Please consult with a licensed physical therapist or medical professional before beginning any rehabilitative program. Each injury is unique and we are unable to offer any advice without a full medical assessment. For all physical therapy exercises, we recommend pairing StrongBoard MINI with a licensed physical therapist for the recovery of many injuries. Please use all healing modalities responsibly.
1) Place StrongBoard against the wall with the short side on the floor.
2) Lie on your back and place one leg on the middle on the StrongBoard to hold board in place against the wall.
3) Place the opposite heel on the top lipped edge of the board.
4) The top leg will be the working leg.
5) The top foot is positioned slightly outward in the 11 or 1 o'clock position with the knee bent approximately 30-45 degrees.
6) Then the top knee presses in the board to full extension without locking the knee.
7) Slowly bring knee back to the flexed position.
In most instances of physical therapy, wherein a person is rehabilitating an injury or strengthening a weakness, we recommend StrongBoard MINI. StrongBoard MINI functions exactly the same as StrongBoard Balance board, and offers all of the same diversity, challenges and neurological stimulation, with one exception. Its springs are 2” shorter making it less reactive, and bringing the platform closer to the ground. Perfect for at-risk seniors, anyone living with a motor skill or neurological disorder such as Parkinson’s Disease, Cerebral Palsy or Ataxia, anyone on the Autism Spectrum, persons working with ADHD, recovering from stroke, or rehabilitating an injury, StrongBoard MINI is the go-to tool for gains in treatment and healing. It is also an excellent alternative physical therapy aid for those individuals who require creative ways to remain strong after experiencing an above-the-elbow (AE) trans humoral, above- the-knee (AK) trans femoral surgery or Amelia. StrongBoard Balance boards have also been utilized by individuals who look to the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association (AOPA) for innovation and advancement in strength training.
