Exercisers, Aerobic, Elliptical Motion

Definition : Aerobic exercisers designed to simulate elliptical (in an oval plane) motions, a combination of stair-stepping, running, cross-country skiing, and walking. These exercisers typically consist of a pair of moving handlebars, a chain/belt drive, and two footpedals or platforms on which a user can stride in a forward or reverse direction. Some exercisers can adjust the stride length; resistance is provided by a mechanical or magnetic belt. Most exercisers are nonpowered, but some may include a motor to regulate speed. The exercisers usually include workout program modes that can adjust resistance and a monitor to display the workout time, distance, speed, calories burned, and heart rate; they often have handlebars with heart-rate sensors, and some may also have heart-rate controls to adjust resistance level to suit the targeted heart rate. Elliptical motion aerobic exercisers are intended to increase cardiovascular endurance by keeping the heart and pulmonary rate elevated for a continuous period of time. Additionally, they provide strength and endurance to the muscles of the lower body (i.e., quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteus, hip flexors, calves) and the upper body (i.e., arms, shoulder, chest, back).
