The Smart Alternative to Conventional Weights
One size ball available in six different weights.
Thera-Band® Soft Weights are hand-held, ball-shaped isotonic weights - a soft alternative to traditional isotonic dumbbells providing users more versatility for strength training and rehabilitation exercises. They are unique because the size of the ball, with a diameter of 4.5", does not increase as weight increases, allowing for a consistent and functional grip. This allows for either unilateral or bilateral exercise progressions, either independently, or with a partner.
Soft Weights follow the Thera-Band system of progressive exercise and are available in six color-coded weights, ranging from tan (½ kg/1.1 lbs), to black (3 kg/6.6 lbs), increasing in 1/2kg/1.1 lb. increments. Soft Weights allow users to increase weight in resistive training and rehabilitation programs without changing grip or technique, which is fundamental to the principles of progressive exercise.
In addition to traditional strengthening exercises for the upper and lower body, the Soft Weights can be used for many other applications. Their soft texture allows for functional grip or exercises for individual fingers which aid in hand and wrist rehabilitation. The Soft Weight can also be used for plyometric exercises for the upper extremity with a rebounder or mini-trampoline. Balance training or stabilization exercises can also be performed using the Soft Weight for patients with lower extremity or lower back injuries.
Each Thera-Band Soft Weight is accompanied by a guide that demonstrates proper exercises for a variety of applications.
