POWER PLATE ACCELERATES
YOUR TRAINING

Many traditional exercises can be done on the Power Plate, and the results are magnified. It’s thanks to our 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.  More muscles doing more actions more often.

POWER PLATE CAN HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT

Research shows, when used as part of an active lifestyle, Power Plate can have a significant impact upon the reduction of visceral body fat. In a 12 month study Power Plate training was found to be more effective at conventional exercise at long term reduction in visceral fat.  Other studies have found that performing resistance training while using whole body vibration had the best fat loss effect.

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 gets the body into the parasympathetic “rest and recover state”. It stimulates lymphatic flush, eases pain, and promotes faster soft tissue recovery –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 15 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 15 minutes. Some models even have a virtual trainer with more than 1,000 built-in videos.

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE?

Power Plate received certification as a Medical Device Manufacturer by the UK/EU certifying body. This means that the quality is medical grade, the benefits proven by independent scientific research, and, most importantly, for your peace of mind, the SAFETY of Power Plate is accepted – with not one reported incident of injury in all the years Power Plate has been available.

 

Power Plate’s machine product line has Mayo Clinic NEAT™ certification. NEAT™ stands for Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis and focuses on the daily calories an individual burns while doing normal, non-exercise related activities. Power Plate usage results in an increase in calorie burn of more than 10% vs. baseline. Increasing NEAT™ in daily life can result in overall improvements in health, reduced obesity risk factors and weight loss.

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 reflexive muscle activation. The vibrations are harmonic, which are safe, consistent and controlled. The direction of vibration can be measured in three planes and therefore provides an authentic environment that simulates movement in real life. 
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. Research shows, when used as part of an active lifestyle, Power Plate can have a significant impact upon the reduction of visceral body fat. In a 12 month study Power Plate training was found to be more effective at conventional exercise at long term reduction in visceral fat.  Other studies have found that performing resistance training while using whole body vibration had the best fat loss effect.  

CAN I USE POWER PLATE WITHOUT PERFORMING ANY OTHER EXERCISES?
Many people who use Power Plate with no other exercise are happy with their results. Power Plate has been proven to improve cardiovascular fitnes, strength, flexibility, range of motion, and recovery. This means you can hit all your training zones with one piece of equipment. Power Plate can be integrated with many training modalities.
WHO CAN USE POWER PLATE?
We advise everyone to contact their physician or specialist before using Power Plate and recommend they do not start training without first obtaining medical clearance to exercise. If you are currently active, cleared for exercise, and perform weight-bearing exercises, such as weight training or jogging, you are likely to be a good candidate for training on Power Plate. However, every person should be examined on an individual basis by a licensed medical practitioner. As with any form of exercise, if you feel faint, dizzy or ill while working out on Power Plate, you should cease your session immediately. Consult your doctor or specialist before restarting your training.
IS VIBRATION TRAINING SAFE?
There are literally hundreds of thousands of Power Plate users across the world, who have been exercising on the device for many 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 preexisting 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 a certified medical device manufacturer.

WHERE CAN I FIND A POWER PLATE TO TRY OR BUY?
Power Plate can be found in health clubs as well as many independent gyms, spas, leisure centers, clinics, and rehabilitation centers. There is also an ever-expanding selection of specialized Power Plate studios. Please see the Power Plate Locator on our website to find a center or studio near you. Please enquire on our website or call is to discuss your Power Plate purchase.
CAN I USE POWER PLATE EVERY DAY?
Power Plate can be used every day, or even multiple times a day – it all depends on what you’re doing on it. Mobility/flexibility/circulation/recovery exercises can be done as often as you wish. Strength training and cardio training using Power Plate will fatigue the body in the same way that normal exercise can fatigue you. This fatigue is what stimulates the body to adapt and develop, but too much training results in excessive fatigue and over–training. As a very general guide if you are looking for strength and power gains we would suggest three strength training sessions per week, each lasting between 15 and 30 minutes and leaving 48 hours for recovery between sessions. 
IS THERE ANY PROOF POWER PLATE WORKS?

There are tens of thousands of independent, published research studies on different aspects of vibration training, showing that whole body vibration is an accepted and validated training modality for all sorts of therapeutic and performance related goals.
