From Rehab to Home

NuStep cross trainers – the same machines favored by physical therapists around the globe – can be purchased for your personal use right in your home. Our recumbent cross trainers are suitable for virtually any user recovering from an injury, joint replacement, cardiac surgery or stroke. Exercising on our cross trainer helps maintain the fitness gains achieved in rehab, build strength, increase mobility, improve overall health and contribute to a greater quality of life.

NuStep cross trainers were designed to simulate the movement of walking and allow users to increase resistance as they gain strength. The risk of dangerous falls is reduced because users exercise on our machine while in a safe, seated, recumbent position.

Cardiac Rehabilitation and Heart Health

The standard-bearer in cardiac rehabilitation around the world, NuStep recumbent cross trainers have helped countless people living with heart disease or recovering from a cardiac event regain their strength and improve their health.

Our cross trainers are also used by thousands seeking to improve their heart health and prevent cardiovascular disease.

Invaluable for Recovery and Beyond

All the features that make the NuStep cross trainer an invaluable tool during each phase of cardiac rehab, are equally valuable in a long-term maintenance program you can do at home.

The ergonomic design and features like a 360° swivel seat, sturdy grab bar and StrideLock®,  make getting on and off the NuStep easy. The low inertia startup, user controlled step length and multiple resistance levels, allow users to achieve a full-body cardio and strength training workout that is easy on the joints.

Continuing Physical Therapy at Home

Physical therapists around the globe use our cross trainers in their patient rehabilitation programs because they help their clients achieve optimal results. Thousands of these clients have purchased our cross trainer for their home so they can continue their progress.

orthopedic injuries and surgery

Users recovering from orthopedic injuries or surgery need a smooth, low-impact exercise option. The simulated walking motion and low-inertia start-up of our cross trainers allow for a fluid, natural movement. The 360-degree seat swivels to allow access from various angles – ideal for users with limited mobility. The user-controlled stride length and multiple resistance levels allows users to adjust their workout as they progress.

Spinal Cord Injuries

For those living with paralysis due to spinal cord injuries, lack of access to exercise is a barrier difficult to overcome. NuStep recumbent cross trainers help remove those barriers and provide access to exercise that can help users:

  • Gain strength and independence
  • Get valuable cardiovascular exercise
  • Maintain and lose weight
  • Manage chronic pain

The accessible design of the NuStep cross trainer make total-body strength and cardio workouts possible for virtually any user.

    I used a NuStep in my in-patient rehab stay following my stroke in 2005. I really miss it’s extremely safe process for me to get some real exercise, without the fall risk of walking on a treadmill with my weak leg’s spasming ankle, and even more I miss the good stretch that it gave my contracting left arm. I am finally able to afford to get my own and will be ordering one for my home. I am very excited and can hardly wait, just have to wait until a room is prepared for it here, where my brother will also relocate my treadmill into, so that we will have a home fitness room for everyone in the house to utilize.

    Hi My NuStep Family and Friends.
    I would like to give an update on my recovery from my hip and joint replacement.
    Well it has been three weeks since I have been out of the hospital and the recovery is going well.
    The only problem I’m having with recovery is mentally I’m trying to rush. LOL
    But the doctors have forewarned me that this is not something I can rush or it could be worse. Like if I dislocate my hip at this point, I would have to have the surgery all over again and the recovery time is twice as long. So needless to say they didn’t have to tell me that twice. I still can’t drive for another couple of weeks, I can’t bend my knee or my right side more than 90° getting up or down for a couple more weeks, I can’t cross my legs and a few other things. The muscles has to get stronger and bond with new hip and joint.
    I’ll be back on my NuStep in a week. (Which is going to be the only equipment that I’ll be using for my rehab) Which makes total sense seeing that’s all I need. LOL
    Can’t Wait because to me that’s when my recovery starts. ��
    Thanks Everyone for the support I have been receiving. It means a lot. ��

    The T4r is the only machine at the physiotherapy clinic that does not cause my ankle pain. Really enjoying getting active again for the first time in months, since my ankle injury. Great piece of equipment!!!

    I have used these in rehab for several years. Only machine I ever enjoyed. Wasted a lot on a cheaper one that I hated. I got my excise down pat and .now I will not drive 30 minutes to excise. Got a tablet and can get internet so hope I am set.

    I first used the NuStep T4r in cardiac rehab after having my aortic valve replaced. After completing rehab, I missed using it so much I purchased one for my home. My sons are 12 & 9 - they also use the NuStep

    We were introduced to the T4r while at our local YMCA. My husband is having a hard time with balance and walking safely. He has found that the NuStep trainer gives him the workout he likes without the worry of taking a fall (as has happened on the walking track). We will drive the distance several times a week just to make sure he can get the workout. Thanks NuStep!

    I love our T4r. Ended up in ICU because most of my hormones had been depleted. Definitely was not fun! Ended up in Rehab where I basically had to learn to walk again. It was there I discovered NuStep. Using it I was walking within that same week. Now having one at home I use it several times a day. To me it is well worth the cost! Thank you for such a terrific unit that's easy on my knees!

    NuStep got me on my feet again after 4 spinal surgeries and a stroke. I do not think I would be walking today without the help...and now I will have one in my home to keep me going all year round!

    I have had MS for about 20 years now, diagnosed first with RRMS and have progressed to the stage of SPMS. Physical therapy has always been a challenge for me, not so much in doing the therapy, but getting to the facility. Just getting to the PT facility was the PT itself. Also, as anyone with MS knows, one typically has a time during each day when your symptoms seem to be more manageable. For me that is the early evening. After years of struggling and ultimately giving up on getting to the facility (FT day job + family responsibilities), I decided to purchase the T5XR for in-home use. I love it. I can now do my exercise at a time that works for me (early evening). I have a long way to go, but I am up to 45 minutes at Level 4, about 2.25-2.50 miles. What a difference this machine has made in my life. Thank you so much.

    This NuStep recumbent cross trainer made a huge difference for me while I was in a high quality, skilled nursing rehab facility, which I needed as part of my recovery following a serious accident, from being hit by a car turning the corner that threw me off my path while attempts to get across the crosswalk. The accident resulted in my having multiple fractures in my leg, pelvis, and ribs. After a week of starting intensive physical therapy, I was introduced to the NuStep, used it diligently practically every day from then on, even while I was in a brace and not ready to put weight on my leg & knee, which went for the ride, but still this enabled me to get healing from the motion, after nearly two months of use, on top of all the therapeutic efforts, I was walking again. I've left the facility and now looking for a fitness place in my area that has the NuStp. It was a life-savor for me, and miss it already.

    I have primary progressive multiple sclerosis and right arm and leg are very weak. Before being introduced to the NuStep at a rehab center, no other exercise equipment had worked for me. With the leg brace and the hand grip assist I was able to for the first time in years. I'm up to 60 minutes and 4700 steps on level 5.

    First used this after my knee replacement therapy. Decided some time later that I needed to exercise at home so I picked a Nu Step T5XR. It sits by the TV which helps me going. Just finished my first mile in one sitting! Well worth the money!
