The Power-Plate is a resistance machine providing an outcome similar to but beneficial than, working out with free weights or weight-bearing equipment.
Power-Plate training requires only 1/3 the amount of time required for conventional training. The Power-Plate is able to achieve these results through supercompensation of the muscular system.
Vibration training on the Power Plate is used to substantially improve muscle strength and performance, flexibility and range of motion, enhance critical blood flow throughout the body, expedite the recovery and regeneration of damaged tissue and ultimately, enhance the general wellness and quality of life for individuals.
This means people are able to achieve a better physical well being, improve their athletic capabilities and rehabilitate injuries quicker, regardless of medical, neurological or physical condition.
Impact of Power-Plate® on cellulite:
A very well established dermatology centre in Germany studied the effects of Power-Plate on cellulite levels on 60 women.
After 6 months the participants showed an enormous decrease in cellulite levels by exercising only 3 times a week for an average of just 11 minutes on the Power-Plate per session.
A group combining Power-Plate with cardio-fitness took four times as long to achieve only a marginally better result, proving that the most of the result is attributable to the Power-Plate.
Strength increase after Power-Plate® compared with resistance training:
At the University of Leuven in Belgium extensive research was done with the Power-Plate.
One of the studies investigated the difference between conventional strength training and Power-Plate.
The results indicate that use of the Power-Plate leads to the same strength increase over a 12 week period, exercising 3 times per week, as you would reach with conventional strength but in far less time.
This research proves that Power-Plate is a great way to increase strength.
Bone Density & Cartlidge Regeneration:
Effect of 6-month Power-Plate® on hip density, muscle strength and postural control in postmenopausal women.
One of the main problems with getting older is the loss of bone-density and with that the higher risk of breaking bones.
In this study the changes in bone density of 70 elderly people was measured over a 6 month programme.
The results indicate that only the group that used the Power-Plate gained bone density while normal resistance training resulted in a decrease in bone density.
Not only is bone density increased but also strength and balance are improved. These are two other important factors in remaining fit and healthy.
Impact of Power-Plate® on muscles during rehabilitation:
In order to investigate the possibilities of using Power-Plate in rehabilitation, the University of Graz in Austria measured the strength increase of knee rehabilitation patients.
1 group did normal exercises and the other used the Power-Plate.
After 5 weeks the strength increase for the Power-Plate group increased by more than 125%.
This was almost twice as much as for the conventional rehabilitation group.
Power-Plate proves itself to be an excellent device to use in rehabilitation situations.
Power-Plate effects on Blood Circulation:
The Power-Plate substantially improves muscle strength, performance and flexibility.
Studies have shown vibration therapy on the Power Plate enhances blood distribution, which is critical in regenerating damaged tissues as well as in the circulatory system's ability to deliver vital nutrients and hormones throughout the body.
Ultimately, it can enhance an individual's general wellness and quality of life, regardless of age, physical and neurological condition.
What is Power Plate?
What Is 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.
Acceleration Training™ on Power Plate® 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 medical research.
Power Plate Leading the Industry
The three-dimensional vibration technology used in Power Plate® machines continues to lead the industry, and its benefits are grounded in extensive academic and independent scientific research. This research is ongoing in the US, Europe and Asia. Our company also boasts a distinguished Scientific Medical Advisory Board, made up of 10 MDs, PhDs and industry experts from around the world. The advisory board, and our internal team of education and training experts, reflect Power Plate International's commitment to advancing the science of health and wellness through vibration.
Power Plate Relaxation
Spa / Beauty
More than just an exercise and rehabilitation machine, Power Plate® machines offer the capacity for whole body massage and relaxation. Not only can Power Plate® machines passively work all the muscle groups in the body, but they can reduce stress by decreasing cortisol levels while raising levels of serotonin. Using Power Plate® machines helps increase circulation and oxygenate blood flow, leading to a decrease in toxins in the body, which causes a reduction in the appearance of cellulite. These benefits contribute significantly to the complete spa experience.
Power Plate an Anti Aging Machine
Anti / Active Aging
Power Plate® machines provide a simple solution to preventing age-related muscle loss, bone density loss and skin wrinkles. Firstly, Acceleration Training™ exercise using Power Plate® machines 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® machines 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® machines help play a vital role in enhancing wellness and overall quality of life.
