If you have heard about Powerplate then you will know what the Physioplate is all about. Both these machines are used to provide Whole Body Vibration Therapy (WBVT).

WBVT has been around for a long time and was first invented by NASA in order to decrease the loss of bone density and muscle wasting in astronauts. It has since been proven by various studies to improve muscle strength, co-ordination, balance, bone density, blood circulation and much more.
The biggest draw card is that it is a quick, effective and safe way of exercising.
A quick note of caution: this type of training is another method of resistance training that is safe on joints, but it does not replace cardiovascular exercise.

Who can benefit? If you are just starting your training program or weight losss program or you want to improve your athletic ability this is for you. If you are recovering after an injury or had joint surgery this could help your recovery (please check with your surgeon first).
