We could all benefit from a little balance in our hectic worlds. Lotus Balance Boards are U.S. designed, created, and produced using FSC certified lumbers. urban recovered materials, and recycled products. This gorgeous bamboo model is intended as an exercise trainer, off season conditioner, gross motor developer, and proprioception (how your own limbs are oriented in space) strengthener. As far as the kids, well they can use them for plain old fun.
