Medical Total Body Recumbent Stepper with Removable Seat for Wheelchair Access -- Spirit Fitness (MS350)
Spirit Medical Systems Recumbent Stepper with Wheelchair Access - The MS350 Medical Recumbent Stepper by Spirit Fitness is a semi-recumbent step machine with a removable seat allowing use by wheelchair patients in medical and specialized care applications for muscular and cardiopulmonary rehabilitation and physical therapy. Patients can experience full body exercise through coordinated, linear, and natural 1:1 leg and arm motion. Self-adjustable stroke length accommodates patients' specific range of motion capabilities, providing low impact movement for knees, ankles, and hips in a safe semi-recumbent position. Versatile for different training emphasis, the MS350's unique quadrilateral exercise pattern allows users to selectively distribute different extent of exercise efforts across their four limbs. Limbs that input more force can efficiently lead less involved limbs to functional movements and maintain elevated heart rate. A low inertia starting at 5 watts translates to smoothness; the work rate can increase up to 750 watts, accompanied by different step speeds of the users choice.
The MS350 Medical Stepper offers a unique advantage over the standard model MS300 in that the adjustable seat can be removed for wheelchair access. Once the seat is removed, a wheelchair can be rolled from the rear over the base frame platform, coming to a stop towards the front half of the machine to allow access to handles and pedals. Front wheels of the wheelchair are then secured on both sides by fastening straps attached to the lower frame to ensure safety and avoid any movement during exercise. This allows wheelchair-bound patients easy access to the cardio machine without need for physical transfer from a wheelchair to a fixed seat. The MS350 allows patient warm-up before a physical therapy session as well as cardiovascular exercise. Therapists can have the patient pedal to improve range of motion after surgery in the knees, hips, ankles, shoulders, or wrists. If a patient does not have use of the legs, the arms can be used alone without having to engage the stepping motion with the feet to still provide upper body strengthening and cardiopulmonary workload. Because the MS350 can be used with either a seat or with a wheelchair, it is also a great choice of cardio exercise equipment outside of medical applications for users with limited mobility or active aging exercisers, especially in assisted living facilities for seniors.

Advantages and Clinical Applications
- Combined upper and lower body movements: Provides full body workout, building strength and range-of-motion and utilizing wellness programs to increase longevity
- Dependently linked, linear motion pedals: Enables users to self-adjust the stroke length to accommodate their range-of-motion capabilities
- Closed kinetic chain: Provides low impact movement with minimal stress on knees, ankles, hips and low back in a safe and comfortable semi-recumbent position
- Quadrilateral exercise pattern: Allows users to distribute the exercise efforts across four limbs. By reducing the effort from the involved limb and transferring a greater effort to the uninvolved limbs, they will maintain an elevated heart rate to achieve exercise potential.
- Applications include: Orthopedic, Sports Medicine, Neurological, and Cardiac Rehabilitation as well as Senior Rehab and Wellness Training
