For both muscle repair and regeneration, the activation of the satellite cells plays an important role. It’s also the process that stimulates the growth of new muscles. However, for a muscle-growing process to begin, it needs to be prompted by tissue damage beyond the normal wear-and-tear, so that satellite cell proliferation will be greater, thus, more new muscle cells formed. If you want to build muscle, you have to hit the gym and train hard to optimize satellite cell activation and promote myogenesis or the formation of muscular tissue.


The application of mechanical vibration has known to speed up the recovery process following exercise-induced muscle damage, promote satellite cell activation, and initiate muscle growth:

  • Application of vibration in the early stage of muscle damage has shown to increase inflammatory and non-inflammatory macrophages, the cells that help with the inflammatory and resolution of the inflammatory processes, reducing muscle recovery time following exercise-induced muscle damage.
  • Vibration has also been shown to promote satellite cell activation and differentiation. Satellite cells are muscle stem cells, which are responsible for the maintenance of muscle mass, regeneration, and hypertrophy.
  • Vibration enhances myotube formation from the fusion of myoblasts, the cells that develop muscle cells and form muscle fibers.


All of these are evidence of the effects of vibration therapy on muscle building and rebuilding. And as a vibration therapy tool, Recovapro can arguably activate the satellite cells and deliver these effects, provided that the right condition, such as optimal nutrition, hydration, rest, and sleep, is set in place
