The Science Behind Power Plate®
Power Plate® equipment is the premium vibration device powering a new dimension in wellness solutions for all ages, lifestyles and physical abilities.
It uses the principles of Acceleration Training™ to stimulate the body’s natural response to vibration. These vibrations transmit waves of energy throughout the body, activating muscle contractions between 25 and 50 times per second, enhancing overall performance in sessions as short as 15 minutes a day, 3 times a week.
How does it Work?
Acceleration Training™ with Power Plate® machines creates instability in the human body, as with each vibration the body is forced to perform reflexive muscle actions, multiple times per second. Furthermore, these contractions must work in multiple dimensions as the Power Plate® machines actually oscillate in all three planes, exactly as the human body is designed to do. The net result is an incredible improvement in force production, or strength and power.
The Power Plate® produces a three dimensional wave-form vibration by with energy is transferred to the body. Vibration technology exploits the body’s inactive reflexive response to disruptions in stability, which stimulates enhanced muscle strength and performance. Therapist report that 10 minutes of Power-Plate Training is equivalent to 60 min of conventional workout.
- Stretch – For better ROM to lengthen, relax and clean muscle fibers.
- Stability & Coordination – Improve balance and reflexes.
- Strength – Recruit more muscle fibers in less time with less weights with faster results.
- Core – Improves the center of all energy and power faster to help eliminate low back pain.
- Massage and Relaxation – Ahhh a total body massage after an invigorating workout.
