How to Use the VitaGlide®
VitaGlide® is easy. Position yourself between the arms of the “V” and raise or lower the VitaGlide® “V” so you can easily glide up and down the track. You’ll find that the “V” articulates 15” and has an inside width between the arms of 33”, accommodating both regular and power wheelchairs.
Resistance settings for each arm can be equal or independent. With this added functionality, you can now strengthen one arm by adjusting the resistance. This is helpful for? Or in instances? Where an injury or stroke leaves one arm needing specific attention. Plus, now you can enjoy alternative workouts as you simulate the motions of cross-country skiing (push-then-pull) or rowing (push together-pull together).
Monitoring Your Workout
Want to know how far, how intense, or how long your workout is? Now you’ll get that feedback from your VitaGlide® workout with the machine’s new interactive digital display. Distance (miles or kilometers), time (stopwatch or timer mode), and resistance will help you develop a workout routine that works for you.
The Glide Factor™ gives you, your therapist, or your trainer the opportunity to set goals for your workout. The Glide Factor™ is based on an algorithm that takes into consideration the work you do over a period of time. Set your Glide Factor™ goal, then establish your resistance levels and determine your time – want to see how fast you can achieve your Glide Factor™? Or if you can increase the resistance, but still meet your Glide Factor™ goal in a given period of time? Either way, you can optimize your workouts through goal setting and tracking your time, resistance, and Glide Factor™.
