review by Christy Drever, Physiotherapist
A few reasons why the MOBO board is so great: From a physio standpoint, I highly recommend the MOBO board as both a preventative and a treatment tool to help those improve or overcome ankle / foot stability issues. What I love about the MOBO board is the cut-out that prevents you from over gripping with your little toes which helps train the use of your big toe which acts as a big stabilizer for the arch of your foot. The MOBO board promotes proprioception which is a phenomenon that helps your body’s ability to sense its whereabouts in space such as location, movement and action: something that is very important for trail runners. The MOBO board rocks in a direction that also trains your body to learn how to be stable throughout a range of motion that is specific to your foot. I use the MOBO board personally as a training tool to help better prepare my body before hitting the trails.
