Exercisers, Muscle Strength, Lever/Pulley-Cable, Upper Limb/Trunk, Abdominal Trunk
Definition : Muscle strength exercisers designed to provide resistance to muscular contraction in the abdomen using a mechanism based on a system of pulleys and cables or levers. These exercisers usually consist of a stand-alone machine with weights stacked on top of each other or a hydraulic mechanism, a system to transmit the force (i.e., to convey the resistance), and lever bars or pulley cables on which the user exerts force to counteract the exerciser resistance. Users grasp the lever bar or cable handles and flex their waist. Abdominal crunch strength exercisers are intended to improve muscle strength in the abdomen, increase muscle size, enhance muscle endurance and power, and improve bone density.
