Enhanced circulatory effects are found with individuals
utilizing the Power Plate resulting in increased flexibility,
mobility, stability, and balance.
The Power Plate offers individuals a unique 3-dimensional
vibrating platform – it moves up and down, side to side,
and front to back. The platform creates an environment
that destabilizes the body thus demands that your body
reacts by causing involuntary muscle activation.
Utilizing vibration training stimulates lymphatic flush, can
ease discomfort, enhance recovery from damaged tissue,
and restore your body so you can perform the activities
Whole Body Vibration Builds Bones
Power Plate® training leads to a significant increase in hip area bone density (1.5%), as well as an increase in muscle strength and postural control in postmenopausal and postural control in postmenopausal women.
Whole Body Vibration Exercise. Is It Good For You?
Whole body vibration has been recently proposed as an exercise intervention because of its potential for increasing force generating capacity in the lower limbs. Its recent popularity is due to the combined effects on the neuromuscular and neuroendocrine systems. Preliminary results seem to recommend vibration exercise as a therapeutic approach for sarcopenia and possibly osteoporosis. This review analyses state of the art whole body vibration exercise techniques, suggesting reasons why vibration may be an effective stimulus for human muscles and providing the rationale for future studies.
