Baseline Sit and Reach Box for Flexibility Tests
For physical trainers or healthcare professionals who frequently need to test the trunk flexibility of individuals, the Baseline Sit and Reach Box for Flexibility Tests is a must-have product. Specifically designed to target the flexibility of the lower back and hamstring, it is suitable for both standard Sit and Reach Tests, as well as those modified for individuals with additional needs or who are unable to get reliable results with a standard test.
Who Can Benefit from the Sit and Reach Box?
This Sit and Reach Box is more versatile than many standard versions as it can be adjusted to accommodate individuals with very long arms or legs, or other scenarios where the baseline figure must be modified. It is therefore suitable for both standard sit and reach test, as well as those versions modified for variations in extremity length, so most individuals should be able to achieve a reliable result.
How Do I Use the Sit and Reach Box?
The Sit and Reach box is typically used by physical therapists or other healthcare professionals, as well as trainers to assess the lower body flexibility of individuals using what is known as the 'sit and reach test'. In the standard version of this test, the person sits with their feet against the base plate and the marker at zero, then leans forward and pushes the marker as far as possible to get their result.
This box also allows for modified versions of the test where the starting point of the scale is changed, including the test for those with longer limbs, and the back saver version which tests one leg at a time.
Easy, Intuitive Testing
For easy quick and effective use in practically any setting, this apparatus has a straightforward, hardwearing design and requires no complicated set-up or additional equipment to operate. It has a built-in plate for the user to rest their feet against, and a central panel which marks the user's maximum stretch until it is reset.
