Olli and Kirsi Rahnasto – the developers of OLKIControl
OLKIControl is the brainchild of Olli and Kirsi Rahnasto, a couple with a keen interest in sports and physical exercise. As a young man, Olli Rahnasto was engaged in a wide range of sports until he finally took up tennis on a full-time basis. He is one of Finland’s most successful tennis players of all times. He was ranked among the top 100 ATP players in the world and served as the captain of Finland’s Davis Cup team for several years.
Olli Rahnasto has completed the professional qualification of a tennis coach and worked as the head coach of the Finnish Tennis Association and as a coach in Germany and Norway. Currently he is involved in a wide range of sports from coaching to event organising.
Mrs Kirsi Rahnasto was a professional dancer who graduated from the Ballet School of the Finnish National Opera. She has also served as a dance and exercise group instructor for people of various ages. Kirsi Rahnasto has been closely involved in Olli’s team both during his career as a professional player and coach as well as in the various sports projects.
OLKIControl helps understand how to improve your core stability control
For several years, Olli and Kirsi Rahnasto used to engage in a wide range of body control exercises. In the course of these activities, they realised what was the key to efficient body control. Next, they began to think about the ways in which people could easily improve and develop body control on their own. After ten years of research and testing, they were able to introduce the OLKIControl exerciser for improved core stability control. The first prototype was completed in 2012.
Originally, OLKIControl was primarily intended for athletes. However, a pilot study demonstrated that OLKIControl was also ideal for helping people with back problems and preventing back pain among sedentary office workers.
Moreover, OLKIControl helps elderly people maintain and improve their sense of balance and thus even helps to prevent falling accidents and injuries. OLKIControl is a truly innovative aid in physical treatment and for use at care homes as part of the overall efforts to promote physical fitness. Athletes and those engaged in physical exercise are encouraged to buy a personal OLKIControl. If so, it is important that you start using the device under the supervision of an OLKIControl representative, physiotherapist, personal trainer or a coach familiar with OLKIControl to ensure that you gain the full benefit of the device.
