The classical MED is also available in a length of 45 cm. This is a top request from Pilates trainers and therapists who want to be able to offer their patients a larger support surface. The hardness and stability as well the broad range of applications of the MED in sports and therapy are exactly the same. With the MED 45, you can palpably increase your muscular elasticity and performance with little effort and simple exercises. With 20% lower hardness, the MED 45 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 wish a less intensive massage.
Please note: We do not recommend doing balance exercises while standing on the MED 45. The BLACKROLL® MED 45 is recommended for body weight only up to 75 kg. Heavier people can reinforce the roller with two MINI foam roller.
The possible applications of BLACKROLL® offer a whole range of advantages. The option of individually varying the pressure by appropriate relaxation techniques permits a broad therapeutic spectrum. Extensive tests in patients have shown outstanding results.

We have compiled a variety of exercises with the STANDARD foam roller. You can also perform these exercises with the softer and longer MED 45 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.
