Power Plate

Power Plate is a certified medical device which can be used for a wide variety of people using the principles of acceleration training exercise to stimulate the body’s natural response to vibration. Vibrations transmit waves of energy and your body’s muscles subconsciously contract and relax. It is through this rapid cycle of muscle contraction that makes the Power Plate so effective.

What are the benefits:

  • Improving muscular strength and power
  • Alleviating pain
  • Increasing bone mineral density and preventing bone mineral loss related to aging
  • Improved circulation and cardiovascular function
  • Improved flexibility and range of motion
  • Falls prevention

How it works:
Using the Power Plate is the ‘microwave of exercise’ as a workout of 10minutes is the equivalent of doing a 30minute workout otherwise. Doing a squat on the Power Plate stimulates the same amount of muscle activation as doing one with a 59kg weight on your shoulders!

The Power Plate which is endorsed by several elite high performance organisations including the USA Olympic Training Centre, uses whole body vibrations to enhance the effects of any movement performed on it. It provides results equal to those seen in graded resistance training, with low impact and a decreased delayed onset of muscle soreness.
