The Activating Functional Mobility Manual features exercise physiology and training methodology designed specifically for the 4.5 pound ActivMotion Bar. Physical Therapists and corrective exercise specialists will find this manual helpful for practical exercises with the weighted, dynamic training tool.
The Activating Functional Mobility Manual was developed in conjunction with leading educators in physical therapy. It provides a framework for integrating ActivMotion Bars into treatment plans as clients relate to common areas of weakness or injury. Movements are broken down into applications for scapular and shoulder stability, trunk stability, pelvic stability, and balance. All exercises utilize the unique "rolling resistance" of the ActivMotion Bar, and are designed to increase core muscle engagement while improving range of motion. Detailed instructions and color photographs demonstrate each movement to ensure proper technique whether training under supervision or at home. Users of all abilities will find the Activating Functional Mobility exercise guide makes therapy training fun and effective, and the movements help them progress toward pain-free, enjoyable living.
