AKRON, Ohio, Jan. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Exercise—from rehab to wellness to fitness—is now more versatile, simpler and inspiring with the launch of Performance Health's new TheraBand™ CLX™ Consecutive Loops. This patent-pending innovation changes the game by combining multiple exercise tools in one portable, lightweight and effective package.
By connecting the upper and lower body in a single exercise and facilitating open hand exercises, holding objects with resistance, and completely hands-free exercises, CLX creates entirely new exercise possibilities. It also allows quick and easy transitions between exercises and fast adjustments in exertion during exercises.
"TheraBand professional resistance bands have been the market leading choice and indispensable product for rehab practitioners for over 35 years," stated Marshall Dahneke, CEO, Performance Health. "Thus, it's fitting that we launch this new era of exercise with our TheraBand CLX Consecutive Loops. You have to experience CLX to understand how it will literally change exercise. Just ask the professionals who are using it today."
"I've been using TheraBand with my patients and athletes for over 25 years. Its versatility helps me take care of patients in the clinic, at home or on the road," commented Kevin E. Wilk, PT, DPT, Associate Clinical Director for Champion Sports Medicine (a Physiotherapy Associates Facility) in Birmingham, Alabama. "I trust the TheraBand progression with the top athletes in the world. The CLX is the next big thing in sports and orthopedic rehab; I use it every day."
"The versatility of CLX is unbelievable! I can use it with any of my athletes from rehab to performance enhancement," said Sue Falsone, PT, MS, SCS, ATC, CSCS, COMT, owner of Structure & Function, a consulting and education business for healthcare clinicians and athletes.
"We've built CLX on the trusted TheraBand progression system of colors that practitioners trust and choose over competitors. This breakthrough product also follows TheraBand's evidence-based roots with over 10 clinical studies on CLX completed or underway, in addition to over 500 studies on TheraBand brand elastic resistance," added Dr. Phil Page, PT, PhD, Executive Director of Global Clinical Research at Performance Health.
