- Technical characteristics
The Conical Pulley uses a technology called isoinertial. It consists of a set of mechanisms that reinforce the eccentric part of the movement; formed by three phases: concentric (against gravity), isometric (the point at which muscle contraction is maintained, but without movement) and eccentric (slowing down the action of gravity). It has been shown that emphasizing this last phase helps prevent injuries.
The structural base resides in flywheels or inertia wheels. When we undertake the force in the concentric phase, the machine stores the generated kinetic energy in different ways. This is returned in the eccentric phase and the subject will have to stop said inertia.
One of the most used in injury prevention is eccentric training.
- The benefits of using isoinertial systems to reinforce the eccentric phase are:
- Reinforcement of connective tissue.
- Increase the muscle break threshold.
- Increased tendon strength
- Rehabilitation and prevention of tendinopathies
- Hamstrings reinforcement in footballers
- Maximum voluntary contraction improvement
- The cone is made of PE (polyethylene) with 7 positions, that is, 7 possible speeds in the change from concentric to eccentric.
- It has 12 pesos of approx. 1 kg Each easily interchangeable.
- Option to adopt rotary encoder.
- It does not include grips or anklets.
