I'm not 100% sure what the Powerplate is supposed to do, all I am able to find on it is that it uses vibration technology to help build muscle. Is that the one you are referring to?
If it is, then the machine won't really work very effectively. It's not unhealthy, it's just not going to work because you can't burn off fat and build muscle by allowing the body to vibrate - just doesn't work that way. So there are no long term side effects, because there are very few effects! The only way to build muscle or to lose weight is to do regular exercise like cardio training (running, walking, cycling, taebo) or to get into a gym and lift weights.
