    A technique called biomechanical stimulation is getting more and more attention for its effect of giving muscle more energy. How does it work? You stand on the machine or plate as they are called (more advanced ones like Swiss Wing allow you to train your muscles more actively and you don't need to stand on them), and the machine vibrates to stimulate muscle energy and strength. Early research shows that the technique provides the benefits of flexibility, energy, and even better coordination and balance. These machines are used in gyms, by professional sports teams, and by patients suffering from chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia.
