Original SANDDUNE™’s distinctive construction coupled with the ease of use, brings a valuable new dimension to the goal of helping reestablish greater balance, coordination and strength to those coping with the fear of falling due to sedentary lifestyle, injury, illness, challenges like Parkinson’s, MS, vertigo, stroke, drop foot, or in some cases Cerebral Palsy.

- As strength increases with regular use, the confidence to walk and function without fear of falling returns.
- It easily incorporates into a comprehensive balance or gait exercise rehabilitation regimen once the assessment protocols of the sensory and motor control systems have been established.
- And provides a low impact apparatus effective for seniors who are physically fit and looking for ways to maintain or build their core and leg strength safely, without the effects of bone and joint jarring exercises.
