The IdealStretch is the safest and most effective hamstring, calf, knee and lower back stretching aid. Mechanically correct and pressure free stretching of all muscles, ligaments and tendons running from the lower back all the way down to the plantar fascia.


Most effective hamstring stretching device, stretching the hamstring and calf at the same time.


IdealStretch also relieves tight and short Illio-Tibial (IT) band tissues, reducing lower back, knee, and lateral knee pain. Stretching the hamstrings relieves back pressure and pain.


Bending over is a horrible way to stretch. IdealStretch uses the safest way, which is lying on your back with your knee straight, eliminating the pressure off of your spine and maintaining proper hip orientation.


Hamstring, Hip, IT Band, and Groin stretches can all be performed using this single device. Highly effective for warmup, exercise, post-exercise, physical therapy and rehabilitation.


The light steel frame is made of the highest quality using heavy-duty construction.

  • The IdealStretch was a custom made stretching device to help with leg stretches. Stretching, or lack of, is the reason behind injuries and strains each and every day. Using a leg stretcher for flexibility helps improve mobility and prevent injury.
  • The IdealStretch is a simple and effective way to stabilize your leg, helping to maintain proper hip alignment when doing hamstring stretches for flexibility. Alleviating tight hamstrings and calves can relieve lower back pain and can also help alleviate pain associated with plantar fasciitis.
  • Made from high quality materials and recommended by physical therapists, this leg flexibility device is great for before and after exercise, as well as for use in physical therapy and rehabilitation. Created in two pieces with convenience in mind, each leg stretching device collapses quickly and easily for transport or storage.
  • When it comes to leg and knee stretching equipment, do yourself a favor and get an IdealStretch.

    Excellent item

  31. Eric (verified owner)

    I wasn’t sure about this as I thought my strap was fine. But now that I have this I’m really happy with it and will have it for a life time. I rarely write reviews. I think the money is worth it. It feels like I’m getting a safer stretch and my knee is going back to a straighter leg more with support.

    Worth the price.

  40. Bre

    This is a great way to stretch! Sometimes when my muscles are tight or I have muscle cramps, I can’t comfortably reach my toes to get a good stretch. This device makes it much easier to get a good stretch to loosen things up when they’re tight, and is also awesome for more unique stretches from side to side that help loosen up the hips and back for me. Super useful to have around!

    This device was extremely helpful in helping me regain complete flexibility after my total knee replacement surgery. My physical therapist got me started with the Ideal Stretch, and I use it daily to maintain my knee strength. Get it, you’ll be grateful you did.

    Used to use a strap to stretch, but this device keeps my knees from flexing so it is much better. Works so much more efficiently in getting a deep stretch.

    Good product, but didn’t really work for me. I need to go to therapy otherwise I won’t use the item. Easy refund with customer service.

  67. Tracy C. (verified owner)

    Love it

  68. Ana (verified owner)

    I loved it! It’s a great tool for tight hamstring.

  69. Linda Vickery (verified owner)

    I was shown the ideal stretch at a physical therapy session. I was shown how to use it instead of strap wrapped around shoe and pull on strap and push down just above knee with other hand. This just place foot inside and you have a nice handle to hold onto and push down at same time. Provides exactly what you need on a much easier and more pleasant way. If you have arthritis in hands, it’s hard to pull on those straps.
