Title: ECCENTRIC EXERCISE TRAINING DEVICE
Abstract:
The eccentric exercise training device (10) includes a housing (H) that supports a floating platform (12) and encapsulates a motor and mechanisms (M) for driving the platform (12). The platform (12) is positioned to allow easy access. An oval-configured handrail (16) partially surrounds the platform (12) and is provided with multiple user positions, which are each equipped with operational controls (20a, 22a). The floating platform (12) tilts in movements that mimic the eccentric muscle movements encountered when skiing, landing from a jump or run, walking down stairs, etc. The platform (12) is provided with markings (24) to assist in locating a user's preferred, most comfortable stance. A centrally positioned display panel (18) includes user-friendly programming and LCD readouts, and such electronic adjuncts as WiFi and USB ports.
