Overview

Design your spaceNaturally Smooth... Positively Effective


The elliptical motion of the BioStep 2 is naturally smooth and continuous; very different from the stuttering stop-start motion associated with other recumbent steppers. The step-through frame, simple easy-to-see and use display and comfortable, robust design make the BioStep 2 the obvious choice for cross training.

The Biodex BioStep 2 Helps Patients and Their Therapists Achieve Multiple Rehabilitation Objectives
If there is one piece of equipment for all your patients... this is it. The BioStep 2’s fluid, elliptical motion is forgiving on the knees, ankles, hips and lower back… a natural closed-chain low-impact functional exercise. The BioStep 2 reduces joint impact because the user is not required to lift and strike their feet on the walking surface. By combining lower extremity motion with upper body, the BioStep 2 provides a total body workout in both forward and reverse directions, thereby involving different muscle groups.

Ideal for Older Adults
Low impact total body exercise is ideal for senior fitness. The low-impact elliptical motion of the BioStep 2 reduces the jarring impact often associated with the stop-start motion so common with other recumbent steppers. The BioStep 2’s motion also helps strengthen the muscles important to maintaining function; those muscles specifically associated with mobility, walking and balance.

Great for Cardiac Rehabilitation
BioStep 2 incorporates both the upper and lower extremities into the cycling motion; patients experience less local muscle fatigue. This allows similar heart rates to be achieved at lower rates of perceived exertion when compared to traditional exercise ergometers. Blood pressures can be checked while the patient continues to exercise by simply releasing one arm while the other three extremities comfortably continue to perform the exercise.

BioStep 2 is ideal for patients who may experience leg claudication during exercise. Patients can easily reduce the effort in the involved leg, while keeping heart rate elevated, by transferring a greater portion of the workload to the non-involved extremities. When the cramping subsides, exercise can be transferred back, proportionately, to all four extremities.

Wellness/General Aerobic Conditioning
BioStep 2 provides a zero impact, safe and comfortable total body workout in both forward and reverse directions, making it ideal for general aerobic conditioning of your adult population.
