Stability Ball Wall Slides:

You will need a stability ball and a flat vertical surface for this exercise.

Successful rehabilitation following injury to the collateral ligaments of the knee involves, among other things, protecting the knee from stresses that may interrupt the reparative process. Bauerfeind’s GenuTrain S provides the support and compression needed to protect your knee and promote healing.

Position the stability ball behind you, compressing it between your back and the wall. With your feet spread hip-width apart and toes pointing forward, slide down until your thighs become parallel to the ground.

Pause briefly at the bottom of your motion before slowly returning to the starting position. Your knees should remain above your ankles and behind your toes throughout this exercise. Perform all movements in a controlled fashion. Relax and repeat according to your ability.

GenuTrain® S

> Stabilizes the knee joint and activates the muscles
> Lightweight, breathable anatomical knit will not retain heat for high wearing comfort
> Anatomically contoured bars for secure support
> Machine washable
