What Is a Wobble Board?
A circular disc approximately 45cm in diameter with a hemisphere on one side.
The top side, on which the individual stands, is flat and usually features a non-slippery cover. The bottom side, which goes on the ground, has a hemisphere in the center. In some wobble boards, this hemisphere can be moved higher or lower to increase difficulty and therefore the effect. This allows the board 360 degrees of movement, usually with 10 to 20 degrees of axial tilt.
The most common exercise done is to stand on the wobble board and move from front to back without the sides touching the ground, or move from side to side without the front and back touching the ground. It is however possible to use the wobble board in a wide variety of exercises, such as balanced push-ups and sit-ups, or to improve balance on one leg.
Wobble boards are used for stability training, core exercises, strengthening of the ankles and as a rehabilitation tool for ankle injuries.
