Desmotec ECCENTRIC training is ideal for the elderly

Eccentric movements are crucial to our day-to-day function, they are controlled movements in which the active muscle is lengthened such as slowing or stopping when walking to cross the road or sitting down into a chair. Eccentric muscle power allows you to move with control and efficiency, improving function and reducing the risk of injury. The Elderly find these Motor Control Units do not activate properly and therefore sitting down in a controlled fashion becomes a problem as does falling down. Using eccentric movements in training helps to enhance muscle activation and maximise strength gains.
