THE CREATORS BEHIND BLACKBOARD
Their idea didn’t come out of the blue.
Sports scientist Gregor Stumpf and physiotherapist Lars Grandjot met while working together at a physiotherapy office in Cologne. They would notice on a daily basis that patients’ muscles and ankles weren’t in the best of shape. Lars could relate to this based on personal experience. After twisting his ankle one day, he suffered for years, unable to find a permanent solution. So, they started to look for a new treatment method, one that could activate and mobilize the entire arch of a foot. After two years of working closely with athletes, patients, and orthopedics, gathering experiences and fine-tuning their concept, they developed the idea of BlackBoard. Their therapeutic success proved that they were on the right track. Since then, the BlackBoard has enjoyed success among therapists, because it offers them entirely new approaches to help patients with long-term pain. Even athletes gladly accepted training with a BlackBoard, so they could gain more strength and agility.
