Validating Effectiveness

Because our product design and functionality is scientifically based, research plays an integral role in validating the effectiveness of NuStep® recumbent cross trainer use for a wide range of users.

This section provides a snapshot of medical, physiological, and other research that has tested the use and efficacy of NuStep® recumbent cross trainers for a variety of populations and conditions.

The Effects Of Cardiac Rehabilitation On A Patient Post-Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Using A Bioresorbable Vascular Sacffold

Journal of Neurologic Physical Therapy

Individuals in the subacute stage of stroke participated in an 8-week moderate- to high-intensity exercise training intervention, using a NuStep recumbent cross trainer. Improvements were found in both cardiovascular health and physcial performance.

This study supports the validity of an equation developed to estimate steady state oxygen uptake during submaximal NuStep exercise for older adult users.

Study with post-stroke people using a recumbent stepper finds exertion fatigue and chronic fatigue are two distinct fatigue constructs as identified with two different contributing factors.

Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise

Study using recumbent stepper finds that during a rhythmic locomotor-like task, upper and lower limb muscle activation is bidirectionally and ipsilaterally coupled.

Study to evaluate a modified exercise test using a total-body recumbent stepper concludes it may be a safe, feasible and valid exercise test to measure V02peak in post stroke individuals.

Journal of Strength Conditioning and Research

Preliminary data of this study suggest that the total body recumbent stepper (TBRS-XT) may be a valid test to predict VO2max when treadmill testing is not feasible.

Clinical Rehabilitation

Study tests bilateral reciprocal training on post stroke patients with leg weakness and finds that after NuStep participation, patients show impairment reductions and improved balance.

Physical Therapy Journal

Study finds MET values measured by NuStep machines to be accurate and useful for professionals using NuStep to monitor and prescribe exercise training to their patients.

Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and Prevention

A study to test the safety and efficacy of upper-extremity exercise in heart failure (HF) patients finds it is safe and well-tolerated by HF patients who cannot exercise lower extremities.
