How the Excy Exercise Equipment Rental Program Works

Non-Weight Bearing Exercise Drive Month-to-Month Rental Program
Many people rely on Excy for exercise endorphins while recovering from a lower extremity injury or surgery. In these situations, they use Excy for arm bike workouts for moderate to vigorous exercise while having non-weight bearing exercise restrictions. This allows them to get their heart pumping by using their arms, while giving their legs a rest. As restrictions are removed and weight-bearing exercises are allowed, they then coordinate their lower extremity rehabilitation on Excy with their physical therapists. As a result, we made sure to offer a month-to-month exercise equipment rental program so that people could use Excy for short periods of time and then return it when done.
Excy works like a traditional upper body ergometer, yet is small and offers more versatility while seated, standing, and kneeling. Offering multiple arm bike positions, Excy can be used to engage virtually every muscle in your upper body to focus on building strength, endurance, intensity, agility, stability, flexibility and balance. Research shows that upper limb exercise can lead to higher heart rates than lower limb exercise, including the American Council on Exercise (ACE), demonstrating the ability to burn 9 – 11 calories per minute with upper body cycling. The resistance range and adjustability of Excy’s upper body ergometer makes it the perfect arm bike for medical fitness, athletic training, non-weight bearing exercise, and for health conscious individuals.

Consistent Access to Medical Fitness Drives Rent-to-Own Program
Excy sees nearly an equal amount of purchases from those living with longer-term disabilities, chronic conditions, and injuries like Parkinson’s disease, MS, arthritis, spinal cord injuries heart disease, POTS and more. For these customers, we introduced our rent-to-own program. Excy adjusts easily to become a gym quality recumbent exercise bike, upper body ergometer, step cycle, bed pedal exerciser, and range of motion trainer. Since Excy is portable, the device is easy for people to coordinate with their physical therapist, doctor, or personal trainer specializing in medical fitness to create custom therapeutic cycling exercise experiences for home, work, and while traveling to achieve successful health outcomes. We are excited about the new rental programs for PTs and patients and hope people take advantage of Excy’s size and versatility to help produce better outcomes by having greater continuity of care between the clinic and home.
For example, Excy customer Kristy got a new heart in July and is supported with home physical therapy and occupational therapy services offered by Evergreen Health in Kirkland, WA. She loves that Excy is small enough to fold up and fit in her closet, yet performs better than the recumbent bike that turned into a dust collector and couldn’t be used after having stroke complications from postpartum heart failure. She pedals the Excy XCS 260 as a recumbent bike from her wheelchair under the supervision of her home physical therapists. In addition, she uses same device with her home occupational therapists as she work on rehabilitating her partially paralyzed arm.
