Metabolic disorders

Metabolic pathologies

Metabolic pathologies include diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome. Physical activity and exercise can help reduce the symptoms and problems linked to these diseases.

Our recommended solutions

Diabetes and obesity can also be addressed by activating the metabolism, which is done through burning calories. 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.

Equipment for simple cardio training

For simple cardio training, we recommend Jog Now MD with its reduced start speed (0.4 km/h instead of 0.8 km/h); this treadmill also helps first-timers approach physical exercise. Recline MD InclusiveTop MD Inclusive and Vario MD are three machines that allow for metabolic activation without overloading the lower limbs –suitable for people suffering from diabetes complications and obesity.

Circuit training equipment

Nine machines comprise an easy and complete circuit for cardio training and muscle strength enhancement. According to a study by the Medical-Scientific Department on a sample of sedentary women, performing the Easy Line circuit for 30 minutes at low intensity burns around 190 calories.

Easily monitor patients’ progress

Thanks to mywellness® cloud and mywellness® key, you can monitor the patient’s progress and physical exercise. These two applications generate detailed reports on the patient’s health and the results following treatment. The mywellness cloud programme library includes some specific training protocols for persons suffering from diabetes.
