Power Plate is a suitable treatment for various ailments afflicting the aging population, and the whole body vibration technology behind Power Plate produces measurable results. Healthcare professionals have reported benefits in conditions ranging from debilitating chronic conditions to obesity concerns.
Power Plate has been scientifically proven to improve balance, muscular flexibility, and gait.
Increases in neuromuscular activation caused by Power Plate, improves neuromuscular communication and functional stability. Improvements in kinesthesia “the sense that detects body position, weight, or movement of the muscles, tendons and joints…is responsible for the body's orientation in space”, and dramatically decreases fall risk.5
Research shows that the performance of elderly subjects who were exposed to Whole Body Vibration over a 3-month period was found to improve the balance and muscle strength of elderly individuals who normally did not exercise regularly and who were able to walk independently. Furthermore, none of the subjects had a fall one year after completion of the study.6
