The Eau-Me Board is a new-generation balance board boasting a patented combination of classic balance training with the element of water.
At first glance, the Eau-Me Board looks like a classic balance board. However, with its tapered, almost cone-shaped base point and unique water feature, your workouts will become a true challenge.
Balance boards are suitable for all ages and, if used regularly, will enhance fitness and balance while always remaining easy on the joints – in the home, office or studio.
Put simply, the Eau-Me Board is all about balance, challenging the user with a constantly unsteady, shifting base – thus, forcing the body to react with each tilt. Compensatory moves engage the deep muscular system while the body responds to continual impulses and stimuli.
Unique: the water
Patented technology: new impulses through shifting water
The Eau-Me Board’s water content follows its own will, working against the athlete. The result: water flow shifts direction with each move of the user. No regular patterns can be practiced or memorised – the body is triggered into immediate reaction to the water’s apparently arbitrary stimuli.
Why balance training?
Exercise on a balance board will train your coordination and sense of balance, as the multitude of little compensation moves you are forced to perform engage your deep musculature, conditioning your movements and overall stability. Balance board use engages your core muscles, automatically improving posture and even actively helping prevent back pain.
What are the Eau-Me Board’s qualities?
The mod balance board design consists of a sturdy footplate made of high-grade wood, connected to a plastic base filled with water. The water’s flow shifts with each movement, so that there are no typical patterns the user can rely on and the body is forced to react to the arbitrary stimuli. Striving to maintain balance, with the ever-shifting water base, releases a whole new range of shifting water and imbalance – you will be forced to take action!
The classic balance board move is to simply stand and try to maintain balance, which already requires quite some skill. Keeping the board stable and balanced may require more practice for some. When you’re ready to increase the challenge, try adding free-weights or a balance bar, squats or standing on one leg to your workout. A session on the balance board need not lack in variety and is definitely never boring!
Balance boards are further becoming increasingly popular for increasing difficulty of classic push-ups: Start by placing your hands on either side of the Eau-Me Board, maintain a straight back and an engaged core. Slowly lower your body down to the board, while keeping it in balance – an excellent exercise for strengthening arms, core and back muscles.
