Can those fancy vibration platforms at your health club or gym really help you burn fat or lose weight, and is there any research behind that?

Is there any significant hormonal response to whole body vibration (WBV)?

What is the effect of vibration training on cardiovascular fitness, and how would it be used for that?

Any effect on lymph fluid or immune health, similar to a trampoline/rebounder?

How about for muscle recovery or delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)? 

How does one actually use a vibration platform the right way?

Can you stack WBV with other so-called "biohacking" modalities, such as photobiomodulation, EWOT, isometric training, etc?
