A vast majority of the home fitness equipment currently on the market is designed for use by able-bodied individuals who have excellent balance and enjoy full range of motion in all joints and limbs. It’s rare to find an affordable product targeted to home users that are injured, elderly, or disabled. While this might make good business sense for manufacturers, it does leave a sizable segment of potential customers out in the cold.
That’s where NuStep comes in. NuStep produces a line of recumbent cross trainers, including the popular T4r model available at Push Pedal Pull, that are tailored to people that may need special accommodation when exercising.
How NuStep is different
Unlike traditional exercise equipment that requires users to possess strength, balance, and a reasonable fitness base to get started, NuStep can be used by virtually anyone. The T4r recumbent cross trainer in particular features a 360º swivel seat (conveniently located at wheelchair height) with adjustable armrests that make it easy to mount and dismount from the machine. In addition, the moving handlebars, adjustable resistance settings, and oversized foot pedals with heel cups help ensure a vigorous full body workout with minimal joint impact or strain.
Who can benefit from NuStep
NuStep recumbent cross trainers can be used by anyone to build confidence along with strength and fitness. However, they are especially beneficial for certain populations, including individuals that are:
- Recovering from cardiac surgery
- Recovering from accident or injury
- Going through physical rehabilitation
- Unsteady on their feet
- Limited as to range of motion
In addition, NuStep fitness machines are ideal for assisted living facilities, VA hospitals, physical therapy clinics, and other institutions with special needs clientele.
