Rehabilitation Exercise

Unlike conventional exercise which relies solely on your own muscle power, assisted exercise allows you to work passively or actively depending on your strength. This means when muscles are weak due to illness or surgery you can still exercise and go through large groups of muscle movements. The health benefits of exercise speeds up the recovery process and gets you back to normal movement faster than if you did nothing at all. The great thing also is you will feel no pain after the exercise as the equipment assists you to do the exercise.
