Power Plate® is the premium vibration-exercise machine powering a new dimension in wellness solutions for all ages, lifestyles and physical abilities. The potential benefits from incorporating a Power Plate® workout into your regular routine, whether you are an elite-level athlete, fitness enthusiast, or average user, are tremendous. We see these benefits not only in the results of independent research, but in the testimonials of our multitude of users.

Power Plate® 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.

Fitness

Power Plate® machines are a great alternative for people who enjoy an active lifestyle, but do not have the time for a lengthy workout three or more times a week. Acceleration Training™ exercise using Power Plate® 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, flexibility, core conditioning and stability, better range of motion, and faster recovery from injury.

You don't have to be an athlete or need physical therapy to benefit from using Power Plate® machines. There are health benefits possible for everyone, including enhanced metabolism, increased bone mineral density, reduction of the stress hormone cortisol, elevation of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) and improved lymphatic drainage. Power Plate® machines help the body in all these ways with little impact on joints and ligaments, and without always feeling like traditional exercise.

Dancers/Athletes

Acceleration Training™ exercise complements all dance disciplines. In just minutes, range of motion and stability increase, providing a perfect warm-up before class, rehearsal or competition. The vibrations stimulate fast-twitch muscle fibers, improving jump strength, balance, stamina and extension. PowerPlate® machines speed recovery and regeneration from injury.

Acceleration Training™ exercise is designed to enhance sports training as both a supplement to and an alternative form of training. The vibrations stimulate fast-twitch muscle fibers, providing a dramatic increase in explosive strength, motor learning, muscular endurance and overall agility. Professional sports teams throughout the world use Power Plate® machines as part of their strength, conditioning, and rehab programs.

Disease/Disability

It is well known that individuals with arthritis, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, osteoporosis and obesity, and many other conditions, benefit tremendously from physical activity.

The benefits of physical activity are now within reach for many of those not able to do conventional exercise such as walking, weight lifting or cycling. By stimulating the body's natural ability to increase muscle strength, balance, blood circulation, lymph system drainage, endocrine system response and bone mineral density, individuals using Power Plate® technology are now able to fight the affects of many debilitating diseases. Although, there are no cures for many of these conditions, the Power Plate® machine can provide relief from many of the symptoms suffered and contribute to a better quality of life.

Bone Density/Circulation

Scientific research has shown that bone density increases and balance improves after training on the Power Plate. Combined with stronger muscles and an improved sense of balance, Power Plate workouts make it offers a positive contribution to the battle against osteoporosis and reduces the risk of falling especially for the elderly.

Research also shows that vibration training improves blood circulation. This increase in blood flow results in better metabolic performance, increased oxygen and nutrient delivery, and improved lymphatic flow. Delivery of nutrition to the deepest cellular level is magnified, while the removal of toxins and metabolic waste supports improved immune systems, enhances the appearance of skin, and supports regeneration and repair throughout the body.
