Exercisers, Muscle Strength, Lever/Pulley-Cable, Lower Limb, Hip Abduction/Adduction

Definition : Lower-limb muscle strength exercisers based on a system of levers that are designed to provide resistance to muscular contraction when the user performs hip abduction or adduction. The user exerts force on levers to counteract the exerciser resistance. These exercisers are usually stand-alone machines consisting of weights stacked on top of each other, a system to transmit the force (i.e., to convey the resistance), and a seat with two padded levers attached, one on each side, and foot rests at the bottom. Typically, the user sits in the seat with the sides of their knees and legs resting on the padded levers and their feet on the foot rests. For hip abduction exercise the user puts one thigh inside each padded lever and pushes outwards against the resistance. For adduction exercises, the user puts one thigh outside each padded lever and pushes inwards. These exercisers are intended to improve muscle strength in the hips, increase muscle size, enhance muscle endurance and power, and improve bone density.
