The Physiotherapy Room Professional Light (Red) 5 foot Exercise Band is stronger, thicker, wider and of higher quality than other brands. Developed by our physiotherapists for constant use in clinics. Available in 5 strengths: x-light (yellow), light (red) , medium (green), heavy (blue) and X-heavy(black). Each band is 5 feet in length and 6" wide.
Proper use of these bands for resistance exercise provides both positive and negative force on the muscles, improving strength, range of motion and cooperation of muscle groups. Colour-coded progressive resistance gives at-a-glance documentation of progress from one level to the next.
Elastic resistance is a unique type of resistance training compared to other traditional forms, such as isotonic or isokinetic resistances. T he resistance provided by these elastic bands are based on the amount that the band is stretched. This resistance can be measured in pounds of force depending on the percentage the band is stretched from its resting length; this is known as “force-elongation”. Regardless of how long the band is before it’s stretched, the force produced at its stretched length depends on the percent elongation. For example, an initial 2 foot (60 cm) length of Green band that is stretched to 4 feet (120 cm) (double its resting length), is at 100% elongation. Therefore, the resistance of the band is 4.6 pounds at that elongation. If the band is then further stretched to 6 feet (180 cm) (200% elongation), the resistance would be 6.7 pounds.
