What is cork?
Cork is a 100% natural plant tissue from the bark of the cork oak. It consists of a hive of microscopic cells containing a gas identical to air. It has a range of uses associated with its attributes that no technology has yet managed to replicate or exceed.
Is it natural?
Yes! Cork is a 100% natural raw material, 100% renewable, 100% reusable and 100% recyclable.
How long will it last?
Cork is totally impermeable to liquids and practically impermeable to gases. Its resistance to moisture allows it to grow old without deteriorating.That means when you sweat on this product it does not seep into the materials like foam alternatives.
Why should I buy MOBECO?
Cork is a naturally durable and long lasting product. It's non porous so it will NOT absorb sweat and bacteria like foam products. Cork is 100% natural and does not harm the cork oak tree in the harvest process. The cork is taken from the bark and allows the tree to continue growing.

Is this good for pain?
Yes. These tools are perfect for typical pain spots like your lower back, knees, shoulders, neck and everything in between.
Is this good for recovery?
Yes. Gentle massage can increase blood flow and circulation helping you to get water, nutrients and fresh blood cells to damaged areas so you can recover faster, relax and sleep like a baby!
Can I use this if I have an injury?
Short answer, yes. Acute or recent injuries should be rested initially however mobilising the muscles around the injury (but not on it) can aid in faster recovery. Best to seek advice from your physio, osteo or therapist before using the tools to treat the injury itself.
