Pedal Exerciser Devices for Upper and Lower Body Exercise and Rehabilitation
Pedal exercisers are designed so that the upper extremities as well as the lower extremities can be exercised while sitting, and are portable so they can be transported to other clinics, when making home health visits, for home use or as a workplace exercise device when sitting at your desk, etc. When one considers the adverse health effects associated with long-term sitting where little movement takes place, the ability to pedal while at your desk or at home while sitting can convert the risk (just sitting) to a healthy activity when you must be sitting.
As an upper body exerciser, they are positioned table-top and the pedals serve as ergonomic hand grips, and for lower body exercise they are placed on the floor with the pedals serving a sure grip for foot placement.
Most pedal exercisers have easy to turn control knobs to increase or decrease the resistance suitable making them suitable for a wide range of strength and endurance capabilities among people, as well as to provide progressive overload so that a person can continue their progression toward their goals.
