Exercise in Bed Effectively with PhysioBoard

If you search for "exercise in bed," you'll find hundreds of online suggestions for exercises that can be done on your mattress. However, while many exercises and stretches can be done on your bed, it doesn't mean they should. The softness or "give" of a mattress does not provide the proper support to maintain the correct posture to make exercise effective. Without this support, you may be doing more harm than good.

In fact, improper posture or support while exercising can cause strain on the lower back and neck. Instead of using your core (abdominal) muscles when doing crunches, planks and other exercises, your back has to work overtime to keep you from sinking into the mattress. You may also find yourself pulling up on your neck to lift your upper body.

But what if you can't get down and up from the floor?

The reason many people try exercising on their beds is because getting down and up from the floor is difficult or in some cases, impossible. Back injuries, hip or knee replacements, arthritis, muscle weakness and imbalance are just some of the reasons you may not be able to exercise and stretch on the floor.

PhysioBoard is the Solution

So, if you can't get on the floor and exercising on your mattress is not ideal, what can you do? This problem is the reason the PhysioBoard was invented! The PhysioBoard is a lightweight (only 11 pounds), rigid board that transforms your bed into an effective exercise surface. Simply place it on any mattress when you're ready to exercise or stretch and then remove it when you're done. Unlike bulky exercise tables, the PhysioBoard can be easily stored behind a door or in a closet.

The PhysioBoard has comfortable foam padding and a bacteria- and water-resistant cover that is machine washable. It was designed by a physical therapist in conjunction with an engineer to make exercising on your bed comfortable and effective.
