vibration exercise machines

Is it safe for me to use these vibration machines if I have had 2 total knee replacements and 1 hip?

Hi!
An implant can never be as strong as the original knee or hip. Also metal and other materials used in the implants can crack or get displaced by strong vibratory force. So, it is not advisable to use machines with strong vibrations. However, please discuss with your doctor. If using such machines is an occupational necessity then you may need to change the type of work if your doctor and occupational therapist feels the necessity. Take care!
