Advantages

Range3D incorporates every feature needed to yield results, compared with stretching unaided or using low-tech equipment.

Factor Unaided or low-tech stretching Range3D
Exercise position Often uncomfortable Comfortable and relaxed
Body Insufficiently stabilised Fully supported and stable
Performance of exercise Can be incorrect/ineffective Stretch is correctly applied
Range of motion feedback None Accurately measured
Safety Risk of doing harm Secure, controlled movement from neutral
Group conditioning and monitoring Routine usually random and subjective Standardised, reproducible, measurable regimen
Rehabilitation Not always appropriate Very suitable
Academic use Too much variation Also functions as research instrument
