The elastic method uses resistance bands or springs as external resistance.
The elongation of an elastic element depends on the strength applied to it by the subject and the nature of the elastic material (elastic constant).
The advantage of the traditional elastic method is constituted by the gradual increase in the muscular effort while varying the workload is laborious.
Instead, the innovative Kineo system uses a motor and an electronic management system to generate a load that acts exactly like traditional weight but in total control of movement parameters.
The Kineo Innovation in the Elastic Method
Variation of the Constant of Elasticity
(Initial and Final Load)
Unlike traditional elastic methods, where the load may be changed ONLY by replacing the elastic elements or by varying them in parallel, the elastic KINEO method allows to determine the value of the initial and final load.
Variable Load differentiated in Concentric and Eccentric Phase
Another strong point of the Kineo elastic method is its ability to :
a) Use differentiated loads between the concentric and eccentric phase to generate specific muscle adaptations: e.g. concentric 20kg – 60Kg; eccentric 30kg – 10kg.
b ) Use different methods in the concentric and eccentric phase.
