SportsArt Fitness ellipticals offer one of the longest stride ranges in the industry, which is also preferred by many physical therapists for rehab purposes.
Rancho Cucamonga, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) April 15, 2011
Retailer Ironcompany.com, Inc. has recently added the SportsArt E870 elliptical fitness trainer to its extensive catalog based on the results of an independent elliptical trainer study published in The Journal of Physical Therapy article “Similarity of Joint Kinematics and Muscle Demands Between Elliptical Training and Walking: Implications for Practice.” The article compared four popular elliptical trainers to see which, if any, were superior for rehabilitation use. The study found that the E870 elliptical by SportsArt Fitness most closely replicates the walking motion, in comparison to the other ellipticals studied. “Natural movement to provide the most comfortable and realistic workout experience is ultimately what the user wants,” shares Ironcompany.com, Inc. owner and president J.P. Brice.
Specifically the study found that:
- Truck flexion and pelvic tilt during walking were most closely simulated by the SportsArt
E870 – less trunk flexion benefits individuals suffering from low back pain and/or injuries.
- SportsArt’s handle placement helps keep users more upright throughout the workout.
- The E870 increased duration of tibialis anterior muscle activity (front of the shin) – training
this muscle over time helps combat the occurrence of shin splints.
- All ellipticals provided a fairly equivalent exercise experience in terms of muscles
This study compared the SportsArt Fitness E870, Life Fitness X7, Octane Fitness Pro4500
and True Fitness Technology TSXa. Kinematic, electromyographic (EMG), and stride
characteristic data were recorded while 20 different subjects trained on each elliptical.
SportsArt Fitness ellipticals offer one of the longest stride ranges in the industry, which is also
preferred by many physical therapists for rehab purposes. Ironcompany.com, Inc. based its decision to spotlight the SportsArt E870 in its commercial catalog on these compelling study-winning features.
