Power plate – Discover the Difference with Phyx you Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation
First developed for Astronauts to combat the loss of muscle strength and bone density from their time in space. Based on this technology, sports experts then introduced the Power Plate model in 1999 to be adapted for everyone.
The Power Plate machines use the principles of Acceleration Training exercise to stimulate the body’s natural response to vibration.
Vibrations transmit waves of energy, your body’s muscles subconsciously contract and release, it is through this rapid cycle of muscle contraction that makes the Power Plate machine so effective.
The development of the Power Plate means you can strength train without the need to add extra weights, thus without overloading the body and its joints.
The machine can be used by everyone – from a high-performance athlete to the elderly.
With the professional guidance of your Exercise Physiologist and Physiotherapist, we can develop the correct sequence of exercises that is adjusted to your personal abilities to determine the benefits and effects of a training session on the Power Plate machine just for you.
