The core of ORTO sand STEP must not get wet, avoid the proximity of stronger heat, chemicals and liquids, and prolonged exposure to stronger sunlight. The core may change color but this will not affect the functionality of the product. The core is made of special thermoactive HQ foam, and can be hard in the cold, while at room temperature it acquires its ergonomic properties.
As this is an innovative product, it is difficult to compare the feeling of exercise with something similar, but we will try to give you a first impression:
Since it is made of thermoactive foam that reacts to body heat and weight, as soon as we step on the ORTO sand STEP balance base, the heels begin to sink slightly into the base itself and gravity “pulls” us back. In order to maintain balance (as if we are falling on our backs) we need to lean forward slightly. At that moment, we begin to feel that the feet are “buried” like sand, there is a stimulus to the receptors of the feet and at the same time you gently massage them, which of course makes you comfortable. The ankles stabilize at that point, as do the knees, and we strengthen all the surrounding muscles. We feel the complete back structure of the legs stretch, across the buttocks, down the back all the way to the cervical spine. Maintaining balance, we stand in the correct position, we improve blood and lymph circulation. For a stronger impression you just need to close your eyes ☺.
You can use watching your favorite TV series to massage your feet, strengthen muscles and improve circulation.
For a personal first impression feel free to contact us, visit, try and order.
In addition to the stabilization base, there are also recommended exercises by physiotherapists.
ORTO sand STEP stabilization base in physiotherapy is used by all physiotherapists and medical staff who have patients with proprioception problems, ankle injuries, knees and the like, immediately after stroke (neurological needs), but also athletes and sports associations. Retirees for active aging, children for proper posture.
