The APT combines both PASSIVE and ACTIVE exercise by using physical effort in conjunction with the electrical operation of the motor. Offering a wide range of advanced features, the trainer helps passive users recovering from injury, suffering from muscle atrophy or confined to a wheelchair maintain muscle tone and improves blood circulation and stamina. The Trainer also challenges active users and is extremely helpful for movement rehabilitation, improving strength, stamina and fitness.
Active Passive Trainer APT is highly portable weighing only 10 kg/22 lb. The APT can be positioned anywhere. Place it on the floor for lower body exercises, on a table for upper body for total workout. Other features include easily changeable accessories that enable complete utilization of the APT by users with different and varied physical difficulties.
Increases range of motion
The APT trainer allows the performance of repetitive movements of the upper and lower extremities. Using the Passive and Passive Assist modes allows to moderately increase the passive range of motion of the major joints. Once obtained, a novel range of motion should be followed by Active Mode training for muscle conditioning.
The APT trainer Passive and Passive Assist modes facilitate slow and controlled rhythmic movements of the extremities. Users with increased muscle tone due to neurological conditions may benefit from using these modes. If needed, accessories providing additional support for the limbs may be added. Furthermore, increased muscle tone during movement may be a result of weakness, therefore training with the Passive Assist and Active mode may increase muscle strength and reduce the demanded effort performing movements.
Improves walking capabilities
Training with the APT helps to improve walking distance and speed. This improvement is achieved mainly by improving the aerobic capacity of the circulatory and respiratory systems, along with increasing the major muscles’ resistance to fatigue.
Increases muscle strength
The APT trainer enables muscle strength training by concentrically flexing and extending the main joints of the extremities, using five distinct levels of resistance. Additionally, trunk muscle strength and postural control can improve while sitting unsupported.
