Frequently Asked Questions
Which roll is suitable for which body weight?
There are no specific correlations. Rather, the roll you select depends on your individual pain or sensitivity and how the roll will be used.
BLACKROLL® MED = suitable for beginners, pain sensitive persons, and highly tensed body parts (Please note the product information for this roll!)
BLACKROLL® STANDARD = suitable for beginners to advanced users with an average pain sensitivity
BLACKROLL® PRO = suitable for advanced users or professional athletes, very strong massage effect
Is there any difference between the BLACKROLL® STANDARD in black and the BLACKROLL® STANDARD in other color combinations? No, there is no difference in terms of size or density. Only the colors are different.
When should I use the BLACKROLL® BALL and when the BLACKROLL® DUOBALL? BALLS (8 cm, 12 cm): for a punctual and intense massage of the neck, arms, chest and feet. DUOBALL 8 cm: targeted and intense massage of the neck and upper back along the spine, also effective on the arms, chest and Achilles tendon. DUOBALL 12 cm: Basically, it can be used in manner that is similar to a normal roll. However, the focus is on a targeted massage of the neck and the entire back along the spine and of the calves.
How can I assemble the BLACKROLL® set most easily?
The easiest way of combing the BLACKROLL® MINI with the BLACKROLL® (STANDARD / MED / GROOVE / GROOVE PRO / PRO) is to use a few drops of oil on one end of the MINI. Then place the BLACKROLL® MINI at an angle in the hole of the BLACKROLL® and push it in circles into the larger roll. Please note: do not repeat these steps too often, since the material around the opening of the BLACKROLL® might become porous.
When should BLACKROLL® products not be used?
In principle there are three clear contraindications which rule out the use of BLACKROLL®:
- Acute pain
In case of 'soft' or weaker contraindications it needs to be decided individually whether the use of BLACKROLL®® can (or should be allowed to) take place.
Soft contraindications are applied to (for example):
- Spinal injuries / spinal disk degeneration
- Intake of anticoagulant ("blood thinning") medicine
- Rheumatic diseases
- Joint replacements
- Tumour diseases
In addition to these contraindications the following contraindications should be considered for the VYPER:
- Rotary vertigo, positional vertigo, motion kinetosis
- Acute migraine
- Gallstones, kidney stones
- Cardiovascular disorders
In general we ask you to bear in mind that all BLACKROLL® products are used at one's own risk. We recommend you to consult your physiotherapist, manual therapist, massage therapist or medical specialist, when in doubt/or when you experience strong pain - after the self massage - or in case of recurring injuries.
