TheraBand® Stability Trainers are oval-shaped, color-coded pads, supplied in three densities to provide a progressive system of balance training.
The green (firm) and blue (soft) TheraBand Stability Trainers are closed cell foam pads with an anti-slip ridged surface and oval foot fitting shape. The foam pads are effective for balance training in older adults, rehabilitation of lower extremities, and for sports performance enhancement.
Filled with air, the black (extra soft) TheraBand Stability Trainer provides advanced challenge compared to the green and blue Stability Trainers.
Made of durable PVC, the extra soft Stability Trainer’s heavy gauge side walls resist the tendency to roll the ankle during exercise. Additionally, it offers two options for use: one surface with rounded points providing tactile inputs for sensorimotor training; and the opposite surface with an anti-skid bars that resist slipping. This soft Stability Trainer can be used by healthcare professionals for balance and proprioception training for patients who have suffered ankle or knee injuries, core strength and stability training, ankle range of motion and flexibility training and sensorimotor training. Physical therapists, occupational therapists, athletic trainers, chiropractors, and personal trainers will all find this an invaluable addition to their activity programs.
Coupled with the firm (green) and soft (blue) foam stability trainers, TheraBand balance products offer an integrated, progressive system of instability and challenge, similar to other TheraBand products in color progression and activity levels.
