Unlock Your Full Potential with Recovapro Lite

For 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 usual wear-and-tear so that satellite cell proliferation will be more significant; thus, more new muscle cells formed. So if you want to build muscle, you must 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 been 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 been shown to increase inflammatory and non-inflammatory macrophages. These cells help with the inflammation 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 responsible for maintaining muscle mass, regeneration, and hypertrophy.
  • Vibration enhances myotube formation from the fusion of myoblasts, the cells that develop muscle cells and form muscle fibres.


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