HOW TO SELECT YOUR WEIGHT
The WAV Sensorimotor Trainer stimulates the central nervous system through novel proprioceptive information. As such, selecting the appropriate weight does not follow conventional thinking for progressive resistance training. WAV training goals are expressed in terms of quality movement (form and function) rather than quantity (number of reps and amount of weight). A small change in weight can mean the difference between facilitating or bypassing proper activation of the vestibular, proprioceptive and feedforward systems the WAV Sensorimotor Trainer aims to promote.
The appropriate weight is determined by the therapeutic application and intent as well as the client’s individual needs and goals. Your selection should support training with a sense-driven focus to allow the WAV to help enhance the sensorimotor system. A good entry point for most movers is ≈2.5 lbs., which allows for proper adaptation and acclimation to training with your senses. All WAV Trainers are roughly 48” in length with a 4.5” grip surface making it usable across all planes of the body for most clients. Below are some additional guidelines:
≈2 lbs. BEST FOR EARLY REHAB, GERIATRIC, PEDIATRIC
Beneficial early in the rehab process to stimulate the nervous system without overwhelming the muscles or passive structures. Also useful for unilateral applications, youth and chair-based training. An effective weight to introduce to clients with neurologic involvement, sitting and standing balance deficits, and decreased muscle strength to cue in the sensorimotor system. A good fit for a variety of senior bases exercise and wellness interventions.
≈2.5 lbs. RECOMMENDED GENERAL APPLICATION
Suitable for various therapeutic applications to tap into the neuromuscular system, improve mind body connection and control. Provides a challenging yet manageable weight for upper extremity, lower extremity, trunk stability, and balance applications and youth athletic training. Useful for a variety of exercise applications such as beginner or intermediate Pilates and yoga classes, and wellness interventions to complement the mindful and whole-body training approaches in these practices.
≈3 lbs. IDEAL FOR ORTHO, ATHLETIC TRAINING, ADVANCED EXERCISE
Appropriate in the outpatient setting to challenge proprioceptive control and neuromuscular communication, especially in orthopedic and sports training populations. A good fit for a variety of exercise applications such as intermediate or advanced Pilates, yoga and wellness classes to complement the mindful and whole-body training approaches in these practices.
≈3.5 lbs. GOOD FOR ADVANCED ATHLETIC TRAINING
Useful for high level athletes with good muscular control, dynamic stability for bilateral upper and lower extremity training, and injury prevention with a significant challenge to sensorimotor system and musculoskeletal system. This increased weight requires adequate strength in order to appropriately tap into the vestibular and neuromuscular systems to improve brain body control.
