Performing exercises on a Maze Balance and Rehab Board develops proprioception, which is the subconscious ability to sense body position and joint movement. The proprioceptive system involves numerous receptor nerves located in muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints that are able to sense changes in muscle tension. The brain then responds to those changes by sending signals for the muscles to contract or relax appropriately. You’re constantly correcting your body position through your proprioceptive system without being consciously aware of it.
Aged Care Skills
The proprioceptive system can be damaged or become less effective with age, which can cause balance issues and subsequent injuries from falls. The Maze Balance and Rehab Board board can assist those elderly individuals to maintain or improve proprioception.
Using a Balance Board
When first using the Maze Balance and Rehab Board, begin by trying to stay on balance while standing on the board. Set your feet onto the Maze Balance and Rehab Board so that they’re shoulder-width apart with the toes pointed forward. You’ll likely wobble back and forth in the beginning, but you will see stability improvements with practice. Once you’re ready to challenge yourself further, try balancing with your eyes closed. You can also try to control the movement of the Maze Balance and Rehab Board by tilting it side-to-side and front-to-back without the edges of the board touching the floor. Make sure you use the Maze Balance and Rehab Board in an area free of obstacles.
