Godsend for my standing desk
I’ve been a standing desk user for ~ 2 years. I always prefer standing but my feet used to get really sore, even when using an anti-fatigue mat. I also hate wearing shoes all the time and have a liberal workplace where socks / bare feet are acceptable. In all my two years, this has been my best purchase yet. No more sore feet and I’m also more active being able to comfortably shift my weight around to different stances not possible on a flat floor. Highly recommended.
I need this
I have this in front of my bed. I need this to step on before I step on the hard floor after getting out of bed. I don’t recommend this for everyone. If you have good balance, but a bad back, knees or painful feet, stepping on this before the floor when getting out of bed before gravity brings everything down to your feet will mean a world of difference to that first and second step towards the bathroom. I’m getting the longer version next.
Just What I Needed
This pad does just what I need for physical therapy. I bought this one because it’s exactly the height and type I use at PT sessions. The height is forcing me to get a recalcitrant leg to lift higher than it’s been happy with; it’s made the difference in my being able to get my foot over the shower stall rail without a struggle. At my last session the therapist had me use it for balance and movement purposes, and it’s obvious that it works for that, too. Included with the pad was a large sheet with pictures and instructions for various exercises. Some were more for fitness than rehabilitation, so I don’t plan to tackle them, but it seems to be a versatile product.
I have used this pad for years at the gym and with my trainer. It’s so good that I decided to purchase one for home. I would recommend using this pad near a counter or wall in case you fall. It’s a marvelous training tool for balance. Going further into training, you can work muscle control as you are balancing. You can also add movement of the free leg and/or arms. It’s very good for developing ankle strength.
It is very good for improving balance
I first used this pad in a physical therapy program. It is very good for improving balance, but is also safe to use By safe, I mean there is not a lot of danger from falling. the pad arrived at my door promptly and in excellent shape, although it is one of those almost indestructible
It seems like a lot to pay for a ‘bit of foam’
It seems like a lot to pay for a ‘bit of foam’, but I’ve tried many of the Airex alternatives found them all to be either too soft or too hard. There might be a version available for a fraction of the price, but I reckoned I’d spend more money searching for it than a ‘real’ Airex costs. So, I bought it. I’ve used one many times at the gym, so I knew what I was getting. Its great for balance exercises and some stretches I find essential after a day in front of a computer. Yes, the one I bought is likely to start cracking and flaking and need replaced. But, until it does I’ll be using it most days.
It’s what the Therapy Professionals use, it’s what I use for my personal therapy, I rate it a BUY!
I had ordered a HemingWeigh Balance Pad, and it was too dense, so I put out the extra money for the Airex. I work in Occupational Therapy and this is the brand the Physical Therapist use. Per my PT cohorts in an outpatient setting (meaning they use them daily and several times a day with various size people) the Airex last about two years. So, for my wife (with back/hip issues) and me, this should last many years. So, the extra money should balance out in balance challenging and use over time. I would say it would be good for someone who can do most daily activities, but needs to increase or maintain their balance due to mild balance decrease. I rate it a BUY!
After using one like this in rehab I felt I would benefit from having it at home too! Wonderful for balance and seems to help my mind too somehow. I use it barefoot while doing some vestibular exercises. When I use it faithfully I find walking up and down stairs so much easier as is getting up out of a chair! Life is so much better with good proprioception. Highly recommend this product.
Keeps Me Balanced
After being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease I noticed some disturbing balance issues. Physical Therapy did wonders and the Airex Balance Pad Blue played a big part and is part of my regular in house PT routine. It’s an ongoing challenge offering a less than solid base. Makes a difference in my confidence.
