THERABAND® has always been considered the industry leader for resistance bands, and they now have the testing to prove it. After extensive third-party testing, THERABAND non-latex resistance bands have been proven to last more than five times longer than the next leading competitor, and the Trusted Progression System® has proven to have consistent pull force.
In this article, we’ll go through the tests, what they mean for your practice, and some THERABAND recommendations for you.
THERABAND non-latex resistance bands have been proven to last longer and perform better than the next leading competitor’s resistance band.
The Trusted Progression System is a consistent, reliable progression of resistance.
THERABAND has long been a clinician favorite and these test results are another reason why.

What is THERABAND?
THERABAND is the originator and global leader of resistance products. The brand was created by two clinicians over 40 years ago and has been the top choice for clinicians ever since. THERABAND’s Trusted Progression System® is a precise color-coded system that indicates resistance levels between 2.4 and 14.2 pounds. The Trusted Progression System is pull-force tested and validated in THERABAND manufacturing facilities to ensure band integrity. Overall, THERABAND makes sure each and every band they create will hold up over time and will give clinicians and their patients consistent and reliable results.
The Results: What the Resistance Band Testing Revealed
THERABAND non-latex resistance bands were taken to a third-party international laboratory dedicated to the rubber and plastic industries to be tested against the non-latex bands of another leading rehabilitation resistance band. The bands were tested for both durability and consistent pull force.
In the durability test, both brands were stretched at 175% elongation, for multiple rounds, until they broke or completed the test. The results showed THERABAND non-latex bands lasted more than five times longer than the next leading competitor’s resistance band.
In pull force testing, THERABAND’s Trusted Progression System® was put to the test. If a band has consistent pull force, it means the band has a predictable level of resistance when stretched. Consistent pull force is important for ensuring clinicians can accurately gauge the progress of their patient's strength and recovery. The results of this test proved THERABAND’s Trusted Progression system to have consistent, reliable pull force at 100% elongation for each level of resistance.
Because these tests were conducted by a third party, the results are non-biased evidence of the quality of THERABAND non-latex bands. While THERABAND has long been a clinician favorite, there is now empirical evidence demonstrating the quality and reliability of the THERABAND non-latex bands.
These results mean you can have confidence in the safety and effectiveness of THERABAND non-latex resistance bands. They’re less likely to snap, they last longer, and they give you more control over the progression of patients’ exercises.
