Think you have a tool that already does this?

 You may think so, but the answer is “no”.  The motion of the Core-Tex is patented and nothing else moves this way.  Imagine the reactive variability that the motion you see in this slow motion video is creating to improve function and performance.  So many benefits with so many options that best serve the client, patient or athlete.  Stand, sit, kneel, lay, hands on, feet on and side lying to get you started.  Then program the motion based on your objectives:

 ·         Emphasize one plane

·         React in all planes

·         Control the motion

·         Take advantage of 360 degrees of rotation

·         Maximize speed for metabolic benefits

·         Rhythmically oscillate for unbelievable mobility gains

·         And the list goes on…..

This may lead to a misinterpretation of Core-Tex being "too advanced" and a missed opportunity to scale your balance progressions in a way that allows the user to be successful.
Core-Tex plays well with others.  With the increased interest and research around dual tasking of cognitive exercises plus motor challenges, Core-Tex is emerging as a clinical favorite for many reasons:
