Summary

The VibePlate is a low amplitude, lineal machine that has very large platform options for special use. It has an excellent low and high range of frequencies, but is restricted to only low amplitudes, and therefore low G forces. Overall, the Vibeplate is best suited to special uses where a large lineal platform can be of advantage, for example assisted walking with spinal cord injury and rehabilitation or yoga based training.

Performance

The Vibeplate scored a total of 56 points, giving it a pass on the Performance badge. The Vibeplate is a low amplitude lineal machine, which normally results in a fail on the Performance badge due to the low G force, however, the Vibeplate is an exception due to its use of both low and high frequency, plus extra large platform options. The frequency range is from 10 to 60Hz, which is displayed on the control panel. The Vibeplate has very large platform options for special use.

Company

Vibeplate scored 52 on the Company badge, giving them a narrow pass. Vibeplate do not advertise correct amplitude, and don’t advertise the G force at all. Vibeplate advertise incorrect information about the product (e.g. attribute benefits from high G machines), and incorrect information about the technology (e.g. suggest that research is rare, and G force not important).  Vibeplate design and manufacture their own machines, and have developed some innovative extras such as a stretch cage, and rails for rehab assistance. There is no charitable program advertised on the Vibeplate website, nor could we find any examples of this.
