Footbar & Springbar

Revo Adjustment System™

The revolutionary Revo Adjustment System™ gives you the greatest flexibility and enables you to create the ergonomically correct position for every user. The Revo combines 2 radically redesigned components: the locking Footbar and the 5-position Springbar. The system easily adapts your Reformer to better fit the needs of the user's size, range of movement, and ability.

Revo Footbar® (1)

  • Locking footbar with four positions, including down.
  • Diameter (2.5"/6.3cm) with padded non-slip cover.

U.S. Patent Nos. 6338704, 7288054, 7163500.

Revo Springbar™ (2)

  • Carriage and Springbar are integrated - moving the Springbar moves the carriage and keeps the springs in neutral tension.
  • Five carriage stop positions provide 12" (30.5cm) of adjustability from carriage to footbar, creating the ergonomically correct position for every user. For short to average height clients, use positions #1or #2. For taller clients, or those with a limited range of motion, use positions #3 - #5.

U.S. Patent Nos. 6120425, 7288051, 7288053, 7163500.

Classic Footbar / No-Roll Springbar

No-Roll Springbar

  • The oval shape of the No-Roll Springbar makes it a safe choice; it won't roll downward and springs stay connected. Easy to use, the hooks remain upright.
  • 2 Springbar positions (gears).
  • Optional carriage extension and return stoppers.
  • Older Balanced Body Reformers can be retrofitted with the No-Roll Springbar.
