A New Approach to Exercise
The Power Plate offers a form of exercise that uses the principle of whole body vibration training to help improve sports performance, enhance fitness and wellness and even accelerate recovery from injury. This may appear like a new fad but the concept has in fact been around for over 30 years with practical and scientific research to back it up.
What is Whole Body Vibration?
Though this sounds like a new technology the use of vibration is an idea that dates back to the ancient Greeks who used it to help heal injuries. The concept of whole body vibration is based on Rhythmic Neuromuscular Stimulation dating back to the 1960s when a professor from the former East German Republic described cyclical vibrations capable of improving the condition of the joints relatively quickly.
The Russian Space Program used whole body vibrations to allows its cosmonauts to stay in space longer without experiencing adverse reaction. Later ballet dancers with minor muscle injuries such as achilles tendon problems discovered that vibrations aided the healing process. They also found that their muscular strength and jump height increased with only a quarter of the effort or time required by traditional training methods. This led many of Russia’s top Olympic athletes to incorporate whole body vibrations into their programmes.
