CoolBoard was developed to overcome the limitations of other balance trainers to unlock the full potential of balance training by balancing on a ball. We use our Disc to give an easy start.
When balancing on a ball CoolBoard can rock and roll, or to put it another way – slide and tilt, in any direction giving more movement than any other balance trainer.
Most people find getting the hang of it takes using it a couple of times a day for 5 – 10 minutes over 2 to 5 days. Once you do get the hang of CoolBoard it is always fun and addictive to get back on. This means you will use it more for longer, giving you far more benefits.
By offering a range of boards, balls and discs the movement of CoolBoard can be tailored to your current level while allowing you to progress into the future - balance training for life.
