Balance Board

Try This:
What’s Going On?
So…


Hold the hand grips and balance yourself on the board. Let go of the hand grips and see how long you can keep your balance.


More than you might expect! Every time you are about to fall, your body automatically tries to regain balance. Tiny hairs in your inner ear move every time you do. These hairs signal your brain when you are off balance. Your brain then sends instructions to the correct muscles to keep you from falling.

Without the organ of balance in your ears, you would not be able to deal with the forces of gravity and motion. You would not be able to stand up, walk, or tell whether your car is speeding up or slowing down!

Plataforma de Equilibrio

Pruebe Esto:
Qué Sucede?
Entonces. . .

Sujete las barras y establezca su equilibrio sobre la plataforma. Suelte las barras para ver cúanto tiempo puede mantener su equilibrio.

Más de lo que usted imagina! Cada vez que usted está por caerse, su cuerpo trata de reestablecer su equilibrio automáticamente. Diminutos vellos en su oído interno registran sus movimientos. Estos vellos le avisan al cerebro cuando usted pierde el equilibrio. Entonces su cerebro envía instrucciones a determinados músculos para corregir su posición y evitar que usted se caiga.

Sin este órgano de equilibrio en sus oídos, no podría enfrentar las fuerza de gravedad y movimiento. ¡No podría mantenerse de pie, caminar o detectar cuando su carro está acelerando o disminuyendo la velocidad!
