    I never heard of this, but sounds like it might work.

    Hmmm. Not so sure about it working. And would even if it did effect some change would it be likely to be clinically significant. Probably getting off your tush and exercising might be a better bet, rather than look for some miracle passive treatment

    ...but who knows, I could be wrong!

    I did find this paper on vibratory exercise. Total body vibration while exercise seems to be a fad that is in at present. The study only got 4/10 on PEDro but it might be worth looking at:

    Efficiency of vibration exercise for glycemic control in type 2 diabetes patients
