Advanced Vibration Technology for Amazing Fitness
Power Plate™ Technology
Benchmark Medical Group offers a cutting edge physical fitness and physical therapy programs comprised of Power Plate™ Technology, and a licensed physical therapist. We know that structure dictates function, and strengthening is imperative to stabilize the body, promoting stronger muscles and preventing re-injury. The Power Plate™ is a rehabilitation phenomena supported by extensive research, and leads the industry in three-dimensional Advanced Vibration Technology™.
It uses the principles of Acceleration Training™ to stimulate the body’s natural response to vibration, while transmitting waves of energy at safe levels throughout the body activating muscle contractions between 25 and 50 times per second. Acceleration Training with Power Plate™ machines creates instability in the human body, as with each vibration the body is forced to perform reflexive muscle actions, multiple times per second. Furthermore, these contractions must work in multiple dimensions oscillating in all three planes, exactly as the human body is designed to do. The net result is an incredible improvement in force production, or strength and power.
Benefits include immediate improvement in blood circulation to measurable outcomes such as increased muscle strength and flexibility, decreased cellulite, reduced pain, and faster recovery. It also allows people with conditions such as osteoporosis, multiple sclerosis and arthritis to exercise while working within their physical limitations.
Vibrations stimulate the muscle-pump-effect and cause an increase in blood-flow with an improvement of transport capacity for:
Oxygen / Carbon dioxide
Vitality components (micro nutrients)
Energy components (macro nutrients)
“10 minutes of the Power Plate™ is equivalent to 60 minutes of conventional training.” This explains why many celebrities, pro-athletes and pro athletic teams own and train with the Power Plate™, including some of the best team and athletes in the world in 2011.
Power Plate™ Exercise and Weight Loss, A Winning Duo
The Power Plate™ can be used for numerous applications from rehabilitation of injuries and post surgical rehabilitation to improving strength, endurance and weight loss. A 25% reduction in cellulite, 16% improvement in vertical jump and a 350% increase in natural human growth hormone-(hGh) are only a few of the incredible changes the Power Plate™ can initiate! This is a true revolution in rehabilitation and physical therapy! Exercising on the Power Plate™ aids in weight loss and is vital to stopping the revolving door of pain. Motion signals in the body block pain signals, and pain decreases with movement. Exercise and the Power Plate™ help strengthen the body and enable the healing process. Great posture begins with strong legs and core muscles, and nothing will improve these muscles like the Power Plate™.
2-3 classes per week are recommended for optimal results.
