August 30, 2012 — Performance Health has expanded its portfolio of products with patent-pending innovations that aid in myofascial release, a critical component of musculoskeletal health. These new products, Thera- Band Roller Massagers+, Pro Foam Rollers, and Foam Roller Wraps+, are ideal for training, injury prevention, and rehabilitation.
The Thera-Band Roller Massager+ is an ideal tool for myofascial release and deep tissue massage. Its unique patent-pending ridged design supports both superficial and deep tissue mobilization while providing a massage-like experience.
The standard-sized Roller Massager+ is ideal for in-clinic use and features handles that are designed to facilitate trigger point release; the portable version offers patent-pending retractable handles for ease of use at home or away from home. Use of the Roller Massager+ can help increase blood flow and circulation in targeted areas, increase muscle flexibility, and improve range of motion.
Patent-pending, ridged Thera-Band Foam Roller Wraps+, used in conjunction with standard 6” round foam rollers, help allow the practitioner to make the most of foam rolling, whether they’re introducing it to their practice or enhancing an existing foam roller investment. This new system serves as a novel tool for hands-free myofascial release, deep tissue massage, and stabilization exercises, and can help increase muscle flexibility and range of motion. The Foam Roller Wraps+ are available in four colors of progressive density to support varying degrees of tissue mobilization — yellow (x-soft) providing extra cushion for more delicate patient populations through blue (x-firm) for advanced fascia mobilization.
The Thera-Band Pro Foam Rollers are made of highly durable closed-cell foam to extend the product’s life and maintain its form. They can be used as a standalone device or in conjunction with the patent-pending Thera-Band Foam Roller Wraps+. The Pro Foam Rollers are available in the standard 6” diameter, in both 36” and 12” lengths, and a 6” half round diameter in the 36” length.
All of these Thera-Band products, designed for the demands of in-clinic use, are individually packaged for resale by the practitioner. This enables patients and clients to obtain the same in-clinic benefits when they’re at home and on the go. Each product includes detailed exercise instructions featuring general techniques and advanced exercises divided by muscle region.
“We are very excited to bring these new progressive therapy products to the marketplace,” stated Paul Timko, senior product manager at Performance Health. “Like the practitioners who rely on our products, we realize the importance of having simple solutions to help individuals increase flexibility and range of motion, strengthen muscles, improve balance and gain better functional movement. Thera-Band is the brand the world’s leading professionals trust with their patients’ and athletes’ outcomes — and have for decades.”
These new portable, economical, versatile and easy-to-store Thera-Band solutions effectively and efficiently support in-clinic programs, at-home exercise programs and self-initiated wellness programs.
