Solutions for metabolic pathologies
Physical exercise may have beneficial effects in curing diabetes, obesity and other metabolic pathologies. Here are our solutions for supporting you in your efforts to prevent and cure these diseases.
Metabolic pathologies include diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome and all those diseases linked to the absence or deficiency of enzymes that transform the protein, fat and sugar content present in food into energy. If you are an endocrinologist or diabetologist, physical exercise can help you reduce the symptoms and problems linked to these diseases, and effectively tackle problems such as obesity.
Our recommended solutions
Diabetes and obesity can also be tackled by activating the metabolism, which – in turn – is activated through the calorie burning process. For this reason, the first physical therapy we recommend is an exercise comprising cardiovascular activities and strength training. For example, walking coupled with certain strength exercises can help people suffering from diabetes to better absorb insulin and reduce HbA1c. The following are among our solutions for treating these symptomatologies:
Cardiovascular training: Jog Now, Vario, Recline and Top
To engage the patient in simple cardio training, we recommend Jog Now MD. Thanks to the modified start speed (0.4 km/h instead of 0.8 km/h), this tread mill also helps first-timers to approach physical exercise.
Instead Recline MD Inclusive, Top MD Inclusive and Vario MD are three machines that allow for burning plenty calories without overloading the lower limbs, and is thus suitable for people suffering from foot ulcers (a consequence of diabetes) and obesity.
The Easy Line circuit
Nine machines comprising an easy and complete circuit for cardio training and enhancing muscle strength. According to a study effected by the Medical-Scientific Department on a sample of sedentary women, performing the Easy Line circuit for 30’ at low intensity allows for burning around 190 calories.
Through systems such as Wellness System and mywellnesskey, you may monitor the patient’s progress and physical exercise. These two software applications allow for generating detailed reports on the patient’s health condition and the results obtained with the treatment. Moreover, Wellness System includes some specific training protocols for persons suffering from diabetes.
