Whole Body Vibration

I recently purchased a vibrating platform to work with Whole Body Vibration. The units used to cost around $2000, but the prices have come down considerably.
The unit I list here costs around $150 on amazon.com

Another unit to consider is the LifePro Rumblex Max 4D Vibration Plate Exercise Machine with Loop Resistance Bands. This unit utilizes three types of vibration, whereas the Hurtle uses only oscillation.
