Why are BLACKROLL products more expensive that alternatives?
In fact whilst BLACKROLL® products may be slightly more expensive that alternatives we offer far better overall value for money. With over 10 years R&D and improvements as a result of customer feedback BLACKROLL® products are now the leading choice of not only key teams and coaches in the world of performance but also in the world of therapy, medical and health. We pride ourselves on the design and durability of our prodcut which we know will deliver long-lasting results for you. Alternative products are, in the main, not really fit for purpose and so provide a false-economy. On the other hand some of of closest competitors actually charge a higher price-point.

When should BLACKROLL® products not be used?
IN PRINCIPLE THERE ARE THREE CLEAR CONTRAINDICATIONS WHICH RULE OUT THE USE OF BLACKROLL®:
- Acute pain
These contraindications are applicable to nearly all acute traumas, respectively diseases (e.g. fractures, thromboses, acute lumbago, etc).
In case of 'soft' or weaker contraindications it needs to be decided individually whether the use of BLACKROLL®® can (or should be allowed to) take place.
Soft contraindications are applied to (for example):
Spinal injuries / spinal disk degeneration
Intake of anticoagulant ("blood thinning") medicine
In addition to these contraindications the following contraindications should be considered for using Resistance Bands and Multi-Bands:
Rotary vertigo, positional vertigo, motion kinetosis
Gallstones, kidney stones
If one or more of these contraindications apply to your situation, please first consult with your doctor or therapist.
In general we ask you to bear in mind that all BLACKROLL® products are used at one's own risk. We recommend you to consult your physiotherapist, manual therapist, massage therapist or medical specialist, when in doubt/or when you experience strong pain - after the self massage - or in case of recurring injuries.
