These Planking Handles are a great addition to any A, C, H & F series Align-Pilates reformer, or Combo Pilates Chair. The planking handles are rotatable so they can face in 4 different directions and they can lock at 4 different heights in each of the directions, offering a total of 16 different positions. Planking handles can be used by everyone, from your rehab clients to athletes. Great for plank-based exercises, the handles also offer much more; by turning the handles at right angles to the footbar it creates an ideal position for when you are working with clients suffering with carpal tunnel syndrome, RSI, arthritis, or difficulty being able to weight bear for any length of the time on the footbar. This alternative position can reduce the pressure through the wrists reducing discomfort and pain. When rotated externally, the handle acts like an extended footbar. This allows better postural alignment in exercises which are off set to the reformer such as the scooter exercise.
They can also act as a wider footbar for larger clients be it hands on bar or, feet on bar, or act as a stability point for standing rehab-based exercises. Another great advantage of the planking handles over a footbar is it can be used in offset positions, eg. One high, one low, or one facing the footbar end and the other the head end. This allows for some really challenging exercises and useful for working on reducing the influence of a dominant arm or leg. The plank handles can also be used to gain similar benefits with our Combo Pilates Chair. Maximum user weight: 150kg, sold in pairs.
