With the MED foam roller, you can palpably increase your muscular elasticity and performance with little effort and simple exercises. With 20% lower hardness, the MED foam roller allows a softer self-myofascial treatment – just the thing for gentle use in therapy, for example, for people with lower body weight or simply when you want a less intensive massage.
Please note: We recommend against doing balance exercises while standing on this roller. The BLACKROLL® MED is recommended for body weight only up to 75 kg.
There are always multiple factors involved in any pain. The ultimate goal of any success treatment is to find the true causes and to correct them, instead of using pain medication for too long, primarily fighting symptoms. The cause of the pain can often be in completely different places from where it is perceived. It is essential for patients to understand that the entire body is connected together by myofascial chains and meridians along different pathways. To regulate these structures, I particularly like to use the BLACKROLL® MED, the small BLACKROLL® BALL, and the BLACKROLL® DUOBALL in supporting roles, which the patient can then use outstandingly well for exercises at home."

We have compiled a variety of exercises with the STANDARD foam roller. You can also perform these exercises with the softer MED foam roller. However, since the material of the MED is softer, you should not perform balance exercises while standing on the roller. In addition, we recommend the MED only up to 75kg body weight.
