Power Plate is harmonic vibration, instantly triggering the body's natural reflex stabilization mechanism to adapt to changes in the natural environment. Rapid, precise, and predictable reflexive activation prepares our body for dynamic activities at a subconscious level. With each harmonic vibration, Power Plate stimulates rapid reflexive muscle responses (Tonic Vibration Reflex or TVR) through our proprioceptors, improving functional performance, gait and locomotion, balance, range of motion, circulation and stability. Power Plate's vibrating surface vibrates 25-50 times per second, resulting in corresponding muscle activation. Performing an exercise at 30Hz for 30 seconds will provoke 900 muscle actions. This means you can accelerate acquisition and retention of skills associated with movement at a rapid rate.
