Power Systems has teamed up with HighRoller to take self-myofascial release to new heights – literally. The HighRoller is a foam roller positioned on a revolving axle and suspended on a height adjustable stand. The stand allows the user to execute self-myofascial release techniques without limited pressure on the upper body musculature of the arms, shoulders and neck.
With the HighRoller, there is no need to expend energy to maintain the exercise positions; now you can direct all that energy into the essential action – rolling and relaxation. Foam rolling techniques are most effective when you can relax the muscle you are treating. The construction of the HighRoller allows you to roll while maintaining natural postures promoting relaxation in both the treated and untreated muscle groups during exercises.
The concept for the HighRoller began in 2013 with a team of exercise physiologists in Finland. After three years of fine tuning, the next level in foam rolling was introduced to the world. The adjustable stand allows the user to set up the roller in three positions: high – about 14 inches off the ground, low – approximately 2 inches off the ground, and angled.
While the angled legs and non-slip foot pieces add stability to the raised foam roller, it is important during rolling exercises to apply pressure on the roller directly from above. This makes adjusting the pressure easier on the user and prevents the roller from tipping over.
For more targeted myo-fascial release, the HighBaller is just what you need. The round shape of the HighBaller provides a smaller surface area than its counterpart, making it possible to manipulate the muscle with deep massage and target small, specific areas. It features two adjustable massage balls that may be adjusted by angle and width for self-myofascial release.
HighBaller’s dual-massage surface is firm and creates appropriate pressure on the skin to prevent the massaged body part from slipping for a more precise and effective form of muscle care. The twin-ball configuration of the HighBaller offers the possibility to treat two problematic areas at the same time, and the width adjustment makes it possible to treat both large and small muscle groups. It also comes with a full trigger point map of the body to maximize your myofascial release session.
The HighBaller and HighRoller are available exclusively from Power Systems. Product set up, demonstration and exercise videos for both are FREE and can be found at musclecareacademy.com.
