- The Flexxicore Passive Exerciser is an enjoyable way for people to care for their back and look after their general health – in just a few minutes
- It can help improve energy levels and alleviate back pain, stress and tension
- Easily controlled and adjustable to suit any age or fitness level
Designed to be suitable for use by any individual, regardless of age or health condition, the FlexxiCore can be used by the whole family with an enjoyable experience for all.
The FlexxiCore is a Class I Medical Device, registered with the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency as a “Continuous Passive Motion Device for Home Use” – Reg. No. CA014496. It has a Heavy-Duty DC Motor which not only gives it a long, maintenance-free life and a smooth ride, but also means that it can accommodate advanced electronic programming and precise controls – unlike the early models that were developed in Japan which had basic AC motors and a single fixed speed.
The gentle starting speed and precisely adjustable speed controls mean that anyone can take it in the stride and find the speed that resonates for their needs – which may differ from a morning session to the evening when a more relaxing effect is called for.
For a thoroughly invigorating session for the very fittest people, the manual mode goes up to 160 beats per minute [160 RPM], while Auto Mode 2 (“Oxygen Mode”) gives an amazing 15-minute workout with the speed accelerating through the ranges rapidly and then back down at the end of the pre-programmed session.
For many of us, male or female, going up to the highest speed range is not necessary, as even at low to medium speeds the pulsing motion generated in the area of the pelvis stimulates the system deeply. Auto Mode 1 (“Leisure Time Mode”) gives an every-day session with the speed changing gradually up to 130 RPM and then gradually down again.
Auto Mode 3 (“Sleep Mode”) gives an even more relaxing session with the speed changing very gradually over the 15-minute duration. This mode is very suitable at the end of the day – especially for those with sleep problems. It is also ideal for those with sensitivity or chronic health conditions that would find a faster speed too demanding.
The manual mode (80 to 160 RPM adjustable in increments of one) is itself the best option for many, including those who develop their own favourite pattern of use, and those who prefer to stay in the very gentle slow speed zone.
Durability: the heavy duty DC motor has a low-friction engineering design that offers a longer life (performs well under endurance tests based on 3000+ hours constant use under 20kg load), smoother ride, and less noise and greater temperature resistance than the 1st-generation machines that were developed in Japan. This motor also gives the capacity for smooth and precise programming with fully adjustable speed controls.
