VT High Frequency Linear Vibration Plate (VT003F) offers a a great deep tissue vibration at the frequency rates between 15 and 40 Hz for therapeutic and fitness purposes. So you have the wide frequency range and two amplitude settings for different applications.
The natural frequency range of soft tissues is 10 to 50Hz and the VTT003 frequency range of 15-40Hz fits in there nicely. And this is how the resonance happens and the energy is efficiently driven into the soft tissue and you experience more muscle activation and enhanced blood circulation. We all respond differently to different frequencies and by finding your optimal frequency you’ll get the most out of this linear vibration plate.

The warranty offered is two years by the manufacturer and you can buy with confidence and have a peace of mind that you will get help if anything goes wrong at least within the first two years. Many other vibration platforms that you’ll find on the market have the swing type pivotal oscillation with a vibration frequency of less than 15Hz and without any amplitude adjustment setting.
If you are a beginner it is best that you start at lower frequencies or intensities and increase gradually as your body adjusts to the vibrations. Because a small percentage of people (2%) have experienced nausea or dizziness. If you feel any discomfort in your upper body you can use the vibration plate in the knee bent pose to be able to reduce the vibrations to your upper body.

You can find more information on a variety of topics and download a user manual via their website, Vibration Therapeutic.com. According to research, metabolism is improved and the bone density is increased with the high frequency vibrations. It has a rather sturdy construction with the ABS baseplate and footplate sitting on two steel tube frames that are connected by 4 springs to make up the skeleton.
The control panel box is located on the base plate and the DC motor and the eccentric wheels below the footplate. The motor rotation speed and direction that determine the amplitude and frequency are controlled by the micro-controller. You can adjust the frequency and the amplitude (low or high) via the control panel or the remote control provided. The default session time is 10 minutes and a session can be between 1 and 20 minutes. The three presets include P1 with low amplitude for detoxing and relaxation, P2 with high amplitude for a cardiovascular workout and P3 mix mode for toning and improving muscles. It is great value for money if you have the budget for a high frequency advanced vibration plate.
