Designed for Seniors


HUR is a specialized strength training solution specifically designed for older adults in senior living, active aging, inclusive wellness and rehabilitation centers.  Our equipment provides a safe, easy to use, and effective full-body workout for wellness, preventive, rehabilitative, and maintenance training. 


Pneumatic Strength Training

HUR's pneumatic (air-resistance) strength training equipment is specifically designed to provide older adults with safe, targeted training appropriate for a diverse range of ability and stamina levels.

Pneumatic technology follows the natural movement of the muscle and is easy on joints and muscles. 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.

It is safe, easy to use and effective and both low and high movement speeds. 


“I started strength training for the first time in my life because we have the HUR equipment.  Before, I was intimidated and afraid I’d do it wrong.  But, the HUR Smart Technology takes all the guesswork out and gave me the confidence to go for it.  Today, I feel stronger than ever.  It’s especially nice to get in a workout that targets every muscle group in just 35 minutes!”

~Ann Riley, resident at Presbyterian Village North


Easy-to-Use Equipment

HUR SmartTouch, an intuitive touch screen interface, makes strength training easy for the older adult. With one swipe of a wristband, the machine automatically loads the senior's personalized strength training program, adjusts the seat, and sets the strength training resistance level.  HUR SmartTouch makes independent training less intimidating for seniors, empowering and motivating them to take charge of their health.

HUR dual-function and multi-function strength-training equipment is designed to deliver coordinated training of multiple muscle groups, without moving from machine to machine. And it’s been designed with simple access in mind, making it ideal for older adults and people with (or without) wheelchairs to switch between exercises for targeted training that builds whole body strength.

Structured Independence 

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. The machine loads the senior’s personalized exercise program, adjusts to custom settings, counts the repetitions, records progress, and provides an auditory prompt when the exercise is complete. Controlled resistance level increases can be programmed into each user's training plan, prompting the machine to automatically increase resistance by a specified amount when the user reaches a training milestone.

With HUR SmartTouch, seniors can also easily log in to track their progress, helping to fuel their motivation and strengthen their commitment to their health.

 

Evidence-Based Design

HUR equipment is backed by years of scientific research and development in collaboration with universities and leading experts in physiology and biomechanics worldwide. With the goal of complete customer satisfaction, HUR’s Quality Management System is certified according to ISO 13485:2003 and ISO 9001:2015, which covers the entire production process, from the choice of raw material to assembly, service and customer care.

Safety Comes First

Seniors train harder with lower risk of injury by starting out with zero starting load and gradually increasing resistance by ¼ pound increments. Zero starting load is ideal for beginners and early initiation of rehabilitative therapy.

Every part of our equipment has been designed with safety in mind:

  • Easy access hand grips
  • Foot support and safety belt
  • Reversible back support and reversible roller for easy on and off access
  • Locking Mechanism Base plate allows for safe operation without having to be fixed to the floor
  • Zero starting load and small incremental adjustments (as low as ¼ lbs.)
  • Range limiters help ensure a safe and effective workout.
