INCLUSIVE EXERCISE EQUIPMENT FOR SENIOR Living

It’s not news that regular exercise plays a key role in healthy aging. Study after study demonstrates that older adults – from the fit to the frail – can experience a wide range of health and mental benefits from regular exercise. Despite this overwhelming evidence, a significant number of older adults are sedentary. Many are reluctant to exercise because of fears they will fall, experience pain or worsen an existing health condition.

The challenge for health and wellness professionals who work with older adults is to minimize these perceived barriers to exercise.

NuStep recumbent cross trainers can enhance your older adult fitness and wellness program by providing a safe and effective cardiovascular and strength workout for users of virtually all ages, fitness levels and functional abilities. Our machine’s low impact design and full-body workout helps older adults with weight loss, orthopedic issues, arthritis and more. We designed our cross trainers to be inclusive and our optional adaptive equipment makes it possible for people with limited mobility, balance issues or cognitive decline to get the aerobic exercise they need.

Our recumbent cross trainers feature:

  • Low step-through design (on the T5, T5XR and T5XRW)
  • StrideLock feature to make getting on and off easier
  • Wheelchair-height seat that swivels 360 degrees and a grab ring for extra support
  • Low impact stepping motion with user-controlled stride length
  • Low-inertia start-up and multiple resistance levels

IT’S A HEALTH INVESTMENT THAT MEANS BUSINESS

Aerobic exercise, like the kind users get while exercising on a NuStep recumbent cross trainer, helps optimize older adults’ health, independence and quality of life. For those 65+, the CDC recommends 150 minutes of aerobic exercise per week to help manage heart disease, improve brain function and promote functional independence. Aerobic training can help increase physical capacity, delay age-related declines, prevent acute cardiac events and improve recovery after a health event.

NuStep recumbent cross trainers can help you increase occupancy, generate positive functional outcomes, reduce avoidable hospital readmissions and create resident and staff engagement.

ENGAGING RESIDENTS

We frequently hear from senior communities and senior centers that they’ve had to set time limits on their NuStep cross trainers because they’re in such high demand. We also hear that locations with multiple NuStep cross trainers hold group NuStepping classes to drive engagement, increase participation and motivate more users to stay physically active.
