The Home Trainer for Active or Passive Rehabilitation

The Active Passive Trainer (APT) is a family of unique exercise rehabilitation trainers for upper or lower limbs. The APT offers benefits that rehabilitation professionals expect from a medical device that is quality engineered and FDA and CE registered. The APT is commonly used in physiotherapy clinics in the USA and around the world and over the years  multiple clinical studies have confirmed the benefits of the trainer.

The wide range of exercise options makes the APT suitable for use by the healthy and independent senior citizen for the maintenance of fitness and physical well-being, and also for the physically impaired of all ages, as part of a planned rehabilitation program and as a supplement to physiotherapy.

The Active Passive Trainer has been in use in physiotherapy and rehabilitation centers for over 25 years and is now available for home use so that you can continue your rehabilitation, without having to leave your home.

For less than the price of a coffee a day, you can own a personal medical trainer to be used in the comfort and safety of your own home, away from the crowds, and continue your rehabilitation at your own pace. The trainers are available for purchase, or you can lease a unit and we will ship it directly to your home.

    How does the APT Trainer work?

    Increases range of motion

    The APT trainer facilitates the performance of repetitive movements of the upper and lower extremities. Using the Passive and Passive Assist modes enables users to moderately increase the passive range of motion of the major joints. Once obtained, a novel range of motion should be followed by Active Mode training for muscle conditioning

    Reduces spasms

    Passive and Passive Assist modes facilitate slow and controlled rhythmic movements of the extremities. Users with increased muscle tone due to neurological conditions may benefit from using these modes.  Training with the Passive Assist and Active mods may increase muscle strength and reduce the demanded effort for performing movements.

    Improves walking capabilities

    Training with the APT helps to improve walking distance and speed. This improvement is achieved mainly by improving the aerobic capacity of the circulatory and respiratory systems, along with increasing the major muscles’ resistance to fatigue.

    Increases muscle strength

    The APT trainer enables muscle strength training by concentrically flexing and extending the main joints of the extremities, using five distinct levels of resistance. Additionally, trunk muscle strength and postural control can improve while sitting unsupported.

    FDA Registered Rehabilitation Trainer

    The road may seem insurmountable, but know that you are not the first to be in this position. Thousands of users have found that movement therapy can help achieve goals at home with the aid of medical rehabilitation training devices. The APT Trainer was developed specifically to help with movement therapy.

    Key Features and Benefits of the APT Trainer

    Active Training

    Active training, user activity rotates the pedals against pre-set resistance

    Passive Training

    Passive Training, APT moves the user’s limbs at pre-set adjustable speeds

    Passive Assist Training

    Passive Assist, the user increases the pre-set speed, actively

    Upper or lower training

    APT can be used with both the upper limbs (arms) or lower limbs (legs)

    Improve strength and endurance

    Active training improves the user’s strength and endurance

    Improve blood circulation and muscle tone

    The movement of the limbs increases blood circulation and improves muscle tone

    Increased range of motion

    Rotation of the limbs using the APT increases the user’s range of motion

    Decrease spasms and swelling

    The movement of the limbs can reduce spasms and reduce swelling

    Auto reverse feature ensures release of seized muscles

    If a muscle seizes, the APT stops rotation and automatically reverses direction

    Five speeds for passive exercising

    The APT has 5 preset rotation speeds for the optimal individual speed setting

    Five levels of resistance for active exercising

    The APT has five preset resistance settings for the optimal individual setting

    Adjustable radius of rotation of hand grips or footrest

    The radius can be adjusted to enables the user to select the individual range of motion
