Packaged in a set of four colored squares, each plate is 4 inches long with a distinctive base to vary the type and level of exercise performed.
Used in pairs, up to 25 exercise combinations can be performed
Black : Full stability : 2 full cylinders placed at the sides of the square
Red and Blue : Medium instability : 2 half cylinders placed in the center of the square
White : Full instability : an half ball shape placed in the center of the square
The ankle, or the talocrural region, is the region where the foot and the leg meet.
In motion, the foot orients obliquely from top to bottom, from inside to outside and from front to back around the transverse axis of the talocrural joint. It is not a pure movement at the level of the hindfoot, but rather a combination of two complex movements that cross the three anatomical planes of the body:
-Inversion: combination of plantar flexion, supination and adduction
-Eversion: combination of dorsal flexion, pronation and abduction
When exercising on the Ankle Foot Exerciser, People report it is more difficult to find balance than on any Balance board. Why? Because muscle soreness occurs specifically on the ankle’s muscles. On other devices, muscular reaction is not the same, muscle soreness occurs on the whole low part of the body.Targeting specifically on the ankle’s muscles:
There are different degrees of sprain, sometimes we twist our foot without realizing it, which creates micro damage to the ligament. These mini sprains not being treated give risks of recurrence. Chronic instability with episodes of repeated sprains and whose triggering factors are less and less frank, threatens anyone who has already had a serious ligament tear. The recidivism rate is 80%!
A torn ligament regains its continuity after 6 weeks... but it is only solid after 6 months! Throughout this period, recidivism threatens! During this period, the ankle is not at 100% of these abilities, it is vulnerable.
Continuous self-rehabilitation with Ankle Foot Exerciser is the essential weapon to fight against chronic ankle instability and thus minimize the risk of relapse!
No excuses: when you're on the go, the 4 squares are so small that they fit in any (sport) bag!
Strong feet supporting stablised ankles are the foundations tip-top shape
As we progress in life, we start sitting more and walking less (man since his creation has always walked, our grands parents without car walked 3 times more), eventually losing motion and strength. The foot is our base of support and distribute upward and downward force through our body. If the foot is weak, stuck or out of alignment, it leads to an uneven distribution causing ankle pain, back pain, bulged discs, sciatica, hip pain, and knee pain. If we strengthen, realign, and stabilize our ankles, we can change everything.
Simple, fast and effective, the Ankle Foot Exerciser will get you back into the game of life. With regular use, we can keep our whole body in good posture, and pain free to live to the fullest.
