As expected, this is an economy model & smaller than the rectangular wooden board used in physical therapy. Still, it was low cost & allows me to work on strengthen my ankle range of motion after surgery. Even after a few weeks' use, I can still balance much better on the board at my therapist, so I think the larger board would be more beneficial and less frustrating. A fair price for an item I hope to use for a short time. If I had to use it every day, indefinitely, I would have upgraded to a better board.
For the price, it does what it needs to but the quality is not that great. The middle is hollow with a piece of plastic over the hole (the blue logo). If you step directly on the logo, it will depress and you won't be able to get it out. For reference, I'm about 165lbs so it's not like I was putting excessive weight on the thing. This definitely is an "economy" model, so if you just need a cheap board, it will be fine.
I purchased this item for my brother for Christmas. As soon as he took it out of the box and stepped on it the blue disc in the middle pushed through on one edge. It's just not a very good quality item... but for $$$ I guess you can't expect much.

Got this item for my daughter. She uses it for ankle strength, core work and balance. We keep it in the living room and she'll hop on while waiting for me, watching tv or just for a couple of minutes here and there. The price was fair, quality great. Just what we were looking for.

This is a great board. Strong, easy to use, and it does the job. My son got it for Christmas I thought great to keep him busy while gaming or watching TV etc., but I like it so much that I am getting more use out of it I think. It works my legs and lower body (you can feel it!)... great for the days I can't get out for my walk! We really like it! Hope this helps!
For the price of this board, it is a good value and seems well made. It is entirely made of plastic so not as nice as a wooden board but it does function well for exercising weak ankles without being too expensive. It's not an item that I use every day so the plastic does not bother me but might be a problem for someone who uses it more frequently.
