The “BlackBoard Training System” provides a revolutionary capability for training specific movement patterns of the foot, strengthening neuronal connections, and reintegrating them into everyday life.
Because its two connected platforms can move independently the BlackBoard Training system allows isolating specific movements of the forefoot and rear foot for training. The movement axes can be placed freely, which in addition to mobilization also supports targeted activation and strengthening of certain (perhaps deficient) muscle groups.
BlackBoard Traing System – Rehabilitation
Injuries invariably involve pain. This can lead to visible reactions such as swelling or relief posture, but also cause less obvious changes in neuromuscular control.
We use a number of specific cases to give you an impression of how versatile the BlackBoard can be in mobilizing and stabilizing specific areas during all phases of rehabilitation.
Every BlackBoard comes with a detailed Manual of individual adjustments for certain injuries.
Lateral ankle sprain
A lateral ankle sprain is a common injury when you sprain one or more of your ankles lateral tendons. The first step to rehabilitation is mobilizing areas that do not strain the lateral ligaments too much. Later on you need to use stress to increase connective tissue strength and resilence . Increase the tension in your ligament structure, but do it carefully otherwise you may re-injury yourself. At the same time you need to treat the neuromuscular effects. As a result you will have control of maximum range movements.
Over the remaining course of the therapy, the relevant muscles need to be trained so that the foot can once again form a stable and powerful foundation. (e.g., Tibialis Anterior Training).The muscles attached to the ankle on the inner heel are crucial for a functional and reliable foundation. They transform horizontal forces into vertical ones.
Plantar fasciitis is a disorder that results in pain in the heel and bottom of the foot. This position causes a permanent overstressing of the ligaments, which leads to pain. Therapy should aim to mobilize the foot, but especially to re-stabilize the arch.
Cruciate ligament disruption
Cruciate ligament disruption is a severe injury of the knee resulting from torsional trauma. The primary goal in rehabilitation is to stabilize the knee joint to protect it from shear forces. As these gravitational forces affect the foot first, it should be the first route of approach in therapy as well. This is the only way to effectively treat the compensation mechanisms on a neuromuscular level. When the ball of the foot rotates inward, the planter fascia comes under tension and activates the surrounding muscles. This mechanism gives our body a strong basis, which stabilizes the leg axially for moving or standing up.
This diagnosis, which is one of the most common foot deformities. Because Pes Planus and Pes Valgus typically co-occur, this is called pes planovalgus. The aforementioned irregularities give rise to two therapeutic approaches:
- Raising the medial arch
- Stabilizing the heel bone
Since there has not been any way to train these areas functionally, we want to demonstrate the specific BlackBoard configurations for exercises that help correct both irregularities in our videos.
A clawfoot is when the sole of the foot is distinctly hollow with a reduced metatarsus under load. As the heel bone tilts towards the outer edge of the foot, these irregularities are the opposite of the pes planovalgus.
Therapeutical approaches are mobilizing the forefoot in pronation and the heel bone in eversion.
