The Slant Board, available through the Tucker, Ga-based company American 3B Scientific, is built to provide controlled stretching of the calf muscles at the back of the lower leg. The product can be used to assist in rehabilitating Achilles tendon injuries, shin splints, calf strains, and other lower-leg injuries.
According to the company’s website, an additional advantage of the product is that when both feet are placed on the Slant Board, it can be quickly discerned whether one leg is tighter than the other, a possible imbalance and injury risk.
The site notes that the product offers a 300-pound weight capacity and features an approximately 20-degree incline. It is comprised of FSC Certified Eucalyptus Wood, coated with anti-humidity paint and sealer, and topped with nonslip corrugated rubber.
