Aging

Solutions for active aging

Physical exercise during older age strengthens the muscles, facilitates mobility and can help prevent injuries and falls. Our solutions are designed to provide effective therapy for improving the quality of life of active aging.

Solutions for aging

Scientific studies have shown that physical exercise among the elderly improves heart function and reinforces muscles and joints, helping to prevent falls and fractures. Physical exercise generally improves mood, reduces anxiety and depression, and even helps to protect against certain forms of cognitive impairment.

Our recommended solutions

Our solution is based on the physical and social dimension of Wellness. It's designed to improve cardiovascular efficiency, muscle strength and flexibility, as well as cognitive function and social interaction.

The importance of cardiovascular efficiency

The pieces of equipment that are capable of guaranteeing effective cardio training and safe exercise for your patients include the Recline MD Inclusive, a comfortable bike with an easily adjustable backrest, the highly accessible Jog Now MD treadmill and the Crossover MD crosstrainer, which stimulates balance and proprioception.

 

Muscle strength & bone density

Strength training is another important element for guaranteeing healthy joints and muscles. The Leg Press Inclusive improves leg strength, increases bone density, and helps to prevent future falls and fractures.

 

Mobility, flexibility & balance

During older age, it’s important to perform activities that develop flexibility and maintain the range of movement required for daily activities. With the FLEXability collection, the patient is able to correctly stretch the muscle chains by performing movements designed to improve mobility. The Kinesis® One even includes a specific program designed to prevent injuries caused by falls by increasing muscle mass and bone density.

Interaction with others

Elderly individuals can also benefit from cognitive activities and socialization. Our interactive UNITY™ display on the main cardio machines includes gaming options designed to help prevent cognitive impairment. In addition, the Easy Line is ideal for elderly individuals who want to participate in group training and socialize more.
