Naturally Smooth... Positively Effective
With its feature-rich design, the versatile and durable Biodex BioStep can accommodate a wide variety of users and promote general strengthening and conditioning for any age group. BioStep is simple to use, requires minimal supervision and allows exercise to progress at a natural pace.
The BioStep Semi-Recumbent Elliptical is naturally smooth and continuous, offering exceptional comfort. Its low-impact, elliptical motion reduces the jarring start/stop direction change often associated with other recumbent steppers, eliminating the need for users to lift or strike their feet on the footplate. The step-through frame, easy-to-use display, and comfortable robust design, make the BioStep the obvious choice for cross training.
Safe, Low-Impact Exercise
The fluid, elliptical motion is forgiving on the knees, ankles, hips and lower back…a natural closed-chain, low-impact, functional exercise. The BioStep reduces joint impact because the user is not required to lift and strike their feet on the walking surface. By combining lower extremity motion with upper body exercise, the BioStep provides a total body workout in both forward and reverse directions, thereby involving different muscle groups.
Ideal for Older Adults
The low-impact elliptical motion of the BioStep also helps strengthen the muscles important to maintaining function – those muscles specifically associated with mobility, gait and balance.
Promotes Cardiovascular Wellness
BioStep incorporates both the upper and lower extremities into the cycling motion; users experience less local muscle fatigue. This allows similar heart rates to be achieved at lower rates of perceived exertion when compared to traditional exercise ergometers. Blood pressures can be checked by simply releasing one arm while the other three extremities comfortably continue to perform the exercise.
Aerobic Conditioning for Older Adults
BioStep provides a zero impact, safe and comfortable total body workout in both forward and reverse directions, making it ideal for general aerobic conditioning of your adult population.
Articulating hand grips and footplates add comfort while strengthening the primary muscles associated with balance, gait and mobility.
