Wooden Wobble Board
Suited for use by people in the advanced phase of rehabilitation. It is also ideal for athletes and other sportspeople who have a committed home exercise programme.
£29.50 – £42.99
The Wooden Wobble Board is designed for use by individuals who are undergoing a period of rehabilitation on ankle or knee injuries as part of their home exercise equipment.
It can most often be used to rehabilitate ankle injuries such as sprains but can also be used for lower leg and knee injuries. A board will also address upper limb injuries such as the shoulder. The use of the board will lead to core strengthening which in turn can improve posture.
The board is also well suited to athletes or other sports performers who may include it alongside other items of exercise equipment for use in a home-based exercise programme. They can use it in workouts in ways that challenge and improve their balance system.
It can also be used as an aid to brain development in general therapy sessions, in musical training, and other kinds of personal development.

What is a wobble board good for?
Wobble Board Exercises
Balancing on the board strengthens muscles in the lower legs and ankles. Simply stand on the board and try to keep balanced on top for as long as you can. Try to keep your hands by your side for maximum benefit.
Once you have mastered standing on the board try to use side-to-side taps. Start by standing on the board and slowly lean back and forth, left and right and try to get the board to touch the ground as you move. This exercise will improve muscle control.
Stand on top of the board with your feet hip-width apart and keep your legs straight. Slowly start to squat down, by moving as if you were going to take a seat. Keep your head and shoulder vertical. This exercise is great for improving core strength.
A more advanced exercise. Start by putting your hands on your hips and kneel down with your knees on the board. Slowly rotate in one direction and then in the opposite direction. While you are moving concentrate on the motion of your abdominal muscles.
Only do this exercise if you are an advanced user of the wobble board. It is much more difficult to balance on the board with your eyes closed. Always start by getting your balance on the board in a standing position with your eyes open. Next, try to lift one foot off the board and try to balance with the other. Once you have your balance close your eyes and then swop to the other foot.
