It’s not often a world famous golf teacher works for free, but David Leadbetter believes in the Juvent Pro so much that’s exactly what he’s doing. Leadbetter raved about the Juvent Pro to me during a recent dinner in Bradenton, Fla.
So what exactly is the Juvent Pro? Basically it’s a device that uses mild, computer controlled impacts to improve the golfers balance and stability. Originally created to treat osteoporosis and other skeletal conditions, Juvent Pro also stimulates the type IIa muscle fibers or “fast twitch” muscles so important to precision control required by professional athletes.
In addition, a Juvent session helps the healing and replacement of bone tissue and has been shown to help circulation, heal and maintain healthy tissue, and aid recovery from bone loss and joint damage.
It all sounds too good to be true, but once you give the Juvent Pro a try, you’ll find it’s all true, indeed.
Manufactured in the U.S. by Juvent Sports, a division of Regenerative Technologies Corporation, it uses mild, computer controlled impacts to improve the golfers balance and stability. All of which can have a positive effect on one’s golf game by enhancing weight transfer, strength, balance, stabilizing the mechanics of the swing, and lessoning joint pain which creates an overall feeling of better health and well-being.
“The golf swing is all about mobility,’’ Leadbetter said. “I think Juvent is really going to help people not only improve their golf game but feel a whole lot better about themselves. I’m really excited about it.”
Leadbetter said Juvent Pro is especially effective with “baby boomer” golfers who want to play more golf but find it hard to move and make a good swing. Other leading golfers using Juvent Pro include LPGA star Suzanne Petterson, top amateur Arlene McKitrick, and European pro Paolo Quirici.
Juvent Pro uses Dynamic Motion Therapy (DMT) technology, a patented micro-impact system. The user – who does nothing more than stand on the device for 10-20 minutes a day – feels mild vibrations called Low Magnitude Mechanical Stimulation (LMMS) enter through the soles of the feet an move up through the entire skeleton. These micro-impacts stimulate the bones much the way light-impact exercise does, helping in bone health and healing.
Priced at $3,495 per unit, Juvent Pro can be purchased by individuals for home use as well as by country clubs, gyms, and other fitness facilities for use by their members.
