The Tennis Balance Board is designed with precise angles on the contact surface that create a “locking-in mechanism” that will force you into the correct weight distribution through your foot, while mimicking the load phase of a forehand or a backhand.  If you are “locked-in” (balanced) on the platform, your central nervous system will be activated perfectly, creating the essential musculoskeletal contractions that are needed to create tennis specific balance.  With practice, you will eventually be able to do the same thing without the platform while you are playing. 

The Tennis Balance Board can also be used for strengthening exercises.  However, it is recommended that you first master the balance (Phase I-III) prior to utilizing the board for strength training exercises.
