Lake Erie Medical of Ohio Announces the New TechTrainer, Groundbreaking Equipment for Strength Conditioning











TechTrainer High Performance Pneumatic Conditioning System


Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) May 11, 2009

Lake Erie Medical of Ohio, in cooperation with BTE Technologies and Keiser Corporation, announces the launch of TechTrainerâ„¢ High Performance Pneumatic Conditioning System, a ground- breaking computerized athletic training and strength conditioning solution that sets a new standard for smaller, affordable equipment.

The companies have incorporated years of research with professional sports teams into the TechTrainer's development. They integrated the real-time feedback and functional analysis features that are integral to its high-end equipment into the TechTrainer, but designed it as a smaller, more compact solution for private practice physical therapists and smaller businesses. The TechTrainer's technology meshes with the multiplanar, bilateral cable system originally developed by Keiser, a leader in strength, conditioning and fitness equipment.

The TechTrainer provides athletic trainers and physical therapists with functional, objective, real-time feedback that they use to evaluate trends, imbalances, and improve athletic performance. The TechTrainer is used to establish baseline, symmetry, and progress.

"TechTrainer is 'marketable to the masses'," explains Tristan Tillette, president of Elite Sports Performance in Birmingham, Alabama, an early user of the TechTrainer. "We can evaluate an athlete's strengths with a level of data quality that hadn't been available before for smaller businesses and private practices."

BTE has been in the forefront of work with athletic trainers from professional basketball, baseball, football, and Olympic sports teams with its PrimusRS and wanted a compact athletic training unit with the most valued computerized assessment options. The TechTrainer is one of BTE's most compact pieces of equipment, and it can be utilized in a corner. It sells at an affordable price point.

In addition to sports performance, research has proven that exercise and wellness programs can greatly improve the quality of life of older adults. For example, low-impact, isotonic strength training can actually reverse the declines in functional ability associated with aging. The TechTrainer will afford senior living centers the technology to safely assess ability and prescribe age appropriate exercise programs.

The TechTrainer continues BTE's legacy of providing objectivity to isotonic functional performance for the demands of the advancing athletic training, rehabilitation, or fitness professional. Key product benefits include:


Simpler user interface - easier to set training programs for patients and allows busy trainers to quickly interpret results
Uses Keiser's Pneumatic Resistance technology. The pneumatic resistance technology facilitates optimal training and testing for motor control.
Robust training modes to provide a series of unique exercise routines
Endurance modes for building fatigue resistance
Double cable structure, facilitating greater movement

The TechTrainer is now shipping, and can be ordered as a stand-alone or can interface with modules in various customizable configurations.
