NEW Ankle Joint Control
Adjustable Plantar and Dorsiflexion
Designed specifically to improve ankle strength, walking ability, and increase blood flow to the heart via the calf artery.
The AJC allows for combined plantar and dorsiflexion exercise, simulating the movement of walking and exercising a greater number of muscle groups than any other machine. This not only strengthens the ankle but also improves the flow of blood through the dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial arteries, increasing the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the foot.
Leg muscles provide an important pump action designed to recirculate blood to the heart; this is commonly referred to as the calf muscle pump or second heart. The knee then pumps blood into the upper leg where the thigh muscle pushes it further toward the groin and into the lungs and heart.
