Provided below are genuine comments from BalanceMaster™ customers and users:
“We use the BalanceMaster™ extensively on all the professional sportsmen and sportswomen who come to us for treatment. It is good for rehabilitating ligament injuries of the knee as well as injuries to the ankle, and as an aid to proprioception. We see a number of elite sports people who come to us after reconstruction surgery and the BalanceMaster™ is an integral part of their treatment regime as well.”
Mike Garmston, Birmingham Human Performance Laboratory
“Many professional footballers come to us after surgery on the ankle and need considerable work to reduce the resulting stiffness. The BalanceMaster™ is appropriate because it allows stretching exercises while in weight-bearing mode – something that is essential for the rapid rehabilitation of the ankle, which is designed to work under load. The treatment of Achilles tendon ruptures and ligament reconstruction is also greatly assisted by sessions on the BalanceMaster™. The preordained-way the BalanceMaster™ moves is great for helping those with ligament injuries, as it helps them regain balance and ease stiffness in a way that is much better than the traditional wobble board.”
Spokesperson, Lilleshall Hall Sports Injury Rehabilitation Centre
“Injuries to the ankle in football are frequent. So we have found the BalanceMaster™ extremely useful in treating the squad. I would say about 20 to 30 of the squad routinely use the machine every day. The machine manages to perform three jobs at once – passive mobilisation, active mobilisation and re-education of movement. That’s a great asset.”
Grant Dowie, Head Physiotherapist at Middlesbrough FC
“The BalanceMaster™ has proved to be an effective adjunct to the rehabilitation of lower limb and pelvic injuries in our patients. The machine has facilitated the recovery of these conditions by numerous therapeutic effects.”

“Since our patients return from hospital her progress has been superb and her quality of life has improved beyond measure.”
Andrea Madden, The National Falls Collaborative
“We use the machine extensively for our cardiac rehabilitation referrals as it provides good exercise without affecting the heart rate at all. Arthritis sufferers also find it extremely helpful in rotating joints and improving balance. Additionally, the machine is ideal in helping those with low levels of fitness. The machine is very relaxing, but is great at using a variety of muscles, so many of our members use it to warm up and cool down.”
Dawn Harvey, Gateshead Leisure Centre
“Our more elderly referral patients show definite improvement in balance after using the unit. Patients with degenerative conditions also find the machine beneficial, particularly those with osteoarthritis. I’ve even heard it can help with slow nerve regrowth, which is certainly an application worth pursuing”
