The elliptical-shaped, inflatable io-ball, new from OPTP, Minneapolis, is designed to provide versatility in fitness and movement therapy.

The ball can be used vertically or horizontally in order to increase the difficulty of standard movements or create entirely new exercises.

In addition, its lightweight design allows the ball to be used during Pilates, yoga, physical therapy, and active aging exercises.

Benefits include improved balance and coordination, increased strength and flexibility, enhanced focus and concentration, activation of core muscles, and release of tension, according to a company media release.
