Company Summary

Modern Movement (MM) is pioneering a new method for measuring and improving balance. The patent-pending M-Board 2s integrates a smartphone app which tracks movement. It has three modes: Play, Train, and Measure. This system functions as a game controller, a fitness tool, or a physical therapy device. MM’s original analog products have already sold over 2,400 units through a network of 100 retailers, and will be debuting in REI this fall.
