Hello Peter, I am very wary of attributing such amazing results for items such as the tool without long term, regular usage.
That being said, 10 mins of using the tool upon receiving it last week and my ROM when stretching was noticeable in that it improved some 10cms. All from a little discomfort (at first) when I used the tool on the hamstrings.
I now look at my generic foam roller (and even the fancier rumble roller) and shake my head as they have come close to redundancy in my little arsenal of SMR tools.
I am really looking forward to exploring the ways in which this invention of yours will work its magic…although I know using it on my ITB’s is definitely going to make me wince at first!
Having transitioned from heavy weightlifting to road cycling the difference in terms of mobility work and regular soft tissue maintenance required of each discipline provides an interesting learning journey.
And it has to be said – congratulations on realising your vision. In a country such as Australia, where R & D and actually innovating new products seems to have been traded in for property speculation as the only game in town, this is to be applauded Thanks again. Great work. Regards Dan S
