Sound and music stimuli are transmitted to the four zones of the wooden resonance diaphragm and headphones through a control module with setting of the type and intensity of vibration. The external control module is equipped with an authorial audio composition, which is a synthesis of low-frequency waves and a variety of audio and music stimuli. This composition specifically affects biorhythmic pulsation—from resting, to excited, to deeply relaxed. The basic duration of the intervention is 20 minutes. The Vibrobed project has undergone a four-year experimental technical and conceptual development. The final solution showed a positive effect on the autonomic nervous system and subjective physical and psychological experience.
The idea of a vibrating bed follows the pioneering empirical research of Olav Skille (Norwegian neurologist and founder of vibroacoustic therapy) and Danish professor Tony Wigram. Vibrobed uses not only innovative technology (originally used bass speakers), but also an innovative way of transmitting low-frequency waves—sequential dosing and diverse modulation of sound waves (authorial system). The aim of our research is to focus on evidence based practice and to use knowledge in practice. In cooperation with Palacký University in Olomouc, the first systematic research studies (2017-2018) took place and subsequently the cooperation developed into a doctoral study programme focusing on applied research in vibroacoustics in healthy population and people with disabilities.
The aim of the first two studies was to determine the effects of the Vibrobed vibrating bed on the autonomic nervous system (ANS) and subjective experience. The effects were measured by the spectral analysis of heart rate variability by pre-test/post-test method in three interventions (30 people, 90 interventions, 180 vegetative system pre/post tests). The results of the statistical analysis (t-test) indicate the potential of Vibrobed to stimulate the autonomic nervous system (ANS). Statistically high significance of the effect on ANS was proved, namely on its parasympathetic part and overall spectral performance of the individual. Through Vibrobed, it is possible to achieve an overall relaxation of the organism, to promote its regeneration and the ability to cope with stress more easily. In the second part of the research the differences in subjective perception of physical and mental state before and after the intervention were monitored. The results of the statistical analysis point to the potential of the intervention to influence body sensations, emotional experience, mental processes and subjective well-being of the subjects (Vilímek, Kantor, Chráska, 2019).
