When Nic Bartolotta invented the DCT Proflex he was looking to solve a very unique problem… strengthen and stretch the muscles of the ankle. The technique (DCT) that he developed requires the ability to overpower a muscle while it is contracting and force it to lengthen under tension. A scenario known as an eccentric muscle contraction. The muscles that cross the Ankle are so incredibly strong, and the foot itself is such an incredibly short lever arm that it is nearly impossible to force an eccentric contraction by hand or by yourself. The ProFlex attaches to the foot and creates a longer lever arm which gives the user the ability to easily generate the force needed to eccentrically stretch the muscles of the lower leg.

I love that I can stretch while sitting in front of the TV!

I normally need to get up and face the wall to stretch my calves but with the Proflex, you can still leverage your weight while sitting down. My right hip has always given me a problem but for some reason when i use this to stretch my calves, it also stretches the hip really well. I’m able to run longer without the pain that has always prevented me from running long distances. The leverage I can get with this stretching tool also allows me to get in the higher calf area as well. I’m satisfied with the product and recommend it to all!

Great invention!

As an athlete, I have been working to improve my flexibility for better movement and strength in my lower body. This is by far the best leverage-based stretching product on the market. I have been able to utilize the DCT Proflex to increase flexibility in a short amount of time for my hamstrings, calves, hips, and glutes – I highly recommend trying this out and watching the videos online to see the different stretches you can use this wonderful tool for.

Great tool

My experience with the DCT ProFlex has been a great one so far. A little over a year ago I had a pretty serious hamstring strain and the PT that I went to happen to use the DCT ProFlex and explained to me how it would help. Not long after having it done on me I decided to purchase one myself, as a chiropractic medicine student and a professional athlete that also has the hopes to work with young athletes, I thought this would be a great tool to have in my office. While having the device was going to be a great investment for my future I needed to know how to use it, so I decided to shadow my PT to follow his protocol used. He follows the DCT protocol but as I am a student still, flying to a class and paying for it is still a bit out of my reach for now. Since having my own DCT ProFlex I have not strained my hamstring once and I have felt better out on the field as well. The DCT also is a great warm up device in my opinion so it aids in prevention just and much as rehabilitation. Greatest part for me was having a small problem in my order and being able to get an email back from the company developer himself and getting it resolved it a quick timely manner.

This is the best exercise tool that I have found that truly isolates the calf or shin muscles. I use it to resistance stretch my clients as well as myself. It ALWAYS produces a feeling of looseness that is hard to describe because one can never get this loose otherwise. You can produce an incredible fascial line stretch as well. Eccentric stretching is different so I advise that you watch the clear and thorough video instructions more than once for optimal results.
