Taking elite athletes to the top of their game requires high performance equipment. The Power Plate pro5 High Performance meets their needs while exceeding expectations. The column–less design allows for a full 360-degree range of motion around the plate surface while also allowing the integration of other equipment such as a squat rack. With this level of freedom, athletes can perform a complete range of static, dynamic and plyometric exercises. Plus, athletes or their trainers can instantly adjust settings with the user-friendly remote control, maximizing benefits without interruption to the workout. The optional travel case makes it easy to transport or store the pro5HP, so an elite-level workout is always nearby.
Engineered precisely to apply the body’s natural reflexive response to vibration, Power Plate technology uses a vibrating platform, which moves 25 to 50 times per second, resulting in corresponding muscle activation. The vibrations are harmonic, which are safe, consistent and controlled levels of vibration, moving in three directions (up and down, forwards and backwards and side to side).
Significant weight loss is often reported by those who use Power Plate regularly in conjunction with a healthy, calorie-controlled diet. One of the reasons for this is increased lymphatic flow and associated removal of biological waste, and retained fluid. Research shows, when used as part of an active lifestyle, Power Plate may have a significant impact upon the reduction of body fat. This may occur due to increases in metabolism both during and following exercise.
Many people who use Power Plate with no other exercise are happy with their results. We do advise users to also engage in some form of cardiovascular exercise. It is important to remember that Power Plate can be used in conjunction with many other forms of training and pieces of exercise equipment.
We advise everyone to contact their physician or specialist before using Power Plate and recommend they do not start training without first obtaining medical clearance to exercise. If you are currently active, cleared for exercise, and perform weight-bearing exercises, such as weight training or jogging, you are likely to be a good candidate for training on Power Plate. However, every person should be examined on an individual basis by a licensed medical practitioner. As with any form of exercise, if you feel faint, dizzy or ill while working out on Power Plate, you should cease your session immediately. Consult your doctor or specialist before restarting your training.
There are literally hundreds of thousands of Power Plate users across the world, who have been exercising on the device for many years. Such widespread use with no reported negative effects over an extended period demonstrates the safety of training on Power Plate. As with any form of exercise, there are certain preexisting medical conditions, which may make Power Plate an unsuitable option.
Power Plate is considered the market leader, with more than 15 years experience in whole body vibration training, products, and services. To ensure our products offer health and fitness benefits for a wide range of users, they have been developed by our research and product development team based on proven scientific findings regarding the effects of specific vibration exercise programs. Power Plate creates a mechanical stimulation, which ranges from 25Hz to 50Hz, chosen specifically because it is out of the range of the human body’s own resonance. Performance Health Systems is the only specialized company in its field to be a certified medical device manufacturer.
As with most forms of training, Power Plate will generate fatigue in the body. This fatigue is what stimulates the body to adapt and develop, but too much training results in excessive fatigue and over–training. As a very general guide we would suggest two to three training sessions per week, each lasting between 15 and 30 minutes and leaving 48 to 72 hours for recovery between sessions. We recommend you seek advice from a certified Power Plate trainer prior to your first session.
