CoreAlign by Balance Body is designed to help patients improve posture, balance and functional movement. CoreAlign was developed by physical therapist Jonathan Hoffman. The exercises on the CoreAlign stimulate core stability while at the same time the user is performing challenging exercises. The CoreAlign can be used for musculoskeletal rehabilitation, performance enhancement, post-operative recovery as well as regular exercise for a healthy lifestyle. People walk upright. CoreAlign was designed with this in mind.
Great for gait training
CoreAlign is an exciting tool for gait training. Because of it’s unique design, the upright standing position and use of individual carts on the CoreAlign, this provides optimal conditions for gait training. The CoreAlign frame is enclosed in two tracks and carts that move independently with smooth resistance. There are six elastic resistance tube assemblies on each cart and resistance can come from one or both directions. CoreAlign is also versatile, the resistance of the carts can be changed and upper extremity and torso movements can be added. The simplest moves on the CoreAlign improvise walking in a dynamic environment. The resource of CoreAlign for patients who have difficulty walking can help them reach goals not before imagined.
