$132.29 AUD

The POW.R Decline Board is a premium injury prevention tool recommended by physiotherapists.

Multi-Use: Not only helpful for stretching before/after work out, but also beneficial to the body recovery from plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendon injuries, shin splints, calf strains and other foot and ankle injuries and pain.

Adjustable: This multi-functional decline board is adjustable to five positions: 15°, 20°, 25°, 30° and 35°.

Solid construction: 1.9cm thick wood with anti-slip safety treads. Measured 16" (deep) x 12.5" (wide) x 12" (high). Includes (2) built-in side handles for portability. Easy to put out of sight when not in use.

The Decline Board allows far greater specificity in rehabilitating tendon injuries around the knee and ankle. When performing a standard squat, calf tension and excessive trunk flexion can often act to unload the knee extensors (quadriceps). Over time, specific weakness of the quadriceps muscle-tendon unit is considered to increase susceptibility of injury to the knee extensors to be loaded maximally.

A recent study of rehabilitation programs for elite volleyballer players with jumper's knee found that using the Decline Board produced superior strength gains and improvements in tendon pain compared to a standard squat program (2).

The Decline Board allows targeted strengthening of the knee extensors to achievable in a standard squat, and is a valuable tool in rehabilitation and strengthening of the knee extensor mechanism.
