The TheraBand Stability Disc, available through Performance Health, Akron, Ohio, is engineered to accommodate balance training, rehabilitation, and sports performance enhancement. The 13-inch, latex-free, PVC disc is designed to serve as the most challenging of the company’s Soft Stability Products, according to the company’s website.
When used with other TheraBand products, it is intended to provide a progressive system of exercise. The site notes that the TheraBand Stability Disc is built to offer an unstable and sensory-stimulating surface to facilitate balance and proprioceptive training, and automatic postural reactions. When used as a sitting cushion, the product helps activate core muscles. Clinical uses for the product, the site says, include balance and proprioceptive training for upper and lower extremities, closed kinetic chain exercises, ankle and knee injury prevention and strengthening, and core strengthening and stability.
