What is the Eccentron™?
The Eccentron™ is a special eccentric training system. It is not to be confused for an elliptical, stepper, or bike, and is different from any therapy or athletic training device that has been seen or used before. The Eccentron™ uses eccentric exercises that allow strength training without over-exerting oneself or getting out of breath.
What is Eccentric Exercise?
Eccentric exercise is the act of muscles lengthening under force (eccentric contraction), such as when you’re lowering a weight, sitting down in a chair, going down a flight of stairs, or walking downhill. Eccentric muscle work occurs every day.
How do you use the Eccentron™?
Using the Eccentron™ is quite easy and fun to use! You resist the moving pedals at your own strength ability (the system pushes while you resist). The Eccentron™ is targeted towards your individual needs and allows you to work at your own optimum level.
The Eccentron™ visually shows each session’s performance and illustrates your continuing advancement over the full course of treatment. Treatment and performance results varies by patient.
The Eccentron™ has played a major role in Active Health's rehabilitation and physical therapy programs in the Palm Beach County area. Please contact us today at 561-842-2273 to see if the Eccentron™ will work for you!
