MSD-Band is a premium quality, low powder latex resistive exercise band.
Same Colours and Quality as Theraband
MSD resistance bands can be used for resistive exercise providing positive as well as negative force on the muscles and improves the range of motion, the strength and the cooperation of the muscle groups. The different resistance levels are determined by the thickness of the band.
MSD-Band Resistance Levels
- Yellow – Thin
- Red – Medium
- Green – Heavy
- Blue – Extra Heavy
- Black – Special Heavy
MSD-Band Resistive Exercise Band Production
The production of MSD-Band starts deep in the humid forests of Malaysia, where the best and strongest trees provide the natural latex rubber that will be processed from a milky fluid to your preferred resistive exercise band.
When a tree is 5–6 years old, harvesting can begin: incisions are being made orthogonally in the bark of the tree, just deep enough to tap the latex vessels without harming the tree’s growth. The fluid is collected in small buckets, a process known as rubber tapping.
Only the best quality latex is being selected to go to the MSD-Band factory. There, production starts under the constant supervision of a team of scientists, ensuring an immaculate product quality. Latex sheets are produced, powdered, washed, dried and cut to the exact width.
Each batch of latex sheeting that is produced, is subject to the meticulous inspection of our scientists by a series of laboratory experiments: colour-coding, dryness, tensile strength, tearing resistance, snapping resistance, … During the rolling process, a 100% visual inspection is being conducted on both sides of the band. Indeed, before leaving the factory, every MSD-band has been completely analysed, checked and examined to ensure maximum product quality.
Did you know that rubber trees combat greenhouse gases and thereby slowing down global warming? Additionally, latex harvesting helps prevent deforestation… “This is why we are not afraid to use the words ‘premium quality’ when referring to your MSD-Band”.
