Commercial Vibration Plates
Quickly becoming a hugely popular machine in the fitness world, vibration training machines are featured in gyms across the globe. A particular favourite of athletes, vibration training machines, like the Power Plate, are ideal for adding extra instability and intensity to standard free-weight and body weight exercises, or for assisting in your workout warm up or cool down.
Vibration Plate Types
There are four forms of commercial vibration plate technology: crank, motor, see-saw and linkage. Crank and motor are the most common first generation technology and have an up and down and lateral movement. The see-saw has a rocking movement and the linkage has a purely vertical movement. The linkage system is the next generation technology. It is recognised that the vertical movement is the most efficient and effective due to the energy transfer through the vertical plane.
