HUR’s core offerings include TRAINING, TECHNOLOGY and TESTING equipment.
HUR's pneumatic equipment and automated SmartTouch technology sets us apart as the number one choice in the world for strength training solutions for active aging, senior living, rehabilitation and the inclusive wellness markets.
HUR’s pneumatic (air resistance) strength training equipment is specifically designed for older adults. It is safe, easy to use and effective at both low and high movement speeds. Seniors can train harder with lower risk of injury by starting out with zero starting load and gradually increase resistance by ¼ pound increments. The lack of inertia makes the machines ideally suitable for people undergoing rehabilitation, as well as for those who are training for strength maintenance and strength building purposes.

HUR SmartTouch is a computerized exercise and operating solution that empowers and motivates seniors to train often and with maximum effectiveness while automatically tracking individual and program data. With one swipe of the wristband the machine automatically loads the individual exercise program and specific seat settings. Data is automatically captured for each user, recording exercise and performance data, such as repetitions, resistance, and progress. This data can then be utilized in the development of the organizations goals and wellness initiatives. (Learn More)

HUR offers products and solutions for identifying baseline performance and assessing how much progress an individual is making within their personalized training program.
HUR SmartBalance assesses balance, accurately identifies users with a high risk for falling and can compare previous balance tests to see improvement. Customized training recommendations are provided to assist in implementing fall prevention and balance training programs.
Isometric testing with the HUR Performance Recorder can provide an accurate assessment of muscle function, strength and balance. Particularly useful to assess progress in a rehabilitation environment or research settings.
Supportive Supplemental Solutions
More than offering strength training equipment, HUR supplements these three core products with a variety of supporting solutions to provide a total system of strength training solutions to meet our clients’, and their clients’, needs.
Designing for a NEW AGE
HUR’s Scandinavian design and attractive sight lines provide a pleasing, sleek and non-threatening aesthetic for senior living, active aging and rehabilitation centers.
When planning a new gym or updating an existing facility, HUR helps you visualize the layout of a new center with three levels of planning services:
Basic Space-planning Footprint for Popular Equipment Configurations
We offer three fully rendered sample layouts for standard small, medium and larger popular equipment configurations.
Basic 2D and 3D Custom Layouts
Whether planning a new gym or updating an existing facility, basic 2D and 3D custom layouts can help visualize ideas.
Full Architectural Floor Planning
In addition, full architectural planning services with a HUR-approved design team are available to help maximize functionality, accessibility and comfort and provide graphic tools to support marketing and promotion. Additional fees apply.
HUR offers training and education for the equipment, the HUR SmartTouch solution. HUR also offers exclusive training on how to effectively strength train with older adults.
HUR’s products and senior exercise solutions are backed by 30 years of scientific research in collaboration with leading universities and research centers in physiology and biomechanics.
For seniors, muscular strength is directly connected to functional ability and balance control, both of which help in the management of every day chores. Research indicates that the correct type of resistance, or muscular training, help to maintain functional ability. Strength and balance training are shown to help decrease the amount of falls and resulting injuries by 15–50%.
Prescribed and supervised resistance training is an accepted component of rehabilitation programs for people with cardiac disease. Resistance training; that is properly implemented based on individual medical supervision, is proven to bring lower risks for the patient than aerobic endurance training.
Low Back Pain
Low back pain can be caused by lumbar sprain, spinal stenosis, disc herniation and different degenerative spinal disorders. Core strengthening (strengthening of the abdominal and low back muscles) is often helpful in relieving pain from degenerative disc disease. When the muscles around the disc become stronger, they may shield the disc from loads and may reduce pain. HUR offers a wide range of exercises for low back pain.
HUR offers solutions for equipment purchase, leasing and financing that can be applied to small, middle size and large projects.
Our business is helping our clients build their business and help their clients.
