But it seems
the vibrating machine could really hold the key for overweight people

out by New York researchers has shown the machines could offer significant
clinical benefits for obese people suffering from a wide range of
immune problems related to obesity.
A study published
online in The FASEB Journal found that low-intensity vibrations
led to improvements in the immune function of overweight mice.
say if the same effect can be found in people, it could lead to
a number of clinical benefits.
Clinton Rubin, from Stony Brook University, in New York, said: 'This
study demonstrates that mechanical signals can help restore an immune
system compromised by obesity.'
To make the
discovery Rubin led a team which fed a group of adult mice a high
fat diet for seven months to make them obese, significantly damaging
their immune and skeletal systems.
