Trigger Point Therapy (tptherapy.com) has developed The Grid, a foam massage roller that mimics the feel of a massage with a human hand, allowing you to tailor the feel from broad (palm) to focused (finger tip). The Grid uses less EVA foam, which TP Therapy says will allow it to retain its shape better without breaking down, making it good for daily use.
Their “Distrodensity Foam Zones” let you control the level and intensity of the massage, and they claim it offers some of the benefits of Myofascial Release Therapy. It can be used on its own or in conjunction with their new SMRT-CORE DVD, which combines core strength and stability training with self-massage.
It measures 13″ long by 5″ in diameter and retails for 39.99.
