Elliptical machine is a stationary exercise equipment to be used for cardio activities including walking, running, and stair-climbing. It’s ideal for people who intend to stay fit despite having injuries as well as those who prefer to remain indoors. Along with the availability of preference settings, it offers flexibility as they may either be self-powered by movements or be plugged in for motion and resistance level adjustments.
Elliptical trainer is not only good for healthy people, it’s also ideal for people who have joint issues or problems with ligaments or tendons because its elliptical motion prevents excessive pressure from being applied to the joints when compared with the normal running or walking. But that doesn’t mean no impact on ankle and knee, so patients under treatment should consult a physician before exercising.
