TheraBand® Soft Weights are hand-held,
ball-shaped isotonic weights - a soft alternative to traditional isotonic
dumbbells providing users more versatility for strength training and
rehabilitation exercises. They are unique because the size of the ball, with a
diameter of 4.5", does not increase as weight increases, allowing for a
consistent and functional grip. This allows for either unilateral or bilateral
exercise progressions, either independently, or with a partner.
Soft Weights follow the TheraBand system of
progressive exercise and are available in six color-coded weights, ranging
from tan (oe kg/1.1 lbs), to black (3 kg/6.6 lbs), increasing in 1/2kg/1.1 lb.
increments. Soft Weights allow users to increase weight in resistive training
and rehabilitation programs without changing grip or technique, which is
fundamental to the principles of progressive exercise.
In addition to traditional strengthening
exercises for the upper and lower body, the Soft Weights can be used for many
other applications. Their soft texture allows for functional grip or exercises
for individual fingers which aid in hand and wrist rehabilitation. The Soft
Weight can also be used for plyometric exercises for the upper extremity with
a rebounder or mini-trampoline. Balance training or stabilization exercises
can also be performed using the Soft Weight for patients with lower extremity
or lower back injuries.
Each TheraBand Soft Weight is accompanied by a guide that demonstrates proper
exercises for a variety of applications.
