About Power Plate®

Using Power Plate is the innovative, time-saving and results-driven way to improve your fitness and wellbeing.

The history of Power Plate is a story about exploring new frontiers and expanding what is known about exercise, health, and human potential. From space programs to elite athletes, wheelchair bound persons regaining the ability to walk, to the average exerciser; Power Plate offers safe and inclusive programming for both active and aging populations.

Acceleration training has crossed many thresholds, everything from rebuilding bone density to improving blood flow. Power Plate is accredited in over 120 countries spanning the genre of fitness, health, anti-aging, wellness, physiotherapy, rehabilitation, high performance, and professional athletics. The majority of professional sports teams use it as a standard training protocol, as well as coaches, trainers, scientists, doctors, and therapists.

Whole body vibration was first used by cosmonauts to combat muscle and bone loss caused by extended stays in zero gravity. Today, Power Plate has continued developing the technology to create products and training programs that deliver legendary performance for professional sports teams, medical facilities, health clubs, studios and individuals around the globe.

Power Plate’s vibrating platform triggers immediate contractions of working and stabilizing muscles, resulting in positive improvements in strength, balance, flexibility, postural control, circulation, and coordination. In addition, the harmonic vibration contributes to positive hormonal responses.

The patented, 3D vibration of Power Plate is gentle and low impact (no jerking, jarring or discomfort), and most times you can’t even see the person on it moving from the vibration. On each Power Plate, the whole platform moves in the same direction at the same time predominantly in a vertical direction (that is, up and down). A superior characteristic of Power Plate, however, is that it also moves subtly backwards and forwards, and side-to-side. This three-dimensional “tri-planar” movement is key to enhanced proprioceptive stimulus. Our bodies are designed to move and respond this way, and so Power Plate creates an “authentic” environment to stimulate the body’s natural responses. Power Plate also produces consistent, harmonic vibration, which feels comfortable and safe for all users. The importance of  a predictable, harmonic motion is that the body learns best when stimuli are repetitive and precise, so the neuromuscular system gets the most optimal stimulus.

Using Power Plate will keep you revitalized in daily life.  In just a few minutes, you can increase the sense of your well-being by performing simple stretches and easy movements to counter the negative effects of sedentary living. 

Set your workout on vibrate and incorporate the five key elements of effective training—Stretch, Balance, Core, Strength and Massage— into a 30-minute total-body workout using Acceleration Training™ from Power Plate.

Do more in less time and get the best workout you've ever had.
