This device is engineered and manufactured in the USA and is unique in the marketplace for many reasons.
Isokinetics was particularly popular in the USA in the 60’s and 70’s. The resistance factor was determined by limiting the speed which ensured a maximum load of the muscles throughout the entire working range of motion. Most of those original devices such as the Cybex machine did not mimic functional movement patterns but rather open chain movements such as leg extensions. The Isokinetic resistance of those machines is defined as being a set speed.
The SSL Accelerating Isokinetic Machine is an improvement on the original concept of isokinetic resistance as the speed of this machine increases with an increase in the force applied by the athlete. The resistance, therefore is a function of the force applied by the athlete and not the magnitude of the external load as is the case in conventional weightlifting exercises. This allows for the training and improvement of the rate of force production by the athlete. This of course is the most important aspect in all human performance.
• Accommodates to the athlete’s capabilities throughout the range of motion, not the athlete accommodating to the resistance.
• Automatically accommodates to muscular fatigue or pain as well as the increases in strength from the training and eliminates the possibility of injury during training.
• Provides muscles with near maximal load on each repetition of the exercise independent of mechanical advantage without risk to any connective tissue.
• Forces muscles to work with maximal effort all the time rendering a larger, faster increase in strength in comparison to any other known device in the marketplace.
