Originally designed for Russian astronauts to improve the negative effects of zero gravity, Vibration Therapy on the Power Plate is now used for a wide variety of therapeutic benefits. It is proven to increase bone density and improve core stability as well as increase circulation, proprioception, fat burning and co-ordination. It can be used as an adjunct to training or specifically for re-training after injury.
