Philips Medical 7.0S Adjustable Recumbent Stepper

Spirit Fitness

A commercial semi-recumbent step machine designed for use in medical and specialized care applications for muscular and cardiopulmonary rehabilitation and physical therapy. The Philips Medical 7.0S Adjustable Recumbent Stepper facilitates full body exercise in coordinated, linear, natural 1:1 leg and arm motion. Self-adjustable stroke length accommodates patients’ specific range of motion capabilities, providing low impact movement for knees, ankles, and hips in a semi-recumbent position that is safe for lower back support and allows use by wheelchair patients and balance-impaired users.

Versatile for different training emphasis, 7.0S’s unique quadrilateral exercise pattern allows users to selectively distribute different extent of exercise efforts across their four limbs. Limbs that input more force can efficiently lead less involved limbs to functional movements and maintain elevated heart rate. A low inertia starting at 5 watts translates to smoothness; the work rate can increase up to 750 watts, accompanied by different step speeds of the user’s choice.

Spirit Medical Systems Group, the medical division of Spirit Fitness, offers a full series of medical-grade cardio equipment including bi-directional treadmills, recumbent steppers, upright ergometer bikes, and recumbent ergometer bikes. Spirit medical cardio machines offer specialized functionality, ergonomics, programmability, and accessibility designed to meet the needs of both doctors and patients alike. In addition to standard hospital and physical therapy application, Spirit Medical Systems treadmills, steppers, and cycle ergometers are ideally suited for use in Veteran Affairs medical centers (VAMC), university research hospitals, Wounded Warrior care centers, sports rehabilitation centers, neurological clinics, elderly care facilities, and pediatric treatment centers.

Philips Medical 7.0S Adjustable Recumbent Stepper Features:

  • Step-through frame design
  • Linked upper and lower body linear pattern
  • Natural Motion: 1:1 leg to arm ratio
  • Adjustable position handles: With articulating hand grips
  • Cushioned footplates: With stabilization straps
  • Adjustable step range: From 1 inch to 12.5 inches
  • Resistance mode: Isokinetic - Step speeds from 10 to 210 steps/minute
  • Low inertia: Starting resistance of 5 watts
  • Work Rate: Range from under 5 watts up to 750 watts
  • Heart rate monitoring: Both handle held and telemetry
  • Multiple seat adjustments: 8 position swivel seat with seat belt for patient safety and ease of patient ingress and egress | 6 position recline seat back for hip angle adjustments | Fore/aft patient positioning
  • Intuitive interface for ease of operation
  • Large, easy-to-read displays: Time, Speed (steps per minute), Step Length, Step Count, Watts, Calories, METs, Heart Rate, Resistance Level, Symmetry, and much more
  • Programs include: Manual, Hill, Plateau, Interval, Facility, HR and Symmetry
  • Unique Symmetry program: Measures and displays power throughout the pedal stroke. Biofeedback encourages patients to maintain power between right and left side
  • Measurement of Bi-Lateral Power: Example: "Left 41 watts - Right 34 watts"
  • Isokinetic resistance: Safe and accommodating resistance that is patient determined throughout the entire range of motion
  • Power Train: Heavy duty, 8 groove poly-v belt for smooth, quiet operation. The foot pedal assembly rides on high-end linear bearings and guides
  • Braking Device: Eddy Current Brake (Quiet, frictionless and maintenance free). Small flywheel mass ensures a minimum starting torque providing low inertia

Advantages and Clinical Applications:

  • Combined upper and lower body movements: Provides full body workout, building strength and range-of-motion and utilizing wellness programs to increase longevity
  • Dependently linked, linear motion pedals: Enables users to self-adjust the stroke length to accommodate their range-of-motion capabilities
  • Closed kinetic chain: Provides low impact movement with minimal stress on knees, ankles, hips and low back in a safe and comfortable semi-recumbent position
  • Quadrilateral exercise pattern: Allows users to distribute the exercise efforts across four limbs. By reducing the effort from the involved limb and transferring a greater effort to the uninvolved limbs, they will maintain an elevated heart rate to achieve exercise potential.
  • Applications include: Orthopedic, Sports Medicine, Neurological, and Cardiac Rehabilitation as well as Senior Rehab and Wellness Training

Optional Accessories:
