Exercisers, Flexibility, Upper Limb/Trunk
Definition : Flexibility exercisers designed to improve the range of motion (i.e., flexibility) around a joint by supporting and/or positioning the user, making it possible to stretch the muscles in the upper limbs and/or trunk. These exercisers are usually portable devices with handlebars or stand-alone exercise workstations. Upper-limb/trunk flexibility exercisers are intended to improve the flexibility of the muscles in the upper limbs and/or the trunk; they can increase muscle strength and improve balance and stability. Dedicated flexibility exercisers are available for stretching the upper limbs (e.g., stretching units) and the trunk (e.g., inversion table).
