Power PlateÂ® equipment is the world leader in vibration training. It uses the principles of Acceleration Trainingâ„˘ to stimulate the bodyâ€™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.
Dutch Olympic trainer Guus van der Meer was the first person to harness whole body vibration technology and adapt it to meet both the needs of elite athletes and every day users. Today, Power Plate International has a presence in more than 100 countries and thousands of satisfied users.
Sir Isaac Newton would have loved the Power Plate machine. His second law explains how Acceleration Trainingâ„˘ works. Force is produced by accelerating your body (represented by mass in the equation). So instead of adding weights, we simply move you to create forces up to an equivalent of six G-Forces.
