Full Body Vibration

Power Plate®

The Power Plate® machine offers whole-body vibration training. The unit consists of a platform upon which you sit or stand. The frequency and amplitude of the vibration is changed to create instability in your body. These vibrations transmit waves of energy, activating muscle contractions 25 to 50 times per second. The Power Plate® machine oscillates in all three planes so it forces the body to perform reflexive muscle actions, as a response to what the brain perceives as instability. The Power Plate® sessions are relatively easy, short and pain free. Sessions range from 10-15 minutes. No special clothing is required.
