Preventing Heart Disease One Step at a Time

SEATTLE, Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- (Seattle, WA) Heart disease is the second most common physical condition amongst adults around the world. According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute: "to reduce the risk of [heart] disease, you only need to do about 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity."


However, for a significant portion of the active aging community 30 minutes daily of medium to high impact exercises are too intense and can be harmful to the individual. "The reduced impact of recumbent linear cross trainers are the solution to active aging", says Glenn Safadago, President of HealthCare International a small family business located on Whidbey Island, WA. Healthcare International recognizes the rising need for more affordable exercise rehabilitation equipment while maintaining a high standard of quality.

Team HCI (HealthCare International) might just have the solution for the active aging community's goal of achieving 30 minutes of moderate physical activity per day. While other machines and outdoor activities may cause a high level of impact on joints and muscles, HealthCare International's newest addition to their active aging line, the LifeStep has a smooth and easy feeling while exercising.

The LifeStep is a low impact recumbent linear cross trainer that aims to reduce the strain on the individual during their workout allowing them to extend their workout time and reduce their risk of heart disease by increasing and improving circulation. The LifeStep is ideal for individuals transitioning from rehabilitation to homecare or those who are looking for a high value recumbent cross trainer. 

As the active aging community as well as HealthCare International move into a new era of health and wellness, you can look forward to more products that are geared towards improving the health of our Nation, not emptying our pockets. 

HealthCare International's new low impact recumbent linear stepper, the LifeStep, retails for $3,199.
