Training on the RB 364 improves a client s reactive balance. This helps them react more quickly and appropriately to unforeseen situations or perturbations (slipping, tripping, rolling an ankle, twisting a knee, etc.) and makes them less likely to sustain falls and injuries. Research shows that perturbation or reactive balance training: promotes coordinated muscle activity: enhances dynamic joint stability: improves knee kinematics after ACL rupture; decreases quadriceps dominance in female athletes; reduces risk of knee giving way during athletics; decreases fall risk in elderly and Parkinson s patients. The RB 364 is appropriate for clients of all ages and abilities. Elderly clients will have a decreased risk of falling after their reactive balance is improved. Younger athletic clients will benefit from decreased risk of injury, quicker return to sport and performance enhancement.
