The maze in this balance board distracts from the balancing exercise thus making the challenge harder compared with a standard balancing board. While this board can take weight up to 80 kg, the footprint size makes it suitable for 3-10 years, for older users with a bigger foot size you begin to run out of foot space. Supplied with 3 balls. Performing balance exercises on a balance board has been proven to help children with coordination problems. Improvements have been seen in rhythm, auditory and visual processing, and motor coordination in children struggling with sensory challenges. In trying to maintain your balance whilst using this balance board the body’s sensory system is trained by forcing the brain and body to focus on remaining stable in a difficult situation, meaning both halves of the brain have to work together. Additional Information The fulcrum of this balance board is a semi-sphere. This allows the board to pivot in all directions, forward-backward, left-right and anywhere in between, i.e., toward 360 degrees. Standing on a balance board exercises muscles that are not exercised by standing on rocker boards that tilt in only two (opposite) directions.
