Sit & Reach

 

The graph below shows the comparisons between using the Sit and Reach box and the SpeedFlexer.

A study of 32 students – check student number 3, 16 and 25.

Student number 3 achieved 20 in the Sit and Reach, which is excellent, yet when you measure it on the SpeedFlexer he had only 65 on his left leg and 85 on his right leg which is a massive imbalance of 20.

Student number 16 was the best at Sit and Reach at 28, he has only 75 on his left leg using the SpeedFlexer. He balanced but was still short of the magic number 90.

Look at student number 25; who was quite good on the SpeedFlexer but was way down on Sit and Reach at just 12.

SpeedFlexer gives a reading of each leg in isolation, and shows any imbalance.

Imbalances is the biggest cause of injuries.

To increase your speed, you need to increase your flexibility.

Ned Burns

Ned is the creator of the SpeedFlexer. He has worked with various schools and sports organisations in Ireland.

One of the main problems he noticed was the lack of flexibility in children, teenagers and adults. He identified the need to accurately record how flexible people's legs are. This has resulted in the SpeedFlexer.
