The Pendulum Stepper was designed by a physical therapist to make improving the strength and endurance of the stepping motion simple, effective and convenient.
It is a light, mobile, self-assisted trainer of reciprocal stepping. Unlike a bicycle, the Pendulum Stepper more closely mimics the stepping motion used in walking. The Pendulum Stepper allows for active assist from the user’s arms by using the arm extensions.
Elastic resistance may be gradually added to increase the level of difficulty and, at the same time, ease the return motion. It can be used from a either a chair or wheelchair and from a supine position for those unable sit up.
