Stretching devices are tools used to help people stretch their muscles. They do this by providing support or resistance so that you can use your own body weight in order to gradually increase the flexibility of your muscles.
Stretching devices allow you to stretch without the help of another person and, they give you a static hold so that you can easily monitor your progress and see if there is any improvement. This, in turn, improves control and accuracy and reduces the risk of injury.
Stretching devices may also be used by athletes who are training for specific sports who want to improve their range of motion.
Stretching devices are often used in the static stretching method, which has been shown to be highly effective. This is why they may also be used during physical therapy sessions and by people who have had an injury that requires them to stretch regularly.
