ICAROS Pro is a virtual reality muscle control and balance training system designed to help athletes become intimately in control with each of their muscle groups. Developed in Germany, the ICAROS was engineered to magnify weaknesses in muscle control loses, giving the athlete a feeling of balancing on a single point. Any movement made while training on the ICAROS has to be done with extreme precision and control.
