The World’s First Semi-Recumbent Elliptical Cross Trainer, Just Got Better!

Shirley, NY, June 7, 2012—Biodex has redesigned their semi-recumbent elliptical cross trainer, recently re-introduced as the NEW BioStep 2 with exceptional ergonomic comfort. Its low-impact elliptical motion reduces the jarring start/stop direction change often associated with other recumbent steppers, eliminating the need for users to lift or strike their feet on the footplate.  Pivoting hand grips and articulating footplates add to the comfort while strengthening the primary muscles associated with balance, gait and mobility. BioStep 2 is simple to use, requires minimal supervision and allows exercise to progress at a natural pace.

 “The BioStep 2 has been one of the most successful pieces of equipment in our fitness centers,” states Lisa Bloder, Wellness Coordinator of Westminster Services, Florida. “The smooth movement makes it easy for anyone to use, while providing a great upper and lower body workout. Residents have been able to use the BioStep 2 even when they have been unable to use any other piece of equipment - and their results have been outstanding.” >>
