A slant board is a flat surface set at an angle or slant. Such boards may be used for a variety of purposes.


Movie studios build them for actors to rest on between performances to avoid wrinkling costumes.[1]


There are two varieties for exercises:

  1. a long padded board which will accommodate the full length of the lying body
  2. a smaller wooden platform for standing upon.

The calf muscles or triceps surae may be stretched by a daily exercise of standing upon a slant board.[2]
