More detailed description
Innovative Croatian product! Presented for the first time at the International Congress of Physiotherapists in 2012 in Varaždin.
ORTO sand STEP stabilization pad in physiotherapy is used by medical staff who have patients with proprioception problems, injuries to the ankle, knee and the like. Or immediately after a stroke (neurological needs). But also to athletes and sports associations. Retirees for active aging, children for proper posture.
Since it is made of thermo active 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 ☺.

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.
