Strenghtening auxiliary respiratory muscles
The fear of breathlessness keeps many COPD patients from doing sports regularly. This behavior however favors the progression of the illness. Adequate forms of training positively influence lung function, muscle mass and quality of life.
The function “ServoCycling” helps COPD patients to enter slowly into movement training and to increase performance level systematically. COPD patients can train with the motor-driven MOTOmed movement therapy device from chair or wheelchair with and without support or passively with motor.
Regular MOTOmed movement and a targeted usage of the arm / upper body trainer (accessory) strengthens the auxiliary respiratory muscles. The training with the MOTOmed movement therapy device can facilitate breathing; improve physical condition and the entire cardiovascular system.
