Carpet Skate


Product Description

There are many creative ways of accomplishing the effects of a slide board. Trainers and therapists have used baggies, paper plates, etc. on carpet, but this little device not only affixes securely to the foot, it looks much more professional.

Ideal for more advanced stages of hip musculature training, especially Rotation! Progress from supine and seated versions of hip musculature challenges to internal-external rotation, ab-adduction in standing with progressively more body weight shifted over the moving side.

Ideal for latter stages of hip replacement rehab, etc.

WARNING: Not recommended for use in pairs!!! Only use unilaterally!!!
You must understand the need for restraint/support in strengthening!
You must understand the need for strength before working on balance!
One foot must be the anchor in order to achieve the desired stimulation (progressive range and load) on the moving side!

Sold online as a single unit

A Call for two or more at $26 per pair if multiple units are required for the volume in your facility.

NOTE: Precise use of all RTS Exercise Tools is not as obvious as it may seem. They are not recommended for use by trainers that have not attended RTS courses that include detailed execution, progression, and cuing of/on the specific device!
In fact, if you think use of any of these tools can be generalized or standardized without considering the idiosyncratic realities of each and every individual then you obviously don’t understand it’s purpose nor the forces and internal influences associated, so please do not purchase from RTS.
