Inclusive Exercise Equipment for Older Adults
It’s not news that exercise is essential to healthy aging. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regular exercise is one of the most important things older adults can do for their overall health. Despite this, many older adults are reluctant to exercise. For some, the fear of falling, experiencing pain or worsening a chronic condition, presents a barrier to exercise.
The challenge for health and wellness professionals working in senior community and senior center settings is to remove these perceived barriers to exercise.
That’s why NuStep cross trainers are a top choice among professionals in these settings. Designed for accessibility and ease of use, our cross trainers make low-impact, total-body exercise possible for older adults of virtually all fitness levels and functional abilities.
Our recumbent cross trainers feature:
- Low step-through design
- Locking feature to make getting on and off easier
- Wheelchair-height seat that swivels 360 degrees and a grab ring for extra support
- Smooth-stepping motion with user-controlled stride length
- Low-inertia start-up and multiple resistance levels
