Strong Knees

Muscles that support strong, healthy knees include the quadriceps (front of thigh), hamstrings (back of thigh), adductors (inside of thigh), abductors (outside of thigh) and gluteals (buttocks). You can strengthen all of these muscles with the MoveMor™ Lower Body Trainer from one seated position – just sit, strap feet in and get moving.

More Function, Less Pain

MoveMor’s unique design provides 360-degrees of movement, promoting flexibility and balanced strength. The 12-points of carefully-designed resistance gently engage multiple muscle groups surrounding the joint enhancing stability. According to the Harvard Health Publications, balanced muscle strength can hold the knee in the most functional and least painful position. Stronger muscles act as shock-absorbers, remove stress and help relieve knee pain. Healthier, happier knees start with impact and stress-free exercise using the MoveMor™ LBT.

Rehabilitation

When recovering from an injury or surgery, gentle exercise under the supervision of a healthcare professional will get you back on your feet sooner. Be sure to talk to your doctor or physical therapist about which exercises will best help meet your rehabilitation goals.

Customized Resistance

MoveMor™ gives you the ability to customize tube resistance to cater to your specific health needs. Six color-coded levels of progressive resistance are available. The tension is adjustable for individual tubes to address the strengths and weaknesses of each leg. For example, an old injury may necessitate a lighter tension on one side for a comfortable exercise experience.

Getting Started

Below are six basic (Level I) and intermediate (Level II) multi-planar exercises. Before using your MoveMor™ Lower Body Trainer, please read all the information in the Exercise Guide to allow for the best benefits and reduce the risk of injury.

General Instructions

Sit tall in a firm chair with hips slightly above or aligned with knees. Move slowly with control in a pain-free range of motion. Do warm-up activity for 5 minutes followed by strengthening exercises. When completed, stretch muscles to enhance flexibility. Breathe deeply throughout exercise activity. For a greater challenge, hold exercise for 2-5 seconds. Rest between sets as needed. Perform 1-3 sets of 8-15 repetitions, 2 to 3 times per week.
