LGT-5100D is an advanced rehab exercise bike for the active and passive movement of upper and lower limbs. It is an effective at-home rehab exercise bike for those suffering from neurological and mobility conditions, and you can train your body while sitting yourself in a wheelchair. Unlike traditional stationary bikes that must be powered entirely by the user, this physical therapy bike can help you exercise everyday regardless of your strength and endurance. The active passive trainer has four training modes (Passive Training, Constant Speed Training, Assisted Training, and Active Training) and spasticity control function.
As a low-impact exercise, this stationary bike provides lots of benefits for patients suffering from prolonged immobilization. It helps prevent muscle atrophy, osteoporosis, and joint spasm, improve blood circulation and cardiopulmonary function, increase joint range of motion, and enhance muscle strength and endurance.
Active Exercise: Active exercise requires the patients to exert efforts to carry out. It is designed to help prevent muscle atrophy, strengthen muscles, increase the range of motion, and improve coordination. Active exercise is good for people suffering from weak muscles, tendons, and other musculoskeletal components due to injuries, neurological disorders, etc. to build strength without spending too much effort.
Passive Exercise: Passive exercise is when patients don’t need to exert efforts to move their legs or arms; Someone or some device can help them move their muscles and joints through their full range of motion. Passive exercise is excellent for patients with paralysis on one side of the body or spasticity, helping improve blood flow in the affected areas, preventing spasticity from worsening, and increasing range of motion.

1. What is Kinesiotherapy?Kinesiotherapy, literally movement therapy, is the therapeutic treatment of disease by passive and active muscular movements (as by massage) and exercise. It is the core element of physiotherapy/physical therapy.
2. What are isometric exercises, isotonic exercises, and isokinetic exercises?Isometric exercises are strength training in which the joint angle and muscle length do not change during contraction. Isotonic exercises are that in an isotonic contraction, tension remains the same, whilst the muscle’s length changes. Isokinetic exercises are a type of strength training. It uses specialized exercise machines that produce a constant speed no matter how much effort you expend. These machines control the pace of an exercise by fluctuating resistance throughout your range of motion.
