The biomechanical design of fitness equipment for wounded warriors is critical to
enable physiologically exact performance and to avoid the exacerbation of chronic
injury. Cybex is unique in that every piece of Cybex gear is studied by the experts
at The Cybex Research Institute. Our goal is to ensure that all users
optimize their training experience, limit exposure to injury, and have the variety
and adjustability that enables them to "train around" chronic problems.
The Cybex Arc Trainer
for instance, enables incredible strength and cardio workouts for everyone from
the most extreme athlete (up to 900 watts) to the Wounded Warrior who is experiencing
his first post-op PT session (down to 50 watts). Both users will engage the large
muscles of the glutes, hamstrings and quads without putting undue stress on the
joints of the knees and hips.
Cybex equipment helps the weak to get strong, the strong to stay strong – and the
injured to recover strong!
