Another All Day Stretch ADS Idea
Here is an item I threw together from some materials I had laying around. It consists of blue, soft, large silicone sleeve and stealth cap from Monkeybar, an extension spring and a leg strap. The spring, when stretched from 1/8 to 1/2 its length exerts a force of 2-3lbs. respectively. I can walk in it as long as I adjust the rope attachment so that tension is not much more then 2lbs. More than that and there is a possibility of the cap pulling out of the sleeve. There is some slight debate here whether a spring device will toughen the ligaments because it has intermittant stretch and relax versus a constant hanging weight. That might be true but I don’t walk around much with it. However if you are sitting around watching TV or reading, you can keep it at a constant tension by how much you extend your leg. It is very covert compared to an extender.
