  • A Training Platform to Improve Foot Form & Function

    The BlackBoard Basic training platform offers you the ability to build a stronger, more capable foot by honing specific foot movement patterns, mobilizing, activating, and stabilizing key foot and lower leg structures, and improving neuronal connections. The two platforms that, along with the three BlackBar training bars, make up the BlackBoard Basic are able to move independently, permitting subtle movement patterns of the forefoot and rearfoot that help support targeted activation and the development of foot and lower limb muscle groups. The BlackBoard Basic helps you establish and integrate these important movement patterns into your everyday life, with the goal of enhancing the quality of your physical activity and your mobility more broadly.

    Clever Design, Easy to Use, Powerful Results

    The interconnected FootBoard and HeelBoard are the central parts of this cleverly designed tool, and the BlackBars are used to adjust them. Simply place the BlackBars under each board so that specific regions of your foot are triggered through different tilting and torsional movements. These movements help stimulate the natural function of your foot and lower limb joints and can be helpful as both a supportive or preventative approach to either rehabilitate your feet or build upon an already solid foot foundation. The minimalist design of this powerful platform means that working out with a BlackBoard requires no extra space, and you can use your BlackBoard at home, at work, or on the road to build more robust feet and healthier movement patterns.

    Works Well With Other Helpful Natural Footgear

    The BlackBoard Basic training platform is a standalone tool for supporting natural foot health; however, its impact can be enhanced by incorporating other BlackBoard products into your foot training routine, including ToeBands and the Meta Trigger, as well as the PerformanceBars extension set. Additionally, and to achieve optimal synergistic foot health benefits, consider pairing your BlackBoard Basic with other helpful footgear, such as men’s and women’s foot-healthy footwear, Correct Toes toe spacers, Injinji toe socks, Pedag metatarsal pads, and Naboso insoles. Each BlackBoard Basic training platform comes with one BlackBoard, one long BlackBar, two short BlackBars, and a detailed user’s manual that shows all the various device permutations and how to get the very most out of your BlackBoard.
