Gray Institute adds Power Plate Vibration Training and certification into educational program

Gray Institute adds Power Plate Vibration Training and certification into educational program
August 27, 2015

Performance Health Systems has announced a partnership that will incorporate Power Plate® advanced whole body vibration and Power Plate training certifications within The Gray Institute® education program.

As the global leader in whole body vibration technology, Power Plate redefines optimal health and wellness equipment for every age and ability, a proposition recognised by the Gray Institute, the world’s foremost authority of Applied Functional Science®.

The Gray Institute delivers this information and education in a variety of formats, including a video library, exercise library, live events, certifications, mentorship program, online modules, DVDs and other functional products and equipment.

Dr Gary Gray, Chief Executive and founder of the world-renown Gray Institute explains “as far as we’re concerned, the Power Plate is one of the most unique and powerful environments we can utilise for our patients and clients to enhance their function.”

Dr Rich Colosi, Senior Director of Medical Specialties and Education for Performance Health Systems adds “this partnership aligns perfectly with Power Plate’s educational pathways.

“Similar to the Gray Institute’s educational goals, Power Plate strives to educate and enhance the quality of life for others through movement.

“Power Plate provides the vehicle of whole body vibration to replicate an authentic environment taking movement to the next level.”

Engineered to apply the science behind a body’s ability to respond to changes in the natural environment, Power Plate’s vibrating platform triggers rapid reflexive muscle contractions through our proprioceptors. This activation helps to improve functional performance, gait and locomotion, balance, range of motion, circulation and stability by amplifying the effects of any exercise or movement performed on the equipment. Power Plate's vibrating surface vibrates 25-50 times per second, resulting in corresponding muscle activation.

This means users can accelerate acquisition and retention of skills associated with movement at a rapid rate.

Power Plate can also be found at thousands of health clubs, wellness facilities and spas, and is used by therapists and doctors worldwide to address symptoms associated with physical limitations in muscular skeletal dysfunction. Hundreds of professional, collegiate and national sports teams rely on Power Plate to help their athletes to prepare, condition and recover to be able to perform their best.
