Power Plate is a vibrating platform that helps you prepare faster, perform better, and recover quicker. It makes you feel better by stimulating natural reflexes.
Power Plate is a vibrating platform that helps you prepare faster, perform better, and recover quicker. It makes you feel better by stimulating natural reflexes, increasing muscle activation, and improving circulation. Power Plate enhances any movement, simple or complex, typically performed on the ground.
Engineered to activate the body’s natural reflexive response to vibrations, the Power Plate platform moves 25 to 50 times per second to engage muscles in a consistent and controlled manner. It’s been scientifically established that our whole-body vibration technology speeds up health and fitness benefits to deliver faster, longer–lasting results. Power Plate helps you become who you want to be.
Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned professional, Power Plates whole-body vibration technology can help you achieve your goals.
- Scientifically proven to improve strength, fitness, and flexibility, reduce pain, and help with muscle recovery – all in less time
- With a legacy of 21 years in the industry, Power Plate’s PrecisionWave™ Technology is still unmatched in terms of quality, efficacy, and comfort
- Frequency and intensity are under user control, ensuring comfort, while the rapid reflex response helps boost circulation and lymphatic flush
- Multi-directional vibration creates an authentic environment mimicking everyday movement effects
- Typical sessions range between 15 and 30 minutes, though you will feel the effects even after only a few minutes
The unique vibration of the Power Plate® machine destabilises the body and causes a rapid reflex contraction, making more muscles do more actions more often.
The rate of up and down movement of the plate is one of the keys to success and relates to the frequency of reflex muscle contraction. Most people get maximum muscle activation at about 33-35 Hz (times per second). Power Plate models allow a frequency between 25Hz and 50Hz providing variability for different applications and user preferences.
The direction and type of movement is also important. Power Plate does not rock or see-saw. The whole plate moves in the same direction at the same time, mostly in a vertical direction (that is, up and down).The movement of the Power Plate is gentle – between 1mm and 2mm. There is no jerking, jarring, or shaking sensation.
A superior feature of Power Plate is that it also moves subtly backwards and forwards, and side-to-side. This three-dimensional “tri-planar” movement simulates the “authentic” environment of real life ground reaction forces, stimulating the body’s natural responses, and improving real life movements.
Power Plate oscillation is harmonic. This refers to the smoothness of the vibration, which, with Power Plate, is very consistent and predictable – even with people of different weights on the platform. The importance of smooth harmonic motion is that the body learns best when stimuli are repetitive and precise, so the neuromuscular system receives optimal stimulation without experiencing discomfort.
OUR SATISFIED CUSTOMERS
“Traditional training on a single exercise machine is like having a Vitamin C tablet, you are just focusing on one aspect. The same exercise on the Power Plate machine is like having the ‘whole orange’. With the ‘whole orange’ you are getting all the goodness - such as strengthening, lengthening, hydration, and postural stability - in a very efficient way. 30 times per second more efficiently, in fact! Power Plate gives you so much more than a single exercise machine can. It provides multiple functionality to enhance how you live life rather than just gaining strength for gym machines.”
