Senior-specific workout machines to help increase movement and flexibility.

There’s nothing like the feeling of being wrapped up in your mother’s arms. No matter how old you are, those arms work night and day to celebrate your happy moments and comfort your sad times; providing strength, encouragement, and comfort when needed.

Your mom’s arms are important, as is her heart. She has an easy and comfortable way to take good care of both of them using our ShapeMaster® exercise equipment. Each machine is specially designed using power-assistance, providing gentle movement of the main muscle groups. The equipment can be used passively or actively, with as much or as little effort as she sees fit.

Input from our residents is sought frequently as we introduce new services and programs. Senior Star residents were chosen to participate in a study conducted by Oklahoma State University to test six power-assisted ShapeMaster machines.  The residents participated in 12 weeks of supervised training using the machines, which are designed to provide a full body workout that can potentially reduce the possibility of injury to the muscles, joints, and ligaments with low impact resistance training.

The study results showed tremendous benefits:

  • A significant improvement in muscle strength of between 24% and 50%.
  • Mobility and agility increased by 22%.
  • Balance improved by 33%.

In general, the benefits of exercise are many, from maintaining independence, reducing the risk of falls and fracturing bones, to reducing the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, and diabetes. Even mental health is affected — exercise reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression and fosters improvements in mood and feelings of well-being.

Plus, using our ShapeMaster equipment, your mom or dad just might hug you a little tighter.
