Zero minimum resistance
The zero minimum resistance and stepless resistance adjustment (a choice of 100g or 1KG) of HUR machines is perfect for seniors. For many other brands, minimum resistance starts at several kilos and resistance is increased in 2.5 kg increments. In such cases, that all-important progression in strength training is not realised in an optimal manner and sometimes even the smallest amount of resistance can simply be too much especially for those with very little strength.
The 2019 Public Health Guidelines for those 65+ recommend that individuals strength train at least 2 days a week. Research shows we lose approximately 7-10% of our muscle mass per decade from the age of 30, making simple tasks like getting out of a chair increasingly difficult in later years. Through this zero resistance our HUR equipment enables those of all abilities to strength train.
HUR machines function through a resistance method that employs a natural transmission of power, Natural Transmission™, which simulates the natural function/movement of your muscles. Using pneumatic technology and lever arms, resistance is adjusted in accordance with your muscles’ natural generation of muscular force. All HUR machines work both concentric and eccentric phases.
