MedX Spineconcept. Focusing on the essentials.

Isolated. Efficient. measurable.

Only MedX weight machine provide an isolated, efficient training of the target muscles which is in addition easy to handle. With the medical product series a computer assisted, isolated measurement and therapy for the lumbar and cervical extensors is possible for the first time. Strengthen your customers back.

Precise. Almost frictionless.

All machines have a force curve which is adjusted to the power movement of each muscle over the entire range of motion. In combination with the extremely low friction due to the absence of weight guide rods the exact training resistance for each patient or customer can easily be adjusted.

Fast. Sustainable.

The resistance of one training session to the next can progressively be increased. This guarantees quick and measurable progress due to an isolated training over the entire range of motion - and thus long-term motivated and satisfied customers.


MedX. Top of the class.

MedX stands for Medical eXercise. With MedX a computer based, both isolated measurement and therapy of lumbar and cervical extensors is possible for the first time. The muscles are precisely trained without stressing the joints and spinal discs. Recent studies confirm the link between chronic back pain and weak muscles - and thus the MedX concept.

MedX - Medical eXercise

Arthur Jones, der Erfinder der Nautilus-Trainingsgeräte und des Nautilus-Trainings-Prinzips, hat MedX zusammen mit Orthopäden und Sportmedizinern von der Universität Florida, Gainesville,entwickelt. Forschungsbeginn war das Jahr 1972. 1987 wurden die Geräte erstmals öffentlich vorgestellt auf einem Orthopäden-Kongress in New York. 1990 wurden die Geräte in Europa eingeführt. In den letzten Jahren hat sich die MedX -Therapie weltweit sehr rasch ausgebreitet und etabliert.

Um sich mit dem ständigen Vergleich der international erzielten Resultate auseinanderzusetzen, erfolgt eine wissenschaftliche Aufarbeitung der Therapieergebnisse der eigenen Patienten. Dr. Brian Nelson von der Rosevill Clinic in Minneapolis, USA hat in einer Studie mit 895 Patienten, die für eine Operation vorgesehen waren, mit einem sehr intensiven Kräftigungsprogramm nach MedX, 91.5 Prozent aller Operationen vermieden.

In Europa hat die GMKT (Gesellschaft für Medizinische Kräftigungstherapie) unter der drei-jährigen Präsidentschaft von Dr. Peter Neef eine multizentrische Studie an 565 Patienten durchgeführt. Die Studienergebnisse von Nelson und der GMKT unterscheiden sich nur unwesentlich. Nach einer MedX -Therapie liegen die durchschnittlich gemessenen Kraftzuwächse bei 61 Prozent und lassen auf eine gewaltige Schwäche im Bereich der Lendenwirbelsäule schließen.

Ziel der MedX-Therapie

Ziel der MedX-Trainingstherapie ist die Stabilisierung und Kräftigung der gesamten Wirbelsäulenmuskulatur durch gezielte Bewegungen an Präzisionsgeräten. Durch kugelgelagerte Achsen, feindosierte Gewichtsabstufungen und verstellbare Polster werden die einzelnen Muskeln optimal-isoliert trainiert und Gelenke und Bandscheiben geschont.

Effizientes Training

MedX-Geräte ermöglichen eine isolierte Kräftigung aller wirbelsäulenrelevanten Muskelgruppen durch Extension, Flexion und Rotation über den vollen Bewegungsumfang. Zusätzlich wird die Beweglichkeit der Beine, des Hüftgelenkes sowie der Schulter gezielt trainiert und verbessert. Das Training ist effizient, leicht durchführbar und erfordert einen geringen Zeitaufwand bei 1 bis 2 Trainingseinheiten pro Woche. Alle Bewegungen werden gleichmäßig und daher gelenkschonend ausgeführt. Die Bedienung ist einfach, sicher und komfortabel.

Qualität überzeugt

Gerade im zunehmenden Wettbewerb ist es wichtig, seine Einrichtung durch Qualität abzugrenzen. Dies gilt für Trainingsbetreuung und Dienstleistung ebenso wie für den Gerätepark. MedX-Geräte werden in Sport- und Rehabilitadtionszentren, Krankenhäusern, Altenheimen oder in der Sportmedizin eingesetzt. Fitnessstudios bietet MedX die Chance den Kundenstamm zu erweitern: Ergänzen Sie Ihr Angebot mit Geräten zur Rehabilitation von Gelenk- und Rückenbeschwerden.

M-Line

the medical product line

The computer assisted M-Line spineconcept therapy equipment is characterized by an unique therapy system and allow an isolated training of the lumbar and cervical spine muscles.

T-Line

the training product line

The spineconcept T-Line is the back training circuit for your gym or rehabilitation center. Due to the patented MedX USA fixation all synergistically working accessory muscles are excluded from the muscle function chain, so a specific training stimulus can be set to the appropriate muscle. The MedX spineconcept is sui- table for all facilities with a focus on prevention and health sport, but also for operators of high quality gyms.


M-Line LE: Lumbar Extension

  • The spineconcept MedX M-Line LE Lumbar Extension allows an isolated testing and therapeutic training of the lumbar extensors over the entire lumbar spine range of motion (0°-72° of hip flexion) without unnecessarily stressing the joints and discs.
  • With the help of the patented fixation and pelvic stabilisation all synergistically working accessory muscles as gluteal- and leg muscles are turned off from the muscle function chain.
  • A counterweight negotiates for the patients individual upper body weight. Because it is subject to gravity and thus influences the measurement results the upper body weight has to be offset during the entire range of motion.
  • The soft-tissue tension (elasticity of ligaments, musculature and the counterpressure of the soft-tissue of the abdomen) is measured at each position to ensure that the net muscle force is measured actually.
  • The measurement results of individual positions are compared to age-, sex- and weight-specific reference data. They are reproducible at any time.
  • With the help of power measurement, the individual training load of the patient is determined.
  • During the training the resistance is adapted variably to the spinal musculature corresponding to the force curve by a torque disc (cam). There is more resistance in flexion and less resistance in extension.
  • The fine adjustment of the weight block provides a gradation in one-pound increments, allowing an optimal weight range between 10 and 400 pounds at any time.
  • The weight guide works with very low friction due to the absence of weight guide rods.

M-Line CE: Cervical Extension

  • The spinconcept MedX M-Line CE Cervical Extension allows an isolated measurement and strengthe- ning of the cervical spine.
  • The isolated strengthening of the cervical spine muscles is achieved by a patented fixation of the upper body (chest pad and harness system).
  • The weight of the head is also balanced by a counterweight.
  • The isolated and isometric force measurement is possible over the entire cervical spine range of motion (0°-126°) and therefore forms the basis for individual training plans.
  • During the entire range of motion the used trainings weight is moved only by a distance of about 5cm due to the special eccentric technology (MedX cam). This mechanism reduces the friction to a minimum and leads an effective reduction of acceleration forces.

T-Line XTL: Lumbar

  • The spineconcept T-Line XTL Core Lumbar machine enables specific training of the lumbar extensors by an effective isolation of the hip musculature.
  • Strong and trained lower back muscles are the essential condition for a stable and health posture of the spine.
  • The MedX eccentric technology provides an even load of the musculature over the entire range of motion.
  • Compared to other training equipment no friction forces occur due to the absence of guide rows.
