4-way Neck Machine:
Our 4-way neck machines are available specifically for rehabilitation clinics . Being the most popular unit of the two neck machines in our line, it was designed for neck rehabilitation - not fitness or bodybuilding - which requires more resistance capability.
Note: Before ordering, please be aware that we have two different neck machines in our line which compliment each other.
(Please see our Cervical Rotation neck machine for more information.)
There are other exercise machines in our line that can be used in both a fitness and a rehab setting. However our neck machines do not make this crossover due to the delicate nature of the cervical spine that has been weakened from injury and/or surgery.
That's why we equipped our neck machines with starting resistance as low as 1 lb., as compared to the minimum of 10 - 15 lbs. of other neck machines on the market today which were designed for fitness, but found their way into chiropractic and physical therapy clinics where the more acute patients aren't able to fully utilize the machine until a minimal strength threshold is achieved.
Over the past 16 years, we've installed many neck machines in rehab centers alongside other "fitness and rehab" 4-way neck machines that were not up to task. This left the more delicate cervical spine patients behind until they progressed enough to meet the minimal resistance of the fitness machine.
Such patients were relegated to using low tech methods for neck exercise such as rubber bands which carry with it the unnecessary unloading characteristics that make these types of modalities less effective than the use of neck machines which allow the user to concentrate all efforts on displacing the exercise movement.
Your neck rehabilitation patients will benefit from our minimal 1 lb. and 2 lb. weight stack plate incrimination, providing a safer and more graduated progression of neck strengthening and increase in ROM (range of motion).
While Incremental jumps of 5 lbs. or 10 lbs. may be fine for healthy fitness machine users, it is simply too aggressive for rehabilitative sports medical protocol. Our minimal resistance features alone is what sets our 4-way neck machines apart from the others. However, there are several additional features that make our machine uniquely qualified for sports medical use:
easily adjusts start and stop ranges of exercise motion. A soft stop safely
decelerates the user at the end range of motion.
Adjustable counterweight keeps the R.O.M. assembly counterbalanced so users may benefit from sensitive low-end resistance of as little as 1 lb. (Yet another industry first that was improvised by us that you won't find on other neck machines.)
QuadLoc ™ seat mechanism
allows the seat, along with stabilization pads and hand grips,
to rotate 360 degrees and lock into 4 different positions
(90 degrees apart) to perform each exercise.
support pad attaches to back seat
with Velcro flaps and can be adjusted to comfort the user or removed if
Selectorized 40 lb Weight
Stack features 25 levels of isotonic resistance,
with a minimum starting resistance of 1 lb.
machine frames are built from 2" x 4" rectangular tubing in
the base, and 3" x 3" square tubing in upright members. Frame tubing
has a 3/16" (.188") wall thickness which is 50% more than the industry
standard 11 gauge (.120") as specified by other exercise machine
