ThoraxTrainerTM is efficient for seniors with balance disturbances, not able to exercise according to traditional training methods as walking, biking or running. The easy “walk in” construction makes it completely uncomplicated to access the ThoraxTrainer.
Training in ThoraxTrainerTM gives the elderly a safe and gentle training for improvement of endurance, core, upper body strength and balance. This will in the long run enable them to cope better with their daily life and its physical duties and challenges.
TRAINING FOR DISABLED PEOPLE
ThoraxTrainer has proven to be an efficient training tool for wheelchair users, amputees, visually impaired and people suffering from other disabilities.
From a seated position on a bench or chair, wheelchair users can use both diagonal and double poling, getting a unique cardiovascular and strengthening exercise of their upper body. Blind and visually impaired are able to train alone in a safe environment.

A group of Danish wounded veterans raced the 90 km XC race Vasaloppet with only four months of preparation.
“As a group we are always challenged by our difference in injuries. Different injuries mean different abilities in different types of sport. With ThoraxTrainerTM we finally found a training machine that we all could use together at the same time. ThoraxTrainer is very useful, and even though our cross country activities have come to an end, we continue to use the ThoraxTrainerTM, because it is the only way we can get a full body workout and cardio training without splitting the team up in different machines with different intervals.”

“XC ski exercises is one of the most efficient training methods for everyone. ThoraxTrainer™ is the only fitness machine that activates all the muscles at once, but what I am particularly interested in are the other benefits from XC ski training. In addition to core training, which is extremely important for all of us, ThoraxTrainer™ improves balance enormously. It is very important for many of the people I work with through their rehabilitation.”

“I used the ThoraxTrainer™ as part of my rehabilitation when I had torn my ligaments in the knee. It has been a huge win for me to use this form of exercise because I can combine the less fun core workouts, with an effective cardio workout. I was actually able to reduce my body fat percentage, during my rehab – which is a good indicator that this type of training form give good results.”
