Konnector® Reformer

A brilliant creation to cross-train the body

Description

For the next level in Reformer work, the Konnector® Reformer delivers an extraordinary experience: Studio Reformer® with Revo Footbar® plus the addition of the innovative Konnector rope system.

Developed by and created in collaboration with Viktor Uygan of Konnect Pilates, the patented Konnector® makes Pilates more versatile (and fun) without changing it.

Konnector® Reformer

The Konnector Reformer includes an innovative, single-rope pulley system with loops for all four limbs. Konnector enables independent, simultaneous movement of both arms and legs. You experience constant proprioceptive feedback through the single rope, facilitating full-body integration and stronger core activation in dynamic new ways.

  • Exciting new functional movement possibilities moving all four limbs independently.
  • Increases a client’s awareness of imbalances and asymmetries.
  • Can perform all traditional Reformer repertoire.
  • One-rope pulley system with loops for all four limbs.
  • New Tri Loops (4), also a collaboration between Viktor Uygan and Balanced Body, have a versatile third “hidden” loop to provide support for a full range of foot positions.

Konnector® Lite Reformer

The Konnector Lite Reformer is a simplified version of the one-rope pulley system. It enables independent movement of two limbs rather than four.

  • Increases a client’s awareness of imbalances and asymmetries.
  • Can perform all traditional Reformer repertoire.
  • Includes Tri Loops (2).

Choosing a Frame Height

Considerations for choosing the height of your Reformer:

  • 14" (36cm): Our standard height. Great for all exercises including standing work, and for facilities with low ceilings.
  • 18" (46cm): Less bending for instructors when working with clients, and good accessibility for wheelchair transfers.
  • 24" (61cm): Easiest working height for clinicians and manual therapy. Good for clients challenged by getting on and off a lower Reformer. More challenging for standing work.

51 upholstery colors:

Heavy-duty viny in 51 colors. Of that total, 9 are standard/free, and an additional 42 custom colors are available (additional charges apply). Try our Color Tool and get more information here, or email us for a sample color palette.

Compatibility

Konnector is compatible with all Balanced Body wood Reformers that have wood risers and removable shoulder rests. It cannot be used, however, on a Reformer that has a Tower.
