Think you've used gym equipment before? Think again. The unique Kieser equipment is the highest quality strength training equipment available
Our Unique Equipment
The machines – an essential part of our concept
For both our physiotherapy and strength training programs we use machines tested by TÜV, the German Technical Inspectorate, capable of providing dynamic strength training with a variable resistance. These unique machines reflect ergonomic principles and changes in physiological tension during the exercise. These factors together with minimal friction and the ability to set very precise training weights reduce wear and tear on internal components of the machine and so extend machine life.
The therapy machines are designed so that they can not only test muscle strength with great accuracy but can also provide the required strengthening therapy. The particular features are:
- Restraint system which isolates target muscles
- Counter-weight which offset gravitational forces
- Measurement of soft-tissue tone and net muscle strength
- Isometric testing over the entire range of motion
- Muscle fibre type identification through fatigue response test
- Eccentric and concentric exercises
- Load on muscles corresponds to physiological strength curve
Kieser Lumbar Extension Machine (LE)
The range of motion of the trunk is made up of pelvic rotation (110 degrees) and lumbar spine extension (72 degrees). In order to strengthen the deep muscles of the lumbar spine, we need to exclude pelvic rotation by immobilising the pelvis. This allows us to target the back extensor muscles in isolation and effectively build up their strength.
Isolated Lumbar Extension Exercise has been shown to:
- Reduce pain
- Increase strength
- Improve function
- Increase bone density
- Increase muscle size
- Decrease number of injuries
- Decrease WorkCover cost per injury
- Reduce the need for surgery
- Decrease time off work after surgery
