Lotus and Coast—what sets them apart?

Overall, Lotus and Coast are closely related. They are each made up of a pair of magnetic Nesting Dome sets (large, medium, and small domes) on Timber Bases.

‘Inspired by Nature’, Lotus draws from the elegance of the blossoming lotus flower, while Coast channels the natural beauty of where land and ocean come together.

There are a few key design features which set Lotus and Coast apart, providing subtly different sensory input, fascial grip, and treatment focus to the skin, fascia, and muscles.

The Headlines

Lotus is slightly harder than Coast

While both Coast and Lotus allow you to vary the firmness by adding or removing inner domes, we chose to make Coast domes with a slightly softer material grade than Lotus domes, known as the ‘Shore hardness’.

Distinctive nodules

The large Lotus domes have angular nodules, while the large Coast domes have rounded nodules.

Nature-inspired colourways

Lotus and Coast each offer their own unique feel and aesthetic, thanks to the distinctive nature-inspired nodules, surface profiles, and colourways.
