Power Plate® machines embody a non-invasive exercise therapy-based modality for prevention, recovery, and rehabilitation that positively impacts patients from the first day of use, providing a multitude of benefits for users of diverse ages and physical conditions. Based upon proven Advanced Vibration Technology™, Power Plate® therapy addresses a broad range of debilitating symptoms and speeds recovery time, allowing patients to more quickly resume their normal daily functions. The use of Power Plate® machines is safe and effective, leading to an improved quality of life.

 

 


 

A New Path for Neuromuscular Rehabilitation
The vibrations caused by Power Plate® machines provoke changes in the muscle, which stimulate sensory receptors, most likely muscle spindles, eliciting the 'tonic vibration reflex.' During operation, the Power Plate's® recruitment threshold of the motor units is lower compared to the threshold during voluntary contractions. More importantly, involuntary contractions occur in response to the vibration. Therefore, patients with limited mobility can benefit as much as more agile patients.

 

Healthcare professionals have successfully used Power Plate® machines to manage a variety of disease states, including:

  • Idiopathic peripheral neuropathy
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
