One Response to Brands Overview

    I don’t see any info on the VibroGym product, which first developed
    a machine for PowerPlate until Power Plate decided to have their
    product manufactured in China for lower costs, although they did not
    lower their prices. Power Plate has always had a huge advertising
    program, so it is no wonder they are well known in the industry. Who do you think makes a superior product at much less cost?
