The Power Plate exercise equipment employs the body's natural response to vibrations to achieve strength and tone building in the body's muscles. The Power Plate's standing platform sends vibrations that make the body feel unstable and causes the body's muscles to tense and relax to maintain balance. The Power Plate has stabilising handlebars for quick support. However, the Power Plate is most effective when you keep your knees over your toes to maintain balance. You should not lock your joint, lean on your heels or pull on the handlebars to maintain your balance.
