Activating Functional Mobility, new from OPTP, Minneapolis, includes numerous exercises that can be performed using the ActivMotion Bar.

The 4-foot x 1 1/2-inch ActivMotion Bar, distributed by OPTP, is filled with ball bearings that glide smoothly within the Bar during exercise use.

The full-body exercises described in the book are designed specifically to take advantage of the Bar’s “rolling resistance” and to help increase core muscle engagement while increasing range of motion. Detailed instructions, as well as full-color photographs, are included.

Dan Mikulski, BS, CSCS, CPT, creator of the ActivMotion Bar, authored the book along with physical therapist Nicole Bushong, PT, DPT, RYT-200.
