Types of Vibration
VibePlate and Power Plate each have different types of vibration for their whole-body vibration machines.
Power Plate has technology known as PrecisionWave Technology. The Power Plate does not simply just vibrate up and down but actually vibrates in multiple directions also known as Tri-Planar vibration. So it goes up/down, left/right, and forwards/backward.
VibePlate has a lineal platform that remains horizontal and the entire platform moves up and down. There are no other movements such as left/right or forwards/backward. This vertical movement makes VibePlate a stable, stationary vibration platform.
Frequency/Hertz is the number of times the platform completes 1 cycle of movement per second. The higher the frequency, the faster the machine vibrates per second. This is different from the speed setting of the machine.
VibePlate — Every VibePlate has variable speeds ranging from 10 to 60 Hz. Unlike many other exercises, different speeds are used for the joints and muscles. For example, low levels have been proven to help increase lymphatic drainage while higher ranges can reduce joint pain or enhance muscle strength.
Power Plate — The Personal Power Plate has a fixed frequency of 35 Hz that includes 30 or 60-second timers that you can use. The Power Plate Move has 6 different options with (30Hz Low / 30Hz High) (35 Hz Low / 35 Hz High) (40Hz Low / 40Hz High) with time selections of 0-9 minutes and also the 30 or 60-second timer as well.
