Body Massage Tools

Muscle Relief

RAD Co-Founders Mike Mallory—a biomechanics expert—and Dan McIntosh—a professional triathlete—redesigned traditional body massage tools to be more effective.

Their ergonomic massagers are made to target muscles and soft tissues more easily. By slowly and steadily rolling them over or under different parts of your body, you can help free up movement and even clean out toxins.

With several tools to choose from, you can target any spot that needs attention with as much pressure as you like. The Roller is compact
enough to take anywhere—it’s two conjoined rubber balls that work best if used on the floor or against a wall. The Helix adds an important indented design to the typical cylindrical roller, maneuvering around the spine and bones more easily. The Rod is a thin, coated roller that promotes myofascial release. You can even pair the Rod with the Helix to reach your entire back like a big, massaging rolling pin.

Whether you want to relieve everyday knots or tired muscles from exercise, RAD’s tools will help roll it all away.

    @Kelly Hi Kelly. They're only available separately right now, but they work great as a team!

    I have an ongoing problem with a back rib getting displaced. Will this help?

    @Deborah Deborah, it can help to release the muscles around the spine, which can help loosen up cranky ribs and keep them in place. We have a lot of folks the use the RAD Roller for this. Keep in mind, I'm not a doctor, I just play one on the Internet, so make sure to consult your local health professional.

    Thanks for your question!

    Would these tools be effective at breaking up trigger points in back muscles? Would one be more effective for that purpose than the other?

    @Greg absolutely!....we think of the RAD roller as a point release tool, where the helix and rod are better for 'muscle flushing'.....it will also help open up and normalize you posture which should help cool down the muscles and relax those trigger points.

    Happy rolling!

    Does the rad roller compare with the density and hardness of a lacrosse ball or more like a tennis ball?

    Curious of this same question....

    @Doris good question! It's softer than lacrosse ball, and harder than a tennis ball, which is what we feel is 'just right' for self myofascial therapy. Tennis balls can be too soft, and lacrosse balls can cause the muscles to tense up because they're so hard...

    Hey there, have any suggestions/solutions for working out leg cramps? hamstrings all the way to toes? Thanks!

    @Stuart Yes, the RAD Rod is great for that! Those muscles are very large in general, and needs the small surfacce area of the rod to help dig in!

    Next question... just ordered the rod and would like to add the Helix massage tool to the order (vs. paying for shipping twice). Could you help me figure out how to do that please?

    Hope you like the combo!

    How does this compare to the MOBILITYWOD BATTLESTAR ?

  • Mike

    @olga Olga....Battlestar is built for a different application, but in general, smaller surface area = more pressure available. The ROD has a very thin profile than not only allows you to dig deep into muscles, but allows greater access to 'smaller' areas, like the back of the neck, just below the skull, where lots of folks tend to hold tension.
