EP Products Multi-Roller, Tandem Roller - Item #: MTL100 Can apply the desired pressure.
Self Myofascial Release using foam rolls is a technique used by physical therapists and athletes to apply pressure through rolling out trigger points or sore spots which are causing pain. The goal is to manipulate fascia back to a more functional position to eliminate pain and to help with stretching. Imagine damaged fascia being wrinkled aluminum foil and the foam roller being a rolling pin where you attempt to roll everything back to its original place.
Myofascial Massage Therapy is a massage where deep tissue massage is used to find and break up trigger points with techniques to mash and stretch the fascia back into place.
Many physical therapists will work with patients to put a program together for Myofascial Release therapy in their office along with Self Myofascial Release at home.
• Easy to balance on. • Can apply the desired pressure. • Two rolls hit multiple areas at once. • Quick release pins to adjust distances. • High density 6 inch foam rollers have been determined by therapists to be best for Myofascial Release. • 17” in length makes it easy for travel. • Can be used as a single roller.
Traditional single foam rollers can be hard to balance on and can apply too much pressure making it hard to perform the desired myofascial release. Multiple foam rollers connected together helps with balance and allows one to maneuver on the adjacent rolls to establish the preferred pressures for myofascial release and massage. This foam roller system can be used to hit 1 or 2 places at once.
Multiple foam rollers are easier to balance and maneuver the body on.
The adjacent rollers make it easier to establish the desired pressures for myofascial release.
Two or three rollers hit multiple areas at once allowing to manipulate myofascial release and massage surrounding areas.
Quick release pins makes it easy to adjust the distances between the foam rollers for different exercises.
Hand Pins allow the user to perform some of the difficult floor exercises either standing up or sitting down.
Hand Pins allow therapist or another person to roll out a patient or partner.
Since the rollers are 17” in length it is easier to travel with than the 36” foam roller.
Can be used as a single roller.
High density six inch single foam rollers have proven to be very effective in producing myofascial release to reduce pain. Foam rollers have also proven to be a very effective method with massaging and stretching.
When using the single roller we found performing some exercises were hard to do. Balancing on a single roller proved to be difficult and the single roller sometimes applied an unnecessary amount of pressure.
The Multi-Roller takes it a step further. High density six inch single foam rollers are connected together making it easier to balance and effectively perform myofascial release; at the same time massaging the surrounding areas.
The concept of the Multi-Roller is based on simple physics. More weight concentrated into one area applies more pressure. When weight can be dispersed to multiple areas then there is not as much pressure concentrated on one single point. Using the adjacent rollers allows the user to disperse their weight and manipulate how much pressure they want to apply to certain areas of the body. For those that want more pressure more weight should be manipulated to one roller than the other.
The Tandem Roller, having two foam rollers, is typically more effective for myofascial release. The Tri-Roller, having three foam rollers, is typically more effective for massage. However, each user has different pressure thresholds so one may desire the Tri-Roller to perform myfascial release.
