Take Any Static Exercise and Make it Dynamic on Core-Tex™
The Core-Tex™ is the only device on the market that allows for movement in all three planes of motion AND whose base translates at the same time. All other devices either work in all three planes on a fixed axis with no translation OR translate in only one plane (typically the frontal plane). The patented design of the Core-Tex™ allows the base to move like no other training environment. This allows for an almost infinite number of combination movements while working on the Core-Tex™.
The Core-Tex™ encourages movement and change of direction to maximize the integration of the body’s receptors from the foot and ankle all the way up to neck, eyes and inner ears. This causes the body to react and respond just as is required with real world activities and sports.
If the user is standing on the Core-Tex™ (with or without the handrail) and performing an upper body exercise, each and every repetition will change the joint angle and the muscular recruitment. For example, doing a bicep curl while standing will create a weight shift and therefore motion of the Core-Tex™ platform. As the base tilts, translates and rotates, the lower extremities react, create motion at the hips and pelvis, the thoracic spine laterally flexes and rotates and the shoulder girdle position has changed-effecting each and every repetition differently. The loads lifted will not be as much as on solid ground, but the muscular recruitment will be much more varied.
The applications of the Core-Tex™ are exciting and the benefits exponential over other devices. Anything that you can do on another form of balance equipment, you can do on the Core-Tex™ with superior results.
