We offer balancing pads of different brands, colors and sizes and type of execution. The balance pad "Bosu" or AirStep pad has recently become very popular.
Balance exercises and aids
Balance exercises are understood as exercises on unstable surfaces. Exercise on these unstable devices results in equilibrium responses that force concentration
on a certain movement. This leads to greater involvement of the central nervous system. It leads to improvement of balance and development of coordination of movements. The balance depends on
1. Passive system (bones, joints and intervertebral discs)
2. Active system (muscles directly affecting the spine)
3. Nervous system (functioning of receptors and central nervous system)
We divide the balance into static, dynamic and balancing. Static balance is the ability to keep the body in a labile position without moving. Dynamic equilibrium, on the other hand, is the ability to move in an unstable position. Balance is understood as maintaining stability on a shaky exercise aid or keeping an object in an unstable position. Such an object balancing ability can be applied in several sports such as pole vault and in modern gymnastics with hoop or ball exercises.
Stability of the spine is important for ideal distribution of strength requirements between muscle groups, small deep and large superficial to avoid overloading some muscles.
