The DS2 PLATFORM
(Dynamic Stabilization and Strengthening Platform)
The DS2 PLATFORM is a multiple patented product that takes traditional exercises to a new level. This is a simple rehab tool that allows you to perform Closed Kinetic Chain (CKC) upper extremity exercises ON THE WALL with limited weight-bearing through the shoulder! Closed Kinetic Chain exercises have been shown to promote slight compression in the glenohumeral joint and co-contraction of the shoulder and scapular muscles, which leads to increased stability of the joint.
This versatile low-friction platform can be used for patient-controlled stretching or strengthening of the rotator cuff and scapular muscles, which makes it ideal for transitioning from the initial phase of rehab to the intermediate phase and beyond. Exercises can also be progressed by adding resistive bands and placing the user in various positions, such as overhead or in an abducted position.
In addition, challenge the user with upper extremity and core (trunk) exercises in a push-up position with the platform on the floor, or add lower extremity exercises to get the full body experience. The DS2 PLATFORM can be utilized for any segment of the body and at any stage of rehabilitation or level of exercise!
