The Power Plate my5 is a Triplanar machine and Triplanar machines are typically used in commercial settings because they are extremely robust and can be continuously run. There are less moving parts compared to that of oscillation vibration and are usually more reliable. Triplanar machine delivers higher frequency settings (vibrations per second) at a lower amplitude (vertical movement) and can provide an acceleration in excess of 10 Gs. Higher frequency forces your muscles and tissues to contract and relax extremely quickly, tiring them and “ripping” them as you would when you hit the gym pumping weights. Your body will heal and your muscles will become stronger and leaner. It is excellent if you want to use it as a weight loss equipment–and its a very good reason why these machines are typically found in fitness venues. However, because of the lower amplitude, it is not as effective, compared to oscillation or sonic vibration for stimulating the lymphatic system and clearing blockages, increasing blood circulation and blood flow, or pain reduction.
The motion is much faster then oscillation and is more of a high speed vibration. The vertical displacement (movement) is smaller. These vibration machines are usually found in fitness facilities and strength training gyms and are used by professional sports teams. Designed for users primarily focusing on building muscle strength and muscle tone and especially improving their bone density.
