A power plate is a type of exercise equipment that uses vibrations to stimulate muscle contractions. The user stands or performs exercises on a platform that vibrates at a high frequency, which causes the muscles to contract and relax rapidly. This can help to increase strength, flexibility, and circulation, and may also aid in the recovery of muscle and bone injuries. The power plate typically has adjustable settings for frequency and amplitude, allowing the user to customize their workout.
Gravity applies a constant load on the skeletal system that’s what causes bones to maintain a certain density. Working out on a Power Plate increases this load on the bones helping increase bone density.
The soothing vibrations of Power Plate help increase blood flow that in turn can help improve muscle recovery times. Additionally, placing sore muscles on the vibrating surface helps alleviate muscle soreness.
Seniors using a Power Plate can perform exercises that help improve balance and stability. These exercises are designed to engage muscle fibers and also help retrain motor patterns resulting in improvements in balance.
Using a Power Plate routinely has been shown to help increase flexibility. In a study conducted using whole body vibrations indicated that the vibration had a statistically significant influence on flexibility
Tiny vibrations flowing through your body enhance the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to cells and support their functioning. Multiple studies have shown that whole body vibration increases skin blood flow
Power Plate forces your body to work harder during workouts to stabilize against the vibrations which in turn helps burn more calories.
