TheraBands unique system of colour coded resistance levels makes progressive training easy. There are eight levels from Tan (2.4 lb) to gold (14.2lb) that offer progressive increase in resistance. This system makes it easy to prescribe tools for rehabilitation and track a patient’s progress.
Elastic resistance does not rely on gravity the same way free weights however both elastic and isotonic resistance offer similar strength training as they activate similar muscles systems. TheraBands resistance bands offer the same benefits of free weights of similar rating without the hassle of storing heavy weights. It is important to remember that the resistance in pounds is measured at maximum stretch, roughly twice the resting length of the product.
