Groovi Decline Board

R660.00

The Groovi-Decline Board is perfect for

  • Tendon rehabilitation and strengthening
  • Stretching the calf, achilles tendon and hamstring muscle
  • Improving ankle range and flexibility
  • Stretching the back of the knee
  • Patellar tendon rehabilitation

Use the Groovi Decline Board for runners’ knee and jumpers’ knee and to help alleviate stiffness and pain in the joints and muscles.

Designed by Physiotherapists in conjunction with engineers.

Description

Description

Muscle tightness is a common phenomenon among seniors, those that sit at a desk all day and the active population. It is especially common in runners. The use of an inclined stretching platform prevents ankle joint pain & assists in a more effective stretch to improve ankle range of movement. The inclined angle reduces load on the ankle (talocrural) joint. This allows people who tend to feel a pinch at the front of their ankle when they perform a standard calf stretch to now stretch effectively.

The Decline Board is a calf, achilles and hamstring (posterior chain muscles) stretching device that helps to increase flexibility, improve posture, and promote rehabilitation of lower leg injuries.

Injuries that will benefit from the use of the Groovi Decline Board include:

  • Achilles Tendon pain
  • Ankle stiffness
  • Shin splints
  • Calf strains
  • Knee Stiffness
  • Knee Osteoarthritis resulting in a loss of knee extension range of movement

Injuries higher up the posterior chain that will benefit from the use of the Groovi Decline Board include:

  • Hamstring origin pain
  • Hip and gluteal pain
  • Pelvic and lower back pain

Alleviating posterior chain inflexibility can dramatically improve the overall health of an individual, as well as the overall quality of life.

Groovi-Decline Board Info For The Patient

Groovi-Decline Board Info For The Patient

Since the development of the use of a Decline in eccentric rehabilitation by Tendon expert Jill Cook, research has shown its benefits to:

  • Rehabilitate Tendon injuries, especially the Patellar Tendon
  • Eccentrically strengthen and build the quadriceps muscle (great training for closed chain exercise, such as cycling and downhill skiing)
  • Effectively stretch the calf muscle
  • Improving flexibility improves lower limb biomechanics
  • Improve lower limb biomechanics/ alignment to improve or reduce injury and improve performance.

The Groovi Decline Board is angled at 25 degrees, which provides the optimal angle to get the most benefit for the rehabilitation and strengthening of various muscles and tendons.

Groovi-Decline Board info for the Practitioner

Groovi-Decline Board info for the Practitioner

Since the development of the use of a Decline in eccentric rehabilitation by Tendon expert Jill Cook, much research has shown its benefits to:

  • Improve calf flexibility without impinging the ankle anteriorly (this is crucial to restore ankle dorsiflexion Range of Movement (ROM))
  • A loss of ankle dorsiflexion ROM leads to an increase in ground reaction forces and thus Achilles and Patella tendon loading (this increases the risk of developing Achilles or Patellar Tendinopathies)

The Groovi Decline Board is angled at 25 degrees, which provides the optimal angle to get the most benefit for the rehabilitation and strengthening of various muscles and tendons.
