Not many studies have been made for exercisers where the user is active using their muscles !
– Probably because it is so obvious that moving actively is more beneficial than having your legs / arms moved passively.
Numerous studies show that active training is beneficial to the “neuro – body connection” where the studies with passive exercisers mainly concentrate on the fact that your body can be moved passively.
Our BEAT Technology enables people with no walking ability and even paralysed people to exercise for hours every day.
This makes our LEMCO Combi Bike Plus exerciser the first choice for all customers trying it over the existing active/passive exercisers – and at a lower cost.
