The OOV is made up of a durable foam piece that is used to complement the natural curvatures of the spine. When using the OOV, it helps activate one’s core stabilising muscles while extending the spine. This facilitates efficient lubrication to the intervertebral discs in the spine. It has changed how people train and how they treat spinal related conditions.
The Oov creates a 3D environment, allowing the body to move in 3 Planes, facilitating motor learning. Lying on the Oov axially elongates the spine, and the pelvis is up off the ground and free to move in all 3 planes – meaning you also have to control the pelvis in all 3 planes.
The head is lower than the hips, inhibiting the use of your accessory respiratory muscles to breathe, thereby promoting Diaphragmatic Breathing. Research shows that breathing from our accessory muscles up-regulates the fight or flight response, but breathing from the Diaphragm helps calm the nervous system down. The Diaphragm is also part of the core and needs to be integrated into core training exercises.
The Oov is Dynamic due to the Proprietary material, and is soft and flexible, but only to a point, where the foam starts to push back.
The Design and Material work together to create a device where you have to find balance, use your core to control your trunk, and learn how to move one part of your body without moving another. The Oov can be used supine, prone, side-lying, kneeling and standing.
From stretching to core strengthening to rehabilitation or for relaxation purposes, the Oov can be utilised with significant benefits for spinal health. The Oov can be readily applied in the fields of fitness, yoga, pilates, physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic, massage and stress relief. Specific exercises and stretches have been developed with the help of medical practitioners and trainers to address different body types, patterns and ailments.
The OOV aims to:
- Achieve a neutral spine during exercises
