Check out this Crossfitter's improvement from just the assessment alone. Not only did it improve his overhead mobility, squat depth, and symmetry... but this also improved his balance and decreased his back pain.
The next day he hit his PR with the Snatch and after only a couple weeks in the vest, he had tremendous carryover into his workouts.
How is this vest different from the weighted vests I can buy online?
BalanceWear vests are customized for you and weighted specifically by a certified therapist based off of your performance. Instead of providing heavy input for general strengthening, it facilitates proprioceptive input and muscle activation from a microlevel... leading to powerful results. The specificity of the light weights targets areas on your body to help with postural control, stability, and decreases compensations.
What does an assessment entail?
Dr. Powell will come to your house and perform different balance tests with you. She will fit you with the vest, place specific weights depending on your results, then re-test your balance again after. People are amazed with the immediate results!
How many visits would I need?
Only 2 visits are required: 1 for the assessment and 1 for fitting your vest and weights when they arrive. If you stop feeling the full benefit from the device because you are stronger and your body has adapted to it, then you could schedule a re-assessment to change the weight placements depending on your new results.
How often should I wear my vest?
Typically, you would wear your vest daily to maximize the benefits and neuroplasticity (the ability of neural networks in the brain to change through growth and reorganization). Wearing the vest creates stability at your core which improves how you move and helps stabilize you. Your muscles will adapt and grow stronger with greater repetitions, just like in any training program. Your therapist will discuss with you in greater detail about your wearing schedule.
Is it covered by insurance?
If you have out of network benefits, Dr. Powell will provide you with a receipt and information needed to submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement. For the frequency and duration that you wear this vest, it ultimately costs less than $2/day.
If using a cane instead of walker is important to you...
Or getting to the toilet without assistance...
Or beating your competition with the edge you needed to enhance your training regime...
This device is priceless after all the positive experiences you will enjoy.
