Why Power Plate

POWER PLATE CAN HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT

Significant weight loss is often reported by those who use Power Plate regularly in conjunction with a healthy, calorie-controlled diet. One of the reasons for this is increased lymphatic flow. Research also shows, when used as part of an active lifestyle, Power Plate may have a significant impact upon the reduction of cellulite and body fat. This may occur due to an increases in metabolism, both during and following exercise.

POWER PLATE ACCELERATES YOUR TRAINING UP TO 5.8X

Many traditional exercises can be done on the Power Plate, and the results are magnified. It’s thanks to proprietary PrecisionWave™ Technology, which is engineered precisely to activate the body’s natural reflexive response to vibration. The surface vibrates 25 to 50 times per second (25Hz to 50Hz), resulting in a natural response that works your muscles harder while doing the same exercises.

INCREASE YOUR STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY

The Power Plate vibrates up and down, side-to-side, and front-to-back, destabilizing the body and promoting the reflexive engagement of soft tissue. Involuntary muscle activity promotes quick, reflexive responses in muscle fibers and an increase in circulation. That means development in whole–body balance, mobility and stability, strength and motor control (muscle memory), in a shorter time frame than with traditional methods.

YOU'LL RECOVER FASTER

Exercise is stress, and the body needs time to rebuild to positively adapt to training. Massage on a Power Plate stimulates lymphatic flush, eases pain, promotes faster recovery of damaged muscles and tendons, improves joint function, and helps you return stronger–all in only a few minutes a day. And even beyond that, you can exercise using a Power Plate with less chance of strain due to the patented multi–directional vibration. With regular use, you’ll find that you prepare faster, perform better and recover quicker.

EXPERIENCE A COMPLETE WORKOUT IN JUST 30 MINUTES

With whole body vibration training, you get a complete, full-body workout incorporating stretch, balance, core, strength-building and massage, all in only as little as 30 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW DOES POWER PLATE WORK?

Engineered precisely to apply the body’s natural reflexive response to vibration, Power Plate technology uses a vibrating platform, which moves 25 to 50 times per second, resulting in corresponding muscle activation. The vibrations are harmonic, which are safe, consistent and controlled levels of vibration, moving in three directions (up and down, forwards and backwards and side to side).

 

WILL USING POWER PLATE HELP ME LOSE WEIGHT?

Significant weight loss is often reported by those who use Power Plate regularly in conjunction with a healthy, calorie-controlled diet. One of the reasons for this is increased lymphatic flow and associated removal of biological waste, and retained fluid. Research shows, when used as part of an active lifestyle, Power Plate may have a significant impact upon the reduction of body fat. This may occur due to increases in metabolism both during and following exercise.

 

IS VIBRATING TRAINING SAFE?

There are literally hundreds of thousands of Power Plate users across the world, who have been exercising on the device for many of years. Such widespread use with no reported negative effects over an extended period demonstrates the safety of training on Power Plate. As with any form of exercise, there are certain pre-existing medical conditions, which may make Power Plate an unsuitable option. 

I HAVE SEEN MANY OTHER VIBRATION PLATFORMS FOR SALE. HOW DOES POWER PLATE DIFFER FROM THESE?

Power Plate is considered the market leader, with more than 15 years’ experience in whole body vibration training, products, and services. To ensure our products offer health and fitness benefits for a wide range of users, they have been developed by our research and product development team based on proven scientific findings regarding the effects of specific vibration exercise programs. Power Plate creates a mechanical stimulation, which ranges from 25Hz to 50Hz, chosen specifically because it is out of the range of the human body's own resonance. Performance Health Systems is the only specialized company in its field to be certified medical device manufacturer.
