PowerPlate Therapy Benefits
We’re here to help those with challenging, complex chronic health conditions.
Power Plate® machines create vibrations that cause instability throughout the body. As these vibrations transmit waves of energy, a variety of muscles subconsciously contract to stabilize the body. This rapid cycle of muscle contraction and release is what makes training with Power Plate® equipment so effective.
Acceleration Training™ was discovered in the former Soviet Union, where it was found to effectively combat the negative effects of the zero-gravity environment in space. Cosmonauts were faced with considerable loss of muscle strength and bone density from their time in space, and Acceleration Training™ exercise apparently helped reverse these effects.
However, this new form of training was unknown in Western Europe until after the fall of the Iron Curtain, when the Dutch sports expert Guus van der Meer introduced the technology, resulting in the development of the first Power Plate® model in 1999. Since then, Power Plate® technology has been adapted for the masses so it is now possible for everyone to enjoy training on Power Plate® machines.
That means you can strength train without the need to add extra weights, thus without overloading the body and its joints. Power Plate® machines everybody from high-level, high-performance athletes, to the elderly, to those simply wishing to improve their general health and fitness levels.
