TYE4®

Tye4 is a unique wearable resistance/assistance harness developed by the Pilates PhysicalMind Institute.  It functions like a Pilates Reformer machine… perfect for conditioning but inaccessible to the majority of athletes.

RESISTANCE - Tye4 provides up to 20 lbs of resistance through a full range of motion, targeting and firing the small stabilizing muscles around the joints. It facilitates rehab fitness and strengthens the body in proper posture, as the harness lifts the sternum.

FLEXIBILITY - Tye4 provides a closed kinetic chain on feet and hands.  Conditioning this way opens up the joints allowing increased oxygen flow… resulting in joint healing and recovery.  It also allows for individual PNF stretching and a unique muscle firing and stretch pattern, resulting in rapid increase in flexibility.

ASSISTANCE - Tye4 is used to assist areas that frequently get over trained, like neck and hip flexors.   

 
Tye4® embodies ‘tensegrity’- a balance between tension and compression, between push and pull.
