Power Plate My3 Vibration Therapy Machine
New research indicates one of the easiest and most effective ways for someone of any age or condition to increase muscle strength and build strong healthy bones is with "vibration therapy." Early studies using this special technology were done on military personnel and Olympic athletes in Russia. They used a special mechanical vibrating plate adjusted to exactly the right frequency so that when people stood on it, it caused the postural muscles to contract anywhere from 30 to 50 times a second. As the body ever so slightly shifts back and forth, muscles contract and relax with each shift. In just ten minutes, three times a week, standing on the plate, your muscles build up greater strength, stability and tone
Now, this revolutionary technology has been put into a device called the Power Plate My3 that you can use at home. You can use it in two ways: standing on it to get the muscle toning benefits of vibration therapy, or doing weight bearing exercises on it such as lunges, leg lifts, and pushups. These types of exercises gently pull on the tendons that link your muscles to your bones and stimulates your osteoblasts which are your "bone builders."
There's another benefit, too. Early research suggests that when you do exercises on a vibrating surface it may help increase muscle strength 20-30 percent more than conventional strength training while cutting overall training time. People who have used the unit offer very positive feedback. Even those who are in their 80's and used the Power Plate My3 have commented they were surprised by how easy it is to use.
It's safe ** and effective when use properly, and when it comes to increasing muscle strength and your overall physical health by helping your muscles, doing weight-bearing exercises and helping to build bone mass, all at the same time. The Power Plate My3 is an incredible invention based on well-researched, long-standing technology. Many feel there's no better way to help your muscles, or to do weight-bearing exercises that help build bone mass, all at the same time.

The Power Plate My3 is one of the easiest ways known for someone of any age or condition to increase muscle strength and overall strength - and by doing resistance exercises on it, you can also help build strong, healthy bones.
Using the Power Plate My3 gives your muscles a tremendous workout, and may help to increase blood flow throughout your body. And when you do resistance exercises on the Power Plate My3, it may help build bone mass.
The original Power Plate was created by Dutch Olympic Coach Guus van der Meer who was looking for a way to improve conditioning and performance of elite athletes. It’s won an innovation award at FIBO 2002, the world’s largest fair for fitness equipment. And in 2005 it received the Fitness Tribune of Switzerland’s “Anti-Aging Machine of the Year Award.” They recently developed Power Plate My3 to give you the same benefits at home.
The Power Plate My3 measures 25” x 15” at the base. The entire unit weighs 193 pounds. The maximum load is 385 pounds. It plugs into any standard 110 volt outlet and uses just .8kW (which is nominal power).
You can use the Power Plate My3 for:
The Power Plate My3 is like having 4 exercise machines in 1. And, you may start to get the benefits in just 8 to 10 minutes. It’s perfect for people who have limited time to exercise, or have difficulty with free weights. Plus, you only need to use it three days a week.
The Power Plate MY3 Exercise Machine is the premium whole body vibration exercise machine produced for home use. It utilizes whole body vibration and the principles of Acceleration Training to help consumers achieve higher success in their workouts in shorter amounts of time. The vibrations that are produced using the Power Plate Exercise Machine My3 transmit waves of energy throughout the body, activating muscle contractions between 25 and 50 times per second. By doing this the Power Plate enhances overall performance in sessions as short as 15 minutes a day, 3 times a week.
Acceleration Training using whole body vibration on Power Plate equipment offers a host of benefits, ranging from an immediate improvement in blood circulation, to a variety of other outcomes: such as increased muscle strength and flexibility, improved range of motion, decreased cellulite, increased bone mineral density, reduced pain and soreness and faster recovery times.
- What is Power Plate? Power Plate Equipment is the premium vibration device powering a new dimension in wellness solutions for all ages, lifestyles and physical abilities. It uses the principles of Acceleration Training and Whole Body Vibration to stimulate the body's natural response to movement. These vibrations transmit waves of energy throughout the body, activating muscle contractions.
- How can Power Plate's Acceleration Training assist in rehabilitation? Not only can Acceleration Training exercise using Power Plate Machines prevent injuries, it can help rehabilitate them as well. Many professional sports teams have found Power Plate machines to be indispensable for rehabilitation. While playing for the Phoenix Suns, Shaquille O'Neal used the Power Plate to recover from surgery during the 2002-2003 NBA Basketball season, and the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants use it to keep their players on the field and out of the training room.
The ability to strengthen muscles with the PowerPlate without strain on joints and ligaments can be extremely valuable for patients with rehabilitation needs. Increased blood circulation helps bring oxygen to inflamed areas to promote healing, while improved lymphatic flow helps drain fluid.
** Warning: Consult your health care professional prior to using if you’re pregnant, have cardiovascular disease, a pacemaker, hip or knee replacements, diabetes, epilepsy, tumors, migraine, acute hernia, recently replaced pins or plates, recent infections, or recent surgeries. It is recommended that shoes with flexible rubber soles be worn when on the Power Plate My3.
