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 principle by which Power Plate® machines work lies in the law of motion, stated by Sir Isaac Newton: that the force of an object is equal to its mass multiplied by acceleration, or f = m x a. What this means is that one can improve functional force (stability, strength or power) by either applying more mass or more acceleration to the body. Many forms of training and conditioning use mass - as seen in methods with weight machines, free weights, etc. Power Plate® machines, instead, use the second half of this equation, by applying acceleration to the body, while keeping mass, i.e. your body weight, the same.
This is a real breakthrough in training and conditioning as we can now optimally "load" the human frame while minimizing high impact, high load, and high stress factors. Gravity is the force that adds load to the human body every second of every day for every movement we perform. Through Acceleration Training™ exercise, Power Plate® machines make the body feel as though it "weighs" more every time acceleration forces increase.
How Power Plate can help you
Power Plate is a great alternative for people who enjoy an active lifestyle, but do not have the time for a lengthy work-out three or more times a week. Acceleration Training exercise using Power Plate offers a number of important benefits that will help fitness goals easily be achieved or exceeded. These benefits include measurable outcomes, such as increased muscle strength and flexibility, better core conditioning and stability.
Power Plate provides a simple solution to preventing age-related muscle loss, bone density loss and skin wrinkles. Firstly, exercise using Power Plate contributes to a more youthful feeling due to an increase in the secretion of serotonin, the "feel good" neurotransmitter. Secondly, not only can Power Plate improve muscle strength, but they also help increase flexibility and range of motion while stimulating the production of collagen, creating tighter, more beautiful skin. And finally Power Plate helps play a vital role in enhancing wellness and overall quality of life.
