Muscle Hydration® System

Muscle Recovery Made Simple

Introducing Wave5 by IQBody

WAVE5 targets pain by guiding you through an interactive journey around your body using our mobile app’s instructional videos and innovative multi-tool.

Joint & Muscle Recovery Made Simple with WAVE5 Muscle Hydration®

Target Deep Tissue Pain and Find Quick Relief

WAVE5 is comprised of 5 distinct tools:




Our mobility ball enables you to quickly access multiple layers of thick, dense tissue. 




Inside the mobility ball is our large roller that can also be used as a muscle stick (insert a towel/dowel through the hollow center). Its size and shape make it one of the most versatile rollers on the market. Stream is the height of a lacrosse ball with the stability of a roller.

Open the mobility ball and you have two stability domes, which allow you to target muscles on both sides of the body at the same time. They can sit flat against the floor for greatest user confidence; and you can stand on them.






Our small roller, found inside of Stream, is the perfect combination of a firm, yet delicate touch for your feet and other flat tissue. It’s the height of a golf ball.

Why Wave5?

We created WAVE5 to free you from pain, balance your muscles, and recover quickly. Discover the value of muscle hydration® for yourself.

WAVE5 uses a medley of techniques. Pulsing is our first featured technique.

A pulse is a tempo-guided wave of pressure that travels from one point on a muscle to another. Unlike rolling techniques, the pulse uses varied levels of pressure instead of uniform force. This gives the muscle an opportunity to adapt to the pressure.

The pulse introduces gradual pressure and individualized attention to each part of the tissue. Pulsing uses your “feel good” intensity which is a pressure level that falls somewhere between “that feels really good” and “ouch that hurts.”

This avoids: triggering tension in the area you’re targeting, applying too much pressure, feeling unwanted next-day soreness.

Not Your Average Foam Roller

WAVE5 reaches places foam rollers can’t. Why?  Because of the size of our tools and the treads on each tool.

Variable intensities: Each tool has its own baseline intensity, the user decides what tool, and then their own baseline for that tool.

WAVE5 offers precision and simultaneously offers options for dense tissue and large surface areas.

WAVE5 is the height of a foam roller when assembled, but a fraction of the width. 

WAVE5 doesn’t lose shape like a foam roller. 

WAVE5 is robust whereas high density foam rollers fall apart.


WAVE5 teaches you to pulse, which is a more effective form of muscle therapy whereas foam rolling employs ineffective rolling techniques.

WAVE5 fits in the palm of your hand and is easy to carry; foam rollers are hard to transport. 

WAVE5 is a system meaning tool PLUS app.

We offer extensive video instruction in an organized video library whereas foam rollers come with limited paper instruction and maybe some web portal content.

You can easily clean WAVE5 whereas foam rollers are tough to clean because they are porous. 


  • Highly recommend!

    The WAVE5 has been a game changing tool with my soft tissue release and mobility work. After just a few weeks of use I noticed a significant difference in my hip and low back mobility and pain. I’ve been in the fitness industry for 6 years now and have recommended countless tools to my clients. Yet nothing has provided the same results as the WAVE5. With the guided videos and a proven system it’s guaranteed to be effective. Whether your goals are to improve mobility, relieve pain, or maximize strength gains, the WAVE5 is a system that will help get you there. Highly recommend!

  • Everything I hoped for and more

    I couldn’t wait to get my hands in my WAVE5, and it’s everything I was hoping for and more. It’s so versatile and easy to take anywhere I go. I use it at the gym and home and find it’s the best tool I’ve used so far to get deep into my aches and pains. I even take it with me to Spartan Races. I’ve used other tools in the past and the foam was not nearly as firm and the core of those products doesn’t compare to the stability you get from the WAVE5. I also love the videos. I never wonder if I’m doing the movements correctly between the audio and visual instruction. That’s also confirmed by all the relief I feel after using the tool. I am so happy I have this muscle hydrating and pain reducing assistant. I would recommend it to anyone young or old, active or wanting to be more active.

  • It really is all the tools in one

    I am a physical therapist and  have been using the WAVE5 ball for about a month now.  What I like most about it is its versatility. It really is all the tools in one.  I’ve been using it mostly on my plantar fascia, by breaking it in half, and standing on it.  This allows me to treat both sides.  The ridges allow for a lot of shear to be placed on the fascia which breaks up the adhesions and restore normal motion to the tissue.

    The WAVE5 allows you to get deeper into the tissue and make real change that can verified through test and retest. I would highly recommend it to anyone serious about their performance, or anyone that is interested in self care to improve their overall function.

  • The tools are one of a kind

    I love the WAVE5 program. First of all the tools are one of a kind. The various options give me greater control over my recovery technique for higher effectiveness. The phone application is easy to navigate making it simple to find the videos that are relevant to me. The videos are an ease to follow along with giving great visual and verbal direction to the recovery techniques.

    The very FIRST time I hopped on I was easily able to follow along with the videos, the verbal direction, and the timing pulse for a great recovery in my lower back and shoulders. I love that there are options present to fit my schedule whether I am restricted to just a few minutes or have a lot of time to invest. I would highly recommend WAVE5. Recovery is just as important as exercise itself and if you’re going to do it it should be done right, with focus and intention. WAVE5 will provide that for you!

Muscle Hydration® and the Value of Pressure

Muscle hydration is a series of techniques based on the principles of myofascial release.

We help you fix the root of your muscle discomfort

WAVE5 restores water and nutrients to your muscles reducing joint and bone stress and allows for greater pliability and movement. This influx of fluids (1) relieves the tension causing your pain, (2) returns function to the tissue, and (3) revives circulation to tissue so that it can recover efficiently and effectively. Muscle Hydration increases the percentage of muscle available for greater flexibility, endurance, and strength. It also enhances joint mobility and gives you greater range of motion (ROM).

Muscle Hydration is the long-term solution to getting the most out of your body

You control the intensity.

Your pressure doesn’t have to hurt to work.

The more relaxed your muscle, the more effective your pressure.
