The Sanddune (Your Exercising Companion)
The Sanddune is a memory type foam block (made of two different type of foams) that bounces back with a mirror type of resistance. This foam block has a no joint load so your back and legs do not feel stress when you are walking or running on it. I used to walk about an hour a day but some mornings I didn’t have time or it got too hot, and walking on the cement started taking its toll on my knees. Now I use the Sanddune about five times a day about two to three minutes each time, and I love it. I still walk occasionally but only on the grass, and I combine the two activities. My posture has gotten so much better, and so has my balance and flexibility.
What I like to Do: when not exercising on the Sanddune, I move it under my desk and rest my feet on it while I am working on the computer. This maneuver forces me to sit up straight while my legs are resting on the foam, helping to take the pressure off of my legs. I feel refreshed and relaxed.
The Sanddune should be rotated during use because there is a slight incline to help in your balance. Until you get your rhythm, please lean on a chair, a table or use a walker.
Orthopedic and neurological patients of all ages, as well as dancers, golfers, cyclists and athletes from other sports, benefit from workouts on the SANDDUNE®. Workouts vary in intensity from simple padding of the foot pads for beginners to gentle warm-ups involving stretching and select yoga/Pilates movements for those with good balance, to aerobic/anaerobic “peak out exercise” sessions for those looking to really add to their workout conditioning regimen.
Cover: The whole family can benefit when using the Sanddune, just have everyone wear a pair of socks while exercising on the Sanddune. It comes with an anti-bacterial cover in the pleasant color of grey. The cover has fast evaporation and quickly draws moisture away from the skin; blocks and absorbs UV-Rays to protect the skin.
