Explored and developed widely as a beneficial addition to human exercising and health regimes, the transition of whole-body vibrations into the equestrian industry is still reasonably new but has already been proven to assist with rehabilitation and the well being of horses.
How does our Horse Power Plate work?
Typically running between 15Hz to 60Hz and created by motors underneath the platform, the vibrations flow through the feet to reach the whole body, triggering a natural reaction within the muscles. This makes the muscles involuntarily contract and relax 30 to 50 times per second, depending on the frequency the machine is set at. Due to this stretch-reflex contraction, more muscle fibres are used than in a conscious, voluntary movement. The repetitive action tires out the muscle and as it recovers it strengthens to withstand the increased effort. The whole-body vibration stimulates blood circulation through the entire body and this increased blood flow improves oxygenation of the tissues. By doing so it helps with the removal of toxins and metabolic waste, thus enhancing the body’s ability to heal itself.

Whole Body Vibrations (WBV) can also be referred to as vibration training, vibration therapy, biomechanical stimulation (BMS) or biomechanical oscillation (BMO). It is a training method employing low amplitude, low-frequency mechanical stimulation to exercise musculoskeletal structures for the improvement of muscle strength, power, and flexibility.
