This entry was posted on October 7, 2014.
Fitness Expo – located in the Southern US states of Mississippi and Louisiana, considered to be part of the “diabetes belt” – takes on the responsibility of marketing to the mobility challenged and individuals with serious health problems that can be alleviated with physicality. Many people are mobility impaired, ranging from upper-, lower-, and total-body impairment. As we age, mobility becomes more important for overall health and longevity. Fitness Expo’s sales staff connects and networks within the local community, as well as colleges and universities, to develop their marketing expertise in adaptive fitness equipment for the mobility impaired of all age groups. The sales staff has extensive knowledge of the assistive technology incorporated into their adaptive equipment. Fitness Expo offers three models of adaptive mobility trainers – all from the award-winning Precor home gym and workout equipment line.
Precor AMT 835 with OpenStride
With mid-air motion that rivals running and 20 resistance levels, a unique feature of the AMT 835 is it allows spontaneous user adjustment from short to long strides and OpenStride Technology introduces horizontal and vertical stride paths. The AMT 835 provides a supreme, dual action, upper and lower body workout; all limbs of the user are simultaneously engaged. It is the best adaptive mobility trainer for people in their 80’s and up. With a 20-level resistance range, these users can easily target their optimum level and toggle between fitness levels when needed. The AMT 835 is a larger machine storage-wise; intuitively speaking, this piece of equipment needs to remain free and clear to be readily used.
What Equipment Can Paraplegics Use to Gain More Mobility?
It is known that people suffering spinal injuries leading to paraplegia must regularly exercise to stave off eminent health problems resulting from being sedentary, or always being in a seated position. Obesity, digestive complications, and poor circulation can be improved or prevented with the incorporation of an exercise routine. Fitness Expo also has a variety of accessories, such as three stages of the PowerBlock Sport 9.0 dumbbells and the cost effective PowerBlock Kettleblock 20 Kettlebells. They take up 1/5th of the space and have a weight range of 5, 8, 12, 16, and 20 lbs. For someone with upper body strength, the Precor AMT 835 can also help attain a total body workout as all limbs of the user are fully engaged; operating the arms of the trainer also draws the legs into motion.
