An often neglected integral part of optimal sports performance, balance and footwork training offers the collateral benefit of reducing injury potential, while helping the athlete to evenly distribute his/her center of gravity to remain upright as well as his/her footwork during different game time circumstances, resulting in a more stable body that help an athlete achieve better coordination, increased agility, proper balance, adequate reaction time and proprioception, to become faster, efficient, more powerful, but most importantly, less prone to injury. Our tailored programs include drills, exercises and training that are specifically designed to fulfill your needs, defined to your sport and position.
But the biggest benefit he's seen is a surprising one. “You have to learn how to use those muscles again,” says Olafsson. “How to tighten them up, in front and back. And that's the main thing. Those muscles start getting bigger, so you get better at walking. I have more stamina. My gait is better. I don't limp as much.” By forcing the wearer to actively use muscles that were previously ignored, sensor-connected limbs could halt or reverse their deterioration. It's a reminder that, despite the urge among the able-bodied to obsess over cybernetic enhancements, bionic limbs are chiefly medical devices for now, designed to restore function. That a brain-controlled bionic leg would also promote muscle growth is stranger, and more exciting, than all of the superpowered cyborgs that science fiction has to offer.
