BEFORE YOU STRETCH

  1. Place the device at arms- length away from the wall or supportive structure.
  2. Place both hands on the wall - then place either foot onto the device with your heel snugly into the heel rest. Note: Toes may or may not hang off the front platform.
  3. Stand straight up with all your weight on the device and lean slightly forward. It is important to keep hips level and in a vertical position.
  4. While leaning slightly forward keep shoulders, hips and ankle of the food on the device in line with each other. (sticking buttocks backward reduces the effectiveness of the stretch)
  5. Keep your leg straight on the device and let your ankle pivot, so your heel gently rocks back, until you feel a slight tension in the upper "grastroc", calf muscle.
  6. Important Information: If you presently have a foot, ankle or calf injury consult your physician or physical therapist before using the ProStretch. Do not use ProStretch on unstable or wet surfaces, ice, gravel, loose stone, or stand. Never bounce while stretching or stretch to the point to the pain. ProStretch weight limit is 300 lbs and has in one year warranty. Replacing after one year of use is recommended.

 

 

Foot hanguing off ProStretch

A rubber-soled shoe is recommended
while using ProStretch.

Toes may gracefully extend beyond the front edge of the device during usage.
This is acceptable and has no impact on its functionality.
