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.
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.
The Vibeplate, has not been used in scientific research, therefore, the Vibeplate failed the Science badge.
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.
The Vibeplate scored 76 on the Warranty badge, it has a massive lifetime warranty year warranty on labour, parts and motor, giving a perfect 20 score, however, Vibeplate do not advertise a returns policy, so get zero points there. Vibeplate have good supply of spare parts, and ability to service equipment onsite.
Vibeplate has limited support, scoring 15 and thus failing the Support badge. No personal support, online training resources, or courses/workshops are available. The machine comes with a basic user manual only. Vibeplate have a business hours phone number and are active on social media.
