You don't fool around with this car!
Hit the pedal at 3000rpm and it'll not only loosen people's dentures 100 yards around,
but knock off bra hooks off SYT's waiting at bus stops!!!"
The Power Plate.
A new way to shake off the pounds
Farah from the gym let me try this yesterday.
Stood on the machine in a squat position (like in a Maori haka) for 30 seconds and muscles contract 30 times a second, whole body I tell you!
I don't have dentures to loosen but bra hooks stayed on (well I'm not a Sweet Young Thing)!
Proceeded to do various other postions for a whole body work-out.
Ended with using it for massage.
Here's something from Time.com
According to Power Plate's manufacturers, if you stand on the machine's vibrating plates for 10 minutes a day three times a week, you will lose weight, increase bone density and improve your overall health. But is that really possible?
It might be. Unlike the old-fashioned belt exercisers that just shifted skin around, the Power Plate uses whole-body vibration, or WBV, to contract muscles 30 to 50 times per second. While you stand on the moving plates in the bent-knee position recommended for beginners, the continual vibration causes you to tense and relax your muscles to keep your balance. Even without the vibration, you would involuntarily tense and release just to hold the pose. But the WBV forces you to do so up to 50 times more. That's quite a workout for so little effort.
But to get the most out of the Power Plate, you can't just stand. The best approach is to perform the same exercises you would do on the floor—squats, tricep dips, push-ups and the like. Your muscles fatigue quicker, so the exercise routine will be shorter, but you're still not making the plates do all the work. "This is not a magic bullet that helps people lose weight without doing anything," says Cedric Bryant, chief exercise physiologist for the American Council on Exercise. "If you are a healthy individual, wbv training should be a supplement to a sensible diet and exercise program."
At RM100 per session, OUCCCH!
