Airex Balance Pads are used by physical therapists to challenge a patent's propriception with either their eyes open or their eyes closed. The AIREX Balance products are active therapy and training devices made of the familiar soft AIREX foam material. The Balance Pad with its smooth surface is ideal for starting out with barefoot balance training. The thickness of 6 cm gives the Balance Pad the desired destabilizing characteristics. Due to the yielding foam, the body is constantly challenged in order to maintain balance and stabilize the joints. This exercises more and deeper muscles compared to performing the same exercises without the Balance Pad. Training with the Balance Pad can purposefully improve conditional and coordinative abilities in combination, for example strength, endurance, differentiation and balance. Due to the comfortable, smooth surface, the Balance Pad is not entirely slip-resistant on smooth floors. We therefore recommend an AIREX mat underneath as the ideal complement.
