The disc consists of two discs, which are connected by an axle with a washer. Steel balls are located between them inside the treadmill machine. The entire structure allows for rotational movements that have a beneficial effect on the figure and internal organs. The benefits of exercising on this simulator are great, because it contributes to:

Many discs have a special relief surface that additionally affects the entire body. This type of acupressure has a general healing effect, has a beneficial effect on the foot, because, as you know, it is on it that there are points that are responsible for the work of important organs. Additional stimulation of these points improves the functioning of the body as a whole, gives it tone and vigor.
We also note that the health disc is convenient due to its compactness, which allows it to be used in rooms of any size, even in the kitchen or at the desktop in the office during lunchtime.
When practicing on a disc, the following rules must be observed.
1. Drink a glass of water before exercising to get good results.
2. Place the disc on the floor or any other non-slip surface before exercising.
3. To prevent dizziness, keep an eye on the position of your head, avoid sudden movements.
4. To maintain balance, it is necessary that there are objects next to you that you can lean on (table, chair, etc.).
You determine the load yourself. Remember that the more vigorously you exercise, the more calories you burn. It is advisable to stand on the disc in socks. The upper disk moves in a circle, while the lower one remains stationary. Bend your knees slightly. For children, 4-5 turns will be enough, for adolescents it will be increased to 6-7, for boys it is 8-9 turns, for adults - up to 10 turns or more. It is also good to use the health disc as an independent trainer. The main thing in classes is regularity. Each day should be set aside for exercise for 15-20 minutes. By the way, in order to simply cheer up after a long sitting, relieve stress or improve mood, it is enough to work out for only 2-3 minutes.
Please note that people over 60 need to be wary of rotational exercises, since they cause drastic changes in cerebral circulation, it is necessary to limit the speed of their implementation. And in case of violations of the functions of the organs of balance, exercises on the simulator can be performed only after consultation with a specialist.
