Balance training is centuries old, dating back to the use of martial arts like Tai Chi. In modern times, the use of balance training devices like the original Stanley Washburn Bongo Board as a balance training tool for skiers dates back to the fifties.
Although still a niche in the training equipment market, balance training devices are used at gyms, training centers, physical therapy centers, hospitals, at home, rehab centers, in the military and more.
Users are comprised of almost every age, gender and physical capability including trainers, coaches, professional and amateur athletes, persons with learning and physical disabilities, the entertainment industry, action/extreme sports enthusiasts, recreational users and others.
