Proprioception is the body's ability to know where a joint is positioned without having to look at it. Proprioception is important for ankle and knee injury prevention because it improves the ability of the neuromuscular system to make fine alterations to movements during sports that can prevent a twisted ankle or twisted knee. Physiotherapy exercises always incorporate proprioception exercises, especially during sprained ankle or knee ligament injury rehabilitation.

Wobble Boards

Balance Boards & Wobble Boards allow balance and proprioception improvement because they force the user to make continual adjustments in order to keep the board steady. A balance or wobble board is a disc with a rounded bottom that provides a challenging surface to balance on. These boards can also be used to help increase ankle range of motion following a sprained ankle injury. The PhysioRoom range of Wobble Boards are designed to improve your levels of balance, posture, flexibility, strength and concentration. Wobble Boards and cushions present an uneven surface that requires complete steadiness to stand and sit on. This makes them ideal during rehab from injuries, such as ligament injuries like sprained ankles or an ACL Knee injury. They can also be used to strengthen core muscles and to add a greater challenge to normal exercises.

Balance Boards and Wobble Boards for Rehab and Exercise

Our 40cm Wooden Wobble Board has been specially designed as an aid to help you regain your balance as well as restoring your stability following an ankle or knee injury. With a tilt angle of 13 degrees, the wooden wobble board provides an essential tool in the rehabilitation of sports injuries such as sprained ankles, knee ligament injuries, cartilage injuries or following knee or ankle surgery. The circular design of the exercise balance board allows movement through 360 degrees of motion, which helps to improve joint motion and challenges your body's ability to perform complex movements. We also have the 33cm Balance Wobble Board which allows for progression through the early to intermediate stages of rehabilitation. The ability to extend the height of the board enables the user to gradually increase the 'wobble' of the board, building both confidence and the ability to take on more challenging exercises.

Wobble Cushions

Wobble cushions are frequently used by physiotherapists, physical therapists and sports therapists in the treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries such as a sprained ankle and following knee or ankle surgery. A wobble cushion is filled with air to provide a challenging surface to balance on. A good use for the cushions is to improve proprioception, the body's ability to know where a joint is positioned without having to look at it, which is important for the prevention of knee and ankle injuries.

They are also particularly useful as a cushion to sit on to improve posture via 'active sitting'. Sitting on a wobble cushion creates an unstable surface to sit on which requires your core to stabilise itself at all times, therefore strengthening the core muscle. This added need for balance encourages the postural muscles to be activated; This allows your muscles to stay strong and activated to better meet the demands imposed on them in our day to day lives. Making you less likely to feel stiff and creaky every time you stand up after a long spell sitting at your desk.

ADHD Benefits of Wobble Cushions

Playful to look at and functional at the same time, wobble cushions can be used to encourage 'active sitting' for kids. When used as a seating aid for children, wobble cushions can improve concentration and prevent fidgeting caused by ADHD. Active sitting by its nature is friendly towards fidgeting making it a good way of channelling excess energy in to productive activities. It acknowledges a child's need to move, but simultaneously keeps them sitting still enough so teachers and other students can keep going as normal. A 2008 National Education Association article featured a research study that found children need to move while performing a complicated mental task to help improve focus. The study also found that "children, especially those with ADHD fidgeted more when a task required them to store and process information rather than just hold it". This is why students are often restless while doing school work such as maths or reading, but not while watching a TV or a movie.

Wobble Cushions for Injury Rehab

The PhysioRoom Air Stability Wobble Balance Cushion can be used as a balance and wobble cushion to aid ankle stability and balance, or as a seating cushion to improve posture. We also have a unique and versatile fitness tool used to build strength, provide cardio workouts and improve balance. The PhysioRoom Balance Trainer is designed for use dome or platform side down, requiring balance and stabilisation to challenge the cardiovascular system and increase muscle strength and flexibility. It offers a dynamic surface that you can stand, sit, kneel or lay on to challenge your whole body.
