What equipment is good for balance exercises?

Beginning Balance

For beginning balance exercise, stand on one foot. Extend the time you can stand on one foot, and lift the non-supporting leg higher. The next step can be to advance to a wobble board. Go through the full range of exercises on the wobble board with two feet, then carefully switch to one foot. You can go on to sport specific devices, or do more balance exercises with an exercise ball.
