Power Plate Training Useful After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

Power Plate Training Improves Proprioception and Balance More Than Conventional Training in Athletes Who Have Undergone ACL Reconstruction.

Whole Body Vibration Enhances Recovery After ACL Reconstruction

Whole Body Vibration Expedites and Improves Recovery of Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Rupture and Subsequent Arthroscopic Reconstructive Surgery.

Regular Massage on a Power Plate Can Help Improve Circulation

Research from Loma Linda University (USA) Shows that Massage Exercises on a Power Plate Can Help Improve Skin Blood Flow

Precision: Why Medical and Sports- Performance Professionals Prefer Power Plate

When the body makes a neurological change in motor learning/skill development, precise repetition is required and with whole body vibration, vibration precision is key to effectiveness.

Power Plate and the Treatment of Pre-hypertension and Hypertension

Whole body vibration improves heart function, helping treat pre-hypertension and hypertension.

Effect of long-term Whole Body Vibration Training on Visceral Adipose Tissue

This study shows that Whole Body Vibration training may have the potential to reduce Visceral Adipose Tissue more than aerobic exercise in obese adults, possibly making it a meaningful addition to future weight loss programs.

The effects of whole-body vibration on muscle strength and power: a meta-analysis

This review article concluded that adding whole body vibration to an exercise program caused greater improvements in muscle strength and countermovement jump performance.

Whole-body vibration improves walking function in individuals with spinal cord injury: a pilot study.

This pilot study of spinal cord injured people showed significantly improved walking speed, cadence and step length with whole body vibration. These effects may persist for some time following whole body vibration use.

Single-dose effects of whole body vibration on quadriceps strength in individuals with motor-incomplete spinal cord injury

This blinded, randomized controlled trial of 25 people examined the effects of a single session of whole body vibration in motor incomplete spinal cord injury. The results suggest that even a single session of whole body vibration can result in short term increases in strength.

Effect of whole-body vibration on quadriceps spasticity in individuals with spastic hypertonia due to spinal cord injury.

This study examined the effects of whole body vibration on spasticity in spinal cord injury. Improvements in spasticity was noted following treatment and the effects persisted for at least eight days.

Effects of vibration on spasticity in individuals with spinal cord injury: a scoping systematic review.

Whole body vibration resulted in a decrease in spasticity in lasting 6-8 days after the last vibration session

The effects of random whole-body-vibration on motor symptoms in Parkinson's disease.

This crossover study of 68 Parkinson’s patients examined the effect of whole body vibration on motor symptoms. There was a highly significant improvement in motor scores with whole body vibration treatment, with improvement in tremor and rigidity scores.

Whole Body Vibration Exercise Protocol versus a Standard Exercise Protocol after ACL Reconstruction: A Clinical Randomized Controlled Trial with Short Term Follow-Up.

A randomized controlled study of 40 patients following ACL reconstruction with one group using whole body vibration and another using traditional post operative exercise showed no difference in outcomes despite a 50% reduction in time spent exercising with whole body vibration, suggesting a significantly more efficient training approach with whole body vibration. In addition, the whole body vibration group showed significantly better results in the stability test.

The effectiveness of proprioceptive training for improving motor function: a systematic review

This review examined different forms of proprioceptive training. Improvements associated with vibration are noted.
