We currently have one like-new open box VitaGlide Exercise Machine in stock! Using the VitaGlide is a great way for you to regain strength in your upper body, build lean muscle, and helps you feel better all around!
VitaGlide is designed for the optimal exercise position for the upper torso allowing the creation of a natural, fluid motion with no unwarranted stress on the shoulders. In addition, VitaGlide now offers you two upper-body exercise motions similar to rowing or cross-country skiing. Both motions strengthen the musculature of the upper body, shoulder orbit, and core. Exercise routines can now go well beyond the singular action of the original motion and VitaGlide users can select independent resistance for each arm depending upon their own goals.
VitaGlide also involves more muscle groups, resulting in a more effective and efficient workout than traditional seated exercise therapy or workout programs. Increased core strength, improved cardio workout, and greater range of motion are all potential outcomes for the VitaGlide user.
Who should use VitaGlide?
Upper Body Physical Therapy Patients
VitaGlide is an effective rehabilitation treatment for those with shoulder impingements from repetitive motion or decreased upper body strength due to disease or disability:
- Individuals in wheelchairs
- Stroke victims
- Athletes, including pitchers, tennis, racquetball, and basketball players, swimmers, golfers, weightlifters
- Geriatric patients who have lost upper body strength
Those Seeking A Powerful Upper Body Workout
No exercise regimen is complete without an upper-body workout and VitaGlide is the perfect workout machine to help you meet your goals.
How is VitaGlide different from other exercise machines for wheelchair workouts?
The VitaGlide focuses on total upper body development – both the anterior and posterior muscles. Most other upper body machines work your anterior large group muscles only and do not address shoulder impingement issues in the most effective way. Minor, yet essential muscle groupings are also targeted and important strength gains are achieved in difficult to engage muscle structures. Through the new push together-pull together movement, you can address the pectoral muscles. And with the traditional push-then-pull movement, you can work on your obliques and core muscles. The value inherent in this approach to upper body development is exclusive to VitaGlide.
