Core-Tex™

By dictating the user position on the platform, you can target specific motions of the lumber spine and the lower thoracic spine that will improve motion and stability.  These lower threshold moves are excellent for the patient or athlete currently experiencing lower back pain.  The subtle, fluid motions of the platform can reduce the threat and encourage safe motion. The user can perform completely independently of the therapist or trainer, allowing for ongoing motor learning and movement confidence. 

This is a blast from the past.  Derrick Price, our first Core-Tex Master Trainer, international educator and industry leader shares with you 25 plank variations and progressions using the original Core-Tex.  

Take the tired old plank and see how adding reactive variability using the Core-Tex motion changes the game.

Derrick takes you through multiple levels with the help of his clients of varying abilities. Core-Tex core work can go from remedial to the most advanced all the while challenging the neuromusculoskeletal system with variability not created with any other environment.  

We have the honor of sharing with you some hip rehab applications sent to us by physical therapist Bryce Taylor.  Bryce shares with us:

"I have a unique opportunity to capture overhead views at my clinic and for the Core-Tex, this makes sense.  I've been working with this gentleman for several hip-related cases to restore functional mobility and return him to competitive distance running.  He has had surgeries for labral tears and hip impingement.  In this case, the Core-Tex has aided in self-administered and guided multi-planar end range of motion of the hip and lower kinetic chain.  I like that they can freely explore within the limits of their own subjective boundaries and that, I believe, can have more impact than passive motion."

This 30 second combo of mountain climbers, push-ups and wrestler spins is a great way to keep members and coaches engaged and challenges the decision making and neuromuscular reaction of the participants.  Try it and see how fast the heart rate climbs!

A traditional yoga flow can be progressed by using the Core-Tex platform to introduce some reactive variability to the body. Using the handrail for added stability-the tilt, slide and translation of Core-Tex can create an entirely novel user experience.

By introducing the transverse plane alone to these moves, the body's muscles, joints and righting reflexes are challenged in ways unique to the Core-Tex experience. 
This is another great example of how the environment created by Core-Tex can be applied to an incredible number of fitness and rehabilitative objectives. 
Take this familiar arm position we use on the wall to mobilize the thoracic spine, add the patented motion of Core-Tex and you have a very unique and effective way to enhance scapular motion.  This is also a great move to help mobilize the tissue inferior to the posterior shoulder joint.  

Here are four moves that you can do only with Core-Tex that can lengthen and load the soft tissue around the groin to rehab or prehab that area. Create the pre-stretch, and then introduce the multiple vectors that challenge and prepare the tissue for unpredictable stresses.

Allow the Core-Tex to guide your patient or athlete to what their tissue needs.  Teach them to do and free up your time!

Using the new Core-Tex Dual, we demonstrate how you can access lateral spinal flexion using the motion of the Core-Tex and the anchor options for the hands on both sides of the platform. The supine, unloaded position and reactivity of the platform allow you to access different segments of the spine during motion.

Choose to keep the motion dynamic, or hold for longer intervals with the upper body anchored and drive the motion to the same side repeatedly by driving rotation with the legs. 

Try some of these demanding metabolic Core-Tex drills to your workout and see how adding some reactive training can provide an entirely new dimension to your training.
This is an amazing glute training exercise.  This move targets the posterior hip in a completely different way with an emphasis on the actions of the glutes neglected by most traditional exercises.  The patented motion of Core-Tex provides the environment to challenge these frontal and transverse plane motions while introducing a positive stress to the knee joint.
In this concise video, Core-Tex inventor Anthony Carey shares why reactive training and reactive variability is a critical component of movement training for people of all levels and abilities.
