Whole Body Periodic Acceleration (WBPA) is a non-invasive, drug-free, safe, well-tolerated procedure that consists of moving a subject who lies flat on a mattress with a motorised platform horizontally. WBPA stimulates the inner lining cells of blood vessels to increase the release of nitric oxide into the circulation to the same extent as moderate exercise. Nitric Oxide (NO) has potent anti-inflammatory, vasodilator, anti-arteriosclerotic, and antioxidant properties. Its discovery was the basis for the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1998 that was awarded jointly to Robert F. Furchgott, Louis J. Ignarro and Ferid Murad “for their discoveries concerning nitric oxide as a signalling molecule in the cardiovascular system.”

The increase of Nitric Oxide

  • expands blood vessels
  • accelerates new blood vessel formation
  • increases blood flow (circulation)
  • reduces platelet aggregation
  • reduces white blood cells adhering to the vascular walls
  • suppresses vascular inflammation
  • increases blood perfusion

The potential benefits of WBPA include,

  • Preventing and ameliorating ischemic heart disease
  • Preventing and reducing complication of myocardial infarction
  • Preventing and ameliorating peripheral vascular circulation and disease
  • Enhancing cell antioxidant capacity, reduce inflammation, raise survival rates during emergencies
  • Preventing cerebral infarction, thrombotic stroke, arteriosclerosis
  • Reducing pulmonary hypertension and asthma symptoms
  • Improving heart and lung functions
  • Preventing and improving diabetes and hypertension
  • Reducing cardiovascular sequelae due to hypoxia, increasing survival rate
  • improving Parkinson disease
  • Enhance sex ability
  • Improving body aches, soreness and stiffness
  • Regenerating stem cell tissue
