Platform principles are based on the natural movement of human gait. The changing movement, resembling the movement of swings with variable amplitude and frequency, stimulates a sequence of movements reminiscent of human gait. The fast movement of the training platform causes the pelvis to be tilted – similar to walking, but much more frequently. The body reacts with compensation: rhythmic muscle contractions, alternating on the left and right side of the body. From the frequency of about 12 Hz, such cramps are not conscious – they are a reflex. The stretch reflex activates the muscles of the legs, abdomen and back, up to the upper part of the body.
Training with the help of a balance platform only charges the circulatory system to a minimum, helps to stimulate blood circulation and metabolism, anmd provides:
- Increase in muscle strength,
- Muscle hypertrophy after immobilization,
- Prevention of osteoporosis,
- Pelvic floor training and prevention of stress urinary inicontinence,
- Warm-up training.
Muscule Function :
- Improvement of muscle function,
- Improving the flexibility and range of traffic,
- Releasing tense muscles, preventing back pain,
- Faster regeneration after training and competition,
Start Up :
- Balance and coordination training,
- Prevention of falls.
Nervous And Muscular System:
Before using the balancing platform, the following contraindications should be excluded:
- Acute thrombosis,
- Implants (eg, artificial joints) in the parts of the body being trained,
- Acute inflammation of the musculoskeletal system, active arthrosis (degenerative disease) or arthropathy (acute swelling and arthritis),
- Acute tendinopathy of the parts of the body being trained (acute tendinitis),
- Acute hernia,
- Acute discopathy (acute problems with intervertebral discs),
- Fresh fractures of the trained body parts,
- Gallstones or kidneys,
- Fresh wounds and postoperative scars in the trained parts of the body, or an unfinished process of tissue healing,
- Rheumatoid arthritis,
- Epilepsy, due to the secondary risk of injury.
