Physical Therapy Exercise Equipment Rehabilitation Exercise Equipment
Medical professionals in the know have for many years chosen fluid resistance as the preferred modality for the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal and cardiovascular conditions. Unfortunately, fluid resistance is a secret that many physical therapists and medical professionals are aware of. Our goal is to change this, because the Fit Express Hydraulic Exercise Equipment is perfect for Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation for many reasons.
1: Preferred modality for the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal/cardiovascular conditions
2: Extremely Safe
3: Reduced Injuries and Liabilities
Easiest form of exercise on the JointsNo eccentric load nearly eliminating DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness)Dual-concentric resistance helps to reduce and prevent muscle imbalances Unique motion that is Less like traditional exercise equipment—actually more like swimming, but with better joint stability/strength benefitsA PERFECT Rehabilition Modality Addition to Physical Therapy.
Exercise is crucially important during rehabilitation
Resistance training is optimal to increase strength, but traditional strength exercise can be tough on joints (even with light weights) especially for those experiencing arthritis or have other movement-restricting conditions. There is also the risk of injury with any system using an eccentric phase to the movement, common with conventional free weight and strength exercise machines.
The dual-concentric motion of our hydraulic fitness equipment helps to take a person through an individuals natural range of motion so it can greatly help increase the strength of prime movers while also stabilizing the joint in a fixed position.
This would be a great add-on to your current multi-planar exercise programs that your clients can even do under minimal or no supervision. Soreness is also an initial side effect of using conventional exercise equipment which can slow down the progress of rehabilitation.
The absence of an eccentric load practically eliminates delayed onset muscle soreness while still providing your client with prime mover strength.

“I’m 81 years of age and during the last five years I’ve been exercising with the fluid machines and I find them to help me tremendously. I have been detected as having Parkinson’s Disease and I have indicated to the doctors and others that have an early-formed disease that the exercises that I am attending to three times a week cause me to have greater balance, cause me to have greater strength. At one time I was considered to be one of the great fallers in our community because I would fall so often. Today, with my continuing attendance I find that all of that has been relieved and I attribute to the machines and the exercise that I’m involved in every week. Thank you.”
