For most people, their health begins to decline with age. As you grow older, you may find that it’s harder to perform even basic tasks such as walking around and putting on clothes. In extreme cases, you may even find yourself confined to a bed. This is because your centre of balance tends to weaken gradually with age.
In order to prevent this and keep yourself healthy and in tip-top shape, 60uP offers a great way for you to remain happy and healthy even as you get older.
The 60uP Balance Board can help you strengthen your core and keep you healthy and independent.
What is a balance board, exactly?
A balance board is a tool designed to help improve the balance of the user. It works the same way as the seesaw principle. Before using the board, you should make sure that it is balanced, with neither side touching the ground.
There are many exercises you can do on the board, though you should start slow and eventually move to more complex ones. Eventually, you begin to notice an improvement in your posture, overall balance, reaction time, and consequently in the quality of your life.

Does it work?
In short, yes, it does. Very well, in fact.
It has been proven that balance boards can help with physiotherapy exercises involved behind balance correction. With this board, you won’t only be improving your balance, you’ll also strengthen your leg and arm muscles and regain your lost mobility, which is worth a lot more.
There aren’t any side effects, but as always, one should always consult their doctor or physician before adapting anything extra. After all, using the balance board is similar to walking on the street.
The great thing about the balance board is that you’re able to use it in the comfort of your own home, meaning you can use it while watching TV or listening to music.
Since the board is designed for seniors, it was also designed with safety in mind. Two separate poles will give you extra security and engage the upper body muscles.
