The SilverFit Newton provides exercises in game form for your existing strength training equipment. Strength training exercises are often repetitive and many people find them tedious. The games used by SilverFit Newton make strength building exercises fun and dynamic. The Newton can be used on each type of equipment that uses a set of weights, such as the pulley, or leg press. The patient plays the game on a user-friendly touch screen.
Strength training exercises in rehabilitation
Although functional training is often preferred, strength training exercises play an important role in rehabilitation. For example, exercises on a leg press after an orthopaedic surgery; recuperating from sarcopenia after long-term bed rest. Often these exercises are repetitive and have to be performed over a period of time.
Exercises in the form of games
Games motivate people more than straightforward exercises. The games used on the Newton are professionally designed in terms of graphics, sound, and game layout. The level can be adjusted to suit the abilities and experience of the patient.
Exercise with feedback
The SilverFit Newton can also be used to make standard exercises easier. For example, counting down the number of repetitions by indicating the pattern in which the exercises are done, or by measuring the recovery time.
The SilverFit Newton can also assist in taking a series of standard tests, such as the 1RM test. Whereby a series of interpolations calculate the maximum weight that is to be lifted.
