OpentraX Helps Participants Bilateral Coordination

[column width=”2/3″]Whether you’re young, old, or somewhere in between, you need it. Bilateral Coordination. Sharpening this is well worth your time and something we regularly practice here at OpentraX. Keep reading to find out more…

Bilateral coordination is the ability to perform movements on both sides of the body in a coordinated and organised way. It is an important developmental skill as it is used in everyday tasks such as walking🚶‍♀️eating 🍎 dressing 🤵and playing. 🎾

It it indicates that the communication between the left and right side of the brain is effective. If there are bilateral coordination issues then people are likely to have difficulties with fine motor coordination, gross motor coordination and visual-motor tasks. Something we improve over time for many of our participants.[/column_text][/column][column width=”1/3″][single_image image=”15331″ img_size=”large” style=”box_rounded” css_animation=”fadeInRight”][/column][/row][column width=”1/3″][single_image image=”15332″ img_size=”large” css_animation=”fadeInLeft”][/column][column width=”2/3″]There are 3 types of bilateral coordination:

Symmetrical- when both hands or feet are performing the same movement (throwing, catching, jumping) 🤾‍♀️🤽‍♂️

Reciprocal – when both sides of the body move in a consistent and rhythmic movement pattern (bike riding, walking or swimming) 🏊‍♂️🚴‍♂️

Asymmetrical – when both sides of the body are working but doing different tasks or movements (writing, playing an instrument, tying shoelaces) ✍️🎸[/column_text][/column][/row][column width=”2/3″]At OpentraX we will be doing lots of reciprocal movement on our bikes which will help to develop the neurological pathways and communication between the left and right side of the brain 🧠 🗣 This will be beneficial for children that are in the process of developing their motor skills or anyone that struggles with coordinating movements.

There are many other benefits of reciprocal movement such as greater muscular endurance 💪 improved joint mobility and muscle flexibility 🦵 and increased aerobic capacity 🫁

If you’re interested in improving your child’s motor skills and coordination, get in contact with OpentraX and our team of very knowledgeable Exercise Physiologists will start them on their journey!! 🤩[/column_text][/column][column width=”1/3″][single_image image=”15113″ img_size=”large”][/column][/row][row css=”.custom_1637731074508{background-color: #21232b !important;}”][edgtf_button size=”large” type=”solid” target=”_self” icon_pack=”” font_weight=”700″ text=”See OpentraX Programs” link=”https://opentrax.com.au//lp-courses/” color=”#00e056″ hover_color=”#ffffff” background_color=”#21232b” hover_background_color=”#00e056″ hover_border_color=”#ffffff” font_size=”25″][/column][/row]
