The FitGlide by Bob and Brad is an easy-to-use tool for exercise and rehabilitation of the lower extremities. Created by physical therapists Bob Schrupp, PT, MA, and Brad Heineck, PT, CSCS, the FitGlide was designed for patients recovering from knee replacement or surgeries (ACL, PCL), hip replacement or fracture, or stroke, and those who want to exercise without the risk of falling. Weighing less than 5 pounds, this portable tool can be used anywhere for seated, low-impact exercises including seated incline hamstrings, seated knee flexion, seated incline quadriceps, seated incline quadriceps with weight, and seated incline hamstrings with weight. Benefits from using this product include increased range of motion, improved joint and muscle strength, promotion of synovial fluid for reduced friction in joints, increased blood flow, and cardiac benefits. An instructional brochure with exercises is included.
