The HeartFlex Adapted Physical Activity Product
Produces the Same Valuable Benefits of Swimming
"Without the Water"
| Swimming is the best complete body workout because it uses easy resistance in combination with multiple repetitions to improve strength, flexibility, and endurance.
HeartFlex adapted equipment combines easy resistance with multiple repetitions, just like swimming, to rapidly create strong muscles while improving flexibility and stamina.
The key to HeartFlex's effectiveness is its patented resistance assembly, composed of interlocking beads, which create easy resistance "across the complete range of motion performed" - just like swimming. This passive resistance assembly is so innovative that it is protected by three separate United States patents.
|The HeartFlex adapted therapy product:
Improves strength and flexibility
Boosts circulation of lymphatic fluid and blood flow
Burns lots of calories
Lowers blood sugar levels
Creates only passive resistance so it cannot snap back and injure - does not
intimidate the de-conditioned or patients with spasticity issues
|HeartFlex Adapted Physical Education Equipment Works For ALL Fitness Levels
| The "easy" resistance of HeartFlex, like the resistance encountered when swimming, is not adjustable. The intensity of a Heart Flex workout, like a swimming workout, is determined solely by varying the movement, rhythm, and quantity of repetitions performed.
The accumulation of repetitions, not strenuous resistance, is what builds strength and flexibility while concurrently delivering a great adapted physical activity workout.
|Wrist, Arm, Chest, Back, and Shoulder Tool
| The HeartFlex adapted therapy tool allows the selective targeting of wrists, arms, chest, back, and shoulders by simply performing different exercises. Building strength and flexibility in select functional muscles and joints facilitates assistance for daily living allowing a higher level of independence.
|HeartFlex Adapted Product Strengthens The Entire Muscle
| HeartFlex's resistance assembly builds muscle strength consistently over the complete range of motion that is performed. Other products, using springs and bands, create inconsistent resistance resulting in muscles that are not able to produce dependable power through their complete range of motion.
|HeartFlex Prevents Cold Muscle Injuries
| Muscles have been compared to taffy. If you stretch taffy when it is cold it breaks and tears, after being warmed up it will bend and stretch without structural damage. Using the HeartFlex adapted therapy aid before exertion stretches upper body muscles to their optimum length. Its simple and silent operation is ideal for pre-exertion warm ups and keeping muscles limber during activity pauses.
|HeartFlex Prevents Cramping and Stiff Muscle Pain
| HeartFlex adapted physical activity equipment performs cool downs after muscle use. It allows its user to slowly decrease activity and eliminate accumulated muscle toxins while incrementally re-establishing pre-exertion physiology.
|HeartFlex Adapted Products Relieve Tension and Stress
| Tension and stress effect patient morale, health, and productivity. Stress may cause depression, headaches, backaches, and lack of concentration. HeartFlexing provides a light exercise that boosts circulation helping to eliminate anxiety and nervous tension. It is another facet to harness when assisting patients when utilizing holistic adaptive strategies.
|Boosts Body's Natural Cleansing Functions
| The HeartFlex adapted physical education tool Improves circulation facilitating the body's natural removal of bodily toxins.
|HeartFlex Adapted Physical Activity Lowers Blood Sugar Levels
| Complications from Alzheimer's and related dementias may include a more sedentary lifestyle which may result in higher blood sugar levels.
"This device has been used in several classes at The Diabetes Center. It is easy to demonstrate, and patients find it simple to use. It is lightweight and easy to maneuver. It would also travel well. It may be used in a standing or sitting position and can be effective for patients at varying degrees of fitness. We have observed drops in blood sugar from 10 to 60 points after only 5 minutes of activity."
