The Science Behind Power Plate®

Power Plate’s patented PrecisionWave™ Technology is engineered to activate the body’s natural reflexive response to precision vibration, engaging the muscles in a consistent and controlled manner that results in accelerated training benefits.

Power Plate’s effectiveness has been proven in dozens of medical and scientific studies as well as clinical rehabilitation and wellness facilities, sports performance centers, and are currently utilized by a vast majority of professional and collegiate sports teams in the US and many others around the world.
