THE ULTIMATE ROBOTIC MACHINE
FOR REHAB & TRAINING

VARIABLE LOAD CURVE METHOD

In the traditional systems of isotonic training (weights, barbells, machines) the weight is always the same during exercise.

The biomechanical analysis has shown that the muscle can express different strength values at different angles of work. A fixed isotonic load therefore cannot effectively stimulate the muscle along the entire range of movement:

  • It is excessive in the  critical points (open and closed angles)

  • It is too weak where the muscle can insted express it’s maximum strength

KINEO: THE VARIABLE LOAD REVOLUTION

Variable Load Method VCL - Globus Ireland

The Variable Load Method allows to optimize the neuro-muscolar stimulation across the full range of movement by means of specific load curve

Custom Variable Load

For the first time with Kineo it’s possible to program a load curve according to the real strength of the subject

Preventing joint overload

With this method the joints can be protected at critical work points, while allowing maximum expression of strength and maximum training effect in the most favorable working angles.

In the graphs, we can see an example of how three different load curves can stimulate muscle and joints in a completely different way.
