When the rider activates the Vew-Do Balance Board with movement, the board continuously disrupts your center of balance using dynamic and multi-directional motion. This puts you in "balance recovery" mode and forces you to use and develop all three of your body's balance systems; The Visual (depth, velocity and motion perception), the Vestibular System (inner ear), and the Somatic Sensory or Somatosensory System (proprioception and exteroception). The Vew-Do Balance Board also trains and develops the three main balance recovery strategies including the ankle strategy, the hip strategy and the step strategy.
As you achieve a higher skill progression, you're body will store this information as muscle memory. In reality, it's really an "unbalance" board. That's because the skill enhancement for balance recovery is gained by disrupting your balance or base of support (BOS). Balance training is training to go from an unbalanced state back to a balanced state.
In addition to improving balance recovery skills, proprioception and other benefits, balance boards also add physical conditioning, strengthening of muscles, tendons and ligaments, calorie burning and enjoyment to your training routine.
