The only portable exercise device that stretches muscles three dimensionally. Unlike traditional single direction, single joint stretching and strengthening exercises: TRI-STRETCH® programs allow the user to stretch and strengthen in mulitple directions with multiple joints working simultaneously replicating the demands of sport.
TRI-STRETCH® is based on the science of movement. Human movement is a combination of three directions ....forward to backward.....side to side.....and rotational. When walking, running, swinging a golf club or blocking at the line: our joints move and our muscles lengthen in all three of these directions in various amounts. Therefore it only makes sense that we stretch and strengthen in all three of these directions as well.
A traditional wall calf stretch stretches the calf in one direction: forward but does not stretch in the side to side or rotational directions. The calf though does get lengthened in these other two directions as the foot enters in to the ground as you take a step when you walk and run. When the heel hits the ground, it strikes on the outside of the heel and then tips inward (side to side motion) and the lower leg rotates inward (rotational motion). By using TRI-STRETCH® in the traditional calf stretching position, you can replicate the heel tliting and the lower leg rotating and therefore actually stretch the calf in all three directions of motion, replicating how it is stretched when you walk and run.
Although TRI-STRETCH® can be used while performing traditional exercises to make them three dimensional, it also has the unique features to assist in hundreds of new exercises which challenge the musculature to bring flexibility and strength to new levels. It has also been used very successfully in the rehabilitation of many injuries from ankle sprains, to ACL tears and back pain.
TRI-STRETCH® advantages include:
- Three dimensional training
- Training multiple joints simultaneously replicating the demands on them during sport.
- Stretching and strengthening in the weight-bearing foot on the ground position instead of foot off off the ground, seated position.
- Biomechanically based exercise replicating how the muscles are used in sport, walking and daily activities.
- Portable , take it with you anywhere device.
