Physical therapists, occupational therapists and athletic trainers are continuously faced with the challenges of finding cost effective and efficient ways of reducing pain, preventing injury and restoring functional movement for a range of clients. For many, the answer can be found in the Burn Machine’s versatility, which provides endless potential applications in a variety of care plans.
Prestigious institutions across the country, including the Shriners Hospital for Children in Chicago and the Kennedy Krieger Institute at John Hopkins in Baltimore, are incorporating The Burn Machine's products into their facilities because the machines are cost-effective, space-efficient, highly effective tools.
The Burn Machine's unique design allows users to get a cardiovascular workout from virtually any position—standing, sitting or even reclining. This feature is highly beneficial for wheelchair users or others with limited lower-body mobility. It improves muscular strength and endurance, while also increasing range of motion, particularly in the shoulders, forearms and wrists.
The Burn Machine is also an excellent alternative to the larger, more expensive upper-body ergometer (UBE) machines that are commonly found in rehabilitation clinics. Completely portable, the Burn Machine provides clients the independence of a workout without the need to transfer onto a large piece of equipment.
On March 3rd, 2011, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) awarded the Burn Machine SB-4 with its official endorsement due to the unit's portability, similarity in function to an upper-body ergometer, and its low cost.
The Universal Barbell, like the Burn Machine, also features 360-degree rotating grips that help users increase their range of motion while engaging and strengthening muscles. These ergonomically designed handles make it easy to find the safest, most comfortable and efficient positions for hands and wrists.
