Desmotec Range of Iso-Inertial Products
The Desmotec Range of Iso-Inertial devices have been designed around the principal of flywheel training and uses alternating concentric/eccentric resistance which improves strength, power, elasticity and neuro-muscular movement control. Flywheel training offers safe and easy eccentric overload working against the inertia of up to four metal flywheels.
The Desmotec system is simple, it is made up of a rotating shaft and a belt. The belt is attached to the athlete’s waist, cords run from the belt to the shaft. The cords are wrapped around the shaft and are used transfer the athlete’s movement into kinetic energy which rotates the shaft.The greater the force applied from the athlete during the concentric movement, the faster the flywheel will accelerate.
In isoinertial training, an athlete’s concentric movement is transformed into kinetic energy. That energy is latterly rebounded and dissipated into the eccentric phase of the movement.
The dissipated energy is directly proportional to the energy generated from the concentric movement. This results in broader motor unit recruitment promoting faster recovery and enhancing muscle conditioning.
The benefits of Isoinertial training include:
- the ability to generate greater forces, compared to traditional training methods (up to 40%-50% increase)
- extensor muscle chain performance enhancements
- lower cardiopulmonary efforts
- a unique neuromuscular activation requiring lower CNS fatigue
- stimulation of specific micro adaptations capable of rebuilding damaged muscle tissue
DESMOTEC D LINE is ideal for the lower body and its movements, working in a closed kinetic chain. The unique flywheel design can generate upto 4000 watts of power making the units suitable for high level athletes.
DESMOTEC V LINE is designed for work with the upper body and open kinetic chain movements. Vertical Machine for muscle strengthening, injury prevention and rehabilitation, allowing you to get closer to the specific movement thanks to the flexibility of the machine and the ability to change the anchor point.
Desmotec Pininfarina Line has been designed with aesthetics and function in mind. The legendary Pininfarina are renowned for designing some of the most legendary Italian cars including: Ferrari, Masserati and Alfa Romeo amongst others. The unique designed has been added to Desmotec’s functionality to create an outstanding range of equipment. The pininfarina range uses a patented intertial control system which means users only have to make a small adjustment on the flywheel rather than adding/taking off flywheels making it very simple to use. The Line has been designed for permanent installation rather than for portability and both units include D Load cells for additional data collection.
Desmotec Accessories. There is a wide range of accessories available for the ranges and have been designed for maximum comfort and functionality. The range includes: integral harness, lumbar harness, waist belt, single short handle, single long handle, bicep/tricep and ankle strap.
