Inclusive NuStep Exercise Equipment for Our Residents
At the Elms Retirement Residence, we are strong believers that regular physical activity is essential to healthy aging.
According to the Centers for Disease Control regular exercise is one of the most important things older adults can do for their overall mental and physical well being.
Many older adults are reluctant to exercise. For some, the fear of falling, experiencing pain or worsening a chronic condition, presents a real barrier to exercise.
The challenge for health and wellness professionals working in senior community and senior center settings is to remove these perceived barriers to exercise.
That’s why NuStep cross trainers are a top choice among health professionals. Designed for accessibility and ease of use, NuStep cross trainers make low-impact, total-body exercise possible for older adults of virtually all fitness levels and functional abilities.
NuStep recumbent cross-trainers feature:
- Low step-through design
- Locking feature to make getting on and off easier
- Wheelchair-height seat that swivels 360 degrees and a grab ring for extra support
- Smooth-stepping motion with user-controlled stride length
- Low-inertia start-up and multiple resistance levels
