting that people with Pd can learn to walk properly and regain some of that lost confidence, but short of personally showing them how to walk, I don't see any alternative to the walkers.

  • Actually the gym I used to belong to had two machines

    It was great for post workout

  • I tried one today at my gym today and according to my trainer it's ideal for PDP. It's something new for me and il'm curious to see if it helps my balance.
