Remember that Physical Therapy Works!
There’s so much research showing that physical therapy works, so why do only 35 percent of patients fully adhere to their course of care? It’s hard enough for physical therapists to keep us compliant at home when we are in their care, but we’re even less compliant once we’re out of their hands. All this leads to a revolving door of health complications that pretty much defines Albert Einstein’s definition of insanity, which is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
It’s Time to Break the Cycle of Non PT Compliance
No single exercise program can fix all home compliance physical therapy exercise woes. However, what we have done at Excy is found a way to promote the same exercises as stationary recumbent bikes and upper-body ergometers, two of the most-frequently used pieces of equipment in the rehab space, at home with out the big, expensive, and socially isolating limitations offered by bulky exercise equipment. Plus, we have live, on-demand, and guided training for inspiration.
Recumbent Exercise Bike Workouts Can Make PT Fun
In today’s Excy live stream, we showcase Excy as a stationary recumbent exercise bike with a comfortable chair. At only 14 pounds, Excy folds for easy storage and transport, yet offers the quality of exercise equipment found in physical therapy clinics and gyms. Our patented approach prevents the system from scooting. It’s something you can use every day whenever and wherever you want, but also build a bridge between what happens in the clinic and what happens at home and work. It will also set you up to keep exercising once you graduate from PT. Simply, put your Excy system in the car and take it to the clinic with you to incorporate into your physical therapy routine. Then, bring it home and even take it to work for quick physical therapy breaks throughout the day. These tips from physical therapist can help you and your therapist get started with Excy.
Today’s Stationary Recumbent Exercise Bike Workout
Recumbent Bikes Are in Nearly Every PT Clinic, So Why Not at Home?
Physical therapy clinics are amazing in their ability to provide you with high quality stationary recumbent exercise bikes, however when it comes to home usage, these bikes often command high prices, take up a lot of space, and can be pretty socially isolating to a boring room. Tack on trying to get fit when you’re disabled from an injury or disease and traditional exercise equipment just doesn’t cut it.
So, next time you find yourself watching your favorite TV show in your favorite chair with your family, not doing your physical therapy exercises, consider the opportunity to turn that chair into a quality stationary recumbent exercise bike.
