About Power Plate®

…actually it is rocket science…
Whole body vibration technology was first used and researched in the former Soviet Union during the 1960’s to prepare their cosmonauts for space and to combat muscle atrophy.

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.
