Abstract
(EN)
An exercise apparatus comprises an oblong platform (10;210) and at least one detachable convex instability member (30;70;90;230) projecting from the lower surface (12) of the platform (10). The platform is of sufficient length for a person to perform whole body exercises, eg in a prone, supine or semi-supine position, on the platform. The person exercising on the platform (10) faces the challenge of attempting to maintain the platform (10) in a horizontal orientation as it rocks or wobbles during the exercise, thus improving the balancing skills of the user. The apparatus may be provided in kit form with a plurality of interchangeable detachable convex instability members (30;70;90;230) of different forms, shapes and sizes to provide different balancing challenges of varying degrees of difficulty. The apparatus or kit may also include one or more exercise aids or attachments, eg bars (52) and exercise balls (250) mountable on the upper surface (11;211) of the platform (10;210).
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un appareil pour exercice physique comprenant une plate-forme oblongue (10, 210) et au moins un organe d'instabilité convexe amovible (30, 70, 90, 230) dépassant de la face inférieure de la plate-forme (10). La longueur de cette plate-forme suffit à l'utilisateur pour des exercices impliquant la totalité du corps, notamment en position de couché abdominal, d'appui dorsal ou semi-dorsal, sur la plate-forme. Le but de l'exercice est de tenter de conserver la plate-forme (10) en position horizontale malgré ses mouvements de balancement ou de vobulation, ce qui permet à l'utilisateur de perfectionner son sens de l'équilibre. L'appareil peut se présenter sous forme de kit avec une pluralité d'organes d'instabilité convexes amovibles interchangeables (30, 70, 90, 230) de différentes natures, formes et dimensions, de façon à proposer différents exercices d'équilibre de divers niveaux de difficulté. L'appareil ou le kit peut également comporter un ou plusieurs accessoires ou agrès tels que des barres (52) et des ballons (250) se montant sur la face supérieure (11, 211) de la plate-forme (10, 210).
