PHYSICAL THERAPY AT HOME: the box contains a printed 18 pages exercise guide with detailed instructions, developed by a physical therapist specifically for the needs of the elderly. This means that all the exercises are low impact and gentle: safe to do even for absolute beginners and perfect for home physiotherapy! Also, since most of the exercises target the upper body, they can also be done if you're in a wheelchair.
PERFECT SIZE FOR EXERCISES: the 9 inches (approx. 23 cm) ball is made of soft, low-odor, flexible, durable PVC (not rubber, therefore is suitable for people with a latex allergy). It is designed to remain elastic and squishy when inflated, so you can squeeze it in your hands during exercises. Also, when you are not exercising you can use the inflatable ball to provide lower back and lumbar support when sitting.
EASY TO USE - VIDEO EXERCISES INCLUDED: the box contains both a small hand pump and a straw- you can use whatever you prefer to inflate the ball. When you want to deflate it, simply use the plug remover provided to remove the plug. After purchasing the product you will receive an email with links to see all the video exercises: you can use the videos together with the written instructions in the booklet to make sure you're doing the exercises right.
MULTIPLE USES: the mini ball is perfect for doing physical therapy or rehab exercises at home. You can use it if you're suffering from hip, knee or sciatica issues, lit will help in stroke rehabilitation or recovery after surgery. The ball is also great for Pilates, yoga or barre - work at your own pace, in the privacy of your home, as you would with a chair gym!
PERFECT GIFT IDEA FOR GRANDPARENTS OR ELDERLY PARENTS: maintaining senior wellness is an important part of the healthy aging process and physical exercises play an important role. Done regularly, exercises prevent heart diseases, diabetes or osteoporosis, improve balance and stability and can also reduce pain associated with arthritis, sciatica or back pain. And this ball makes regular exercises so much easier!
