Eccentric exercise: How important is it within rehabilitation and how do we best use it? Webinar

28th August 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm



Eccentric exercise, muscles lengthening under force, has long been recognised as highly effective by Orthopaedic and Physiotherapy thought leaders. Until now, there wasn’t a proven device to deliver the benefits of eccentric resistance in a safe, closed chain manner. This session will dive further into the science of eccentric exercise and how the BTE Eccentron allows you to offer controlled but and targeted isolated eccentric exercise to nearly any client case, specific to each patient. Built on years of research & development in the growing field of eccentric resistance training, BTE Eccentron is THE eccentric resistance strength trainer with objective measures and results tracking. Helping clinicians deliver better outcomes, faster.
Eccentric muscle work occurs every day when a muscle lengthens under force: as when lowering a weight, descending stairs, or walking down a hill. Eccentric work provides unique responses and benefits compared to concentric exercise.
– Higher Resistance Capacity: Body can resist 30-40% more weight (eccentric) than it can push (concentric)
– Low Oxygen Requirement: 80% less O2 needed due to muscles resisting rather than doing concentric work
– Lower Perceived Exertion: Comfortably produce more force output than in a traditional concentric exercise



This webinar will be lead by Jeff Johnson, who is clinical specialist at BTE Technologies. He will examine the latest research and discuss how other centres are integrating the Eccentron in to their practice. We will also discuss return on investment as well as how to market the technology to grow your business 
All of our webinars are designed to offer you FASTER, BETTER, SMARTER ways to manage your patients AND business.
