Power PlateŽ 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.
Acceleration Training - on Power PlateŽ equipment offers a
host of benefits, ranging from an immediate improvement in
blood circulation, to a variety of other measurable
outcomes: such as increased muscle strength and flexibility,
improved range of motion, decreased cellulite, increased
bone mineral density, reduced pain and soreness and faster
recovery. Our three-dimensional vibration technology
continues to lead the industry, and its benefits are
grounded in extensive academic and independent scientific
Acceleration Training - with Power PlateŽ 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
PlateŽ 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 PlateŽ 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
PlateŽ 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 PlateŽ machines make
the body feel as though it ?weighs? more every time
acceleration forces increase.
The result is that you work against a far greater influence
or "load" of gravity in every movement you perform. This is
the essence of all strength and conditioning programs and
Power PlateŽ machines simply use a different part of the
same equation to achieve this! In fact, the amazing outcomes
seen with Acceleration Training? exercise respect the same
biological and physiological laws of the body as witnessed
in other forms of training. The difference is merely the
nature of the stimulus applied (i.e. acceleration), and not
the human response.
Benefits of Power PlateŽ.
Power PlateŽ machines are 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 PlateŽ machines offers a
number of important benefits that will help fitness goals
easily be achieved or exceeded. These benefits range from an
immediate improvement in blood circulation, to a variety of
other measurable outcomes, such as increased muscle strength
and flexibility, better range of motion, better core
conditioning and stability, and faster recovery.
Wellness and Power PlateŽ.
You don't have to be an athlete or in need of physical
therapy to benefit from using Power PlateŽ machines. There
are health benefits possible for everyone, such as enhanced
metabolism, increased bone mineral density, reduction of the
stress hormone cortisol, elevation of Human Growth Hormone
and improved lymphatic flow. Power PlateŽ machines help the
body in all these ways with little impact on joints and
ligaments, and without always feeling like traditional
