Negative is the new positive
Eccentric exercise – muscles lengthening under force – has long been recognised as highly effective by Orthopaedic and Physical Therapy thought leaders. But until now, there wasn’t a proven device to deliver the benefits of eccentric resistance in a safe, closed chain manner.
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
Safely increase strength and stability for improved balance, mobility, and decreased fall risk
Offer unique wellness programs and monitor individual leg strength
Provide measurable strengthening for clients with low cardiac output
Enhance athletic performance
Build fast-twitch muscle fibres and enhance spring quality with high load
The power of eccentrics to your whole practice
Built on years of research & development
BTE’s objective, data-driven equipment is backed by expert training to take the guesswork out of physiotherapy, occupational therapy and sports medicine. Built on years of research & development in the growing field of eccentric exercise and resistance training, BTE Eccentron is the eccentric resistance strength trainer with objective measures and results tracking. Helping clinicians deliver better outcomes, faster.
