                       Semi-Recumbent Elliptical

      Naturally smooth… positively effective!
       Combine the benefits of smooth, elliptical
 cross-training exercise with the comfort, safety
     and stability of semi-recumbent positioning.

  Zero joint impact plus biomechanically correct
              arm, leg and ankle motion emulates
                        natural walking patterns.

                                                      The BioStep® by Biodex has been a great addition to our facility! It allows more range of motion than our

                                                      replacements, etc. It is popular with our older population, especially those who are intimidated by some
                                                      of our other hi-tech equipment. It also serves well with our disabled members, allowing them to slide into

Medicine, Cardiac Rehabilitation,                     need more of a challenge and for athletes who are coming off an injury and need to do something non-
Neurorehabilitation, Senior Centers and more          weight bearing. I would recommend the BioStep for any facility as a must-have piece of equipment.
