Most traditional fitness equipment can pose significant challenges to some older adults. This transformative inclusive functional trainer removes physical and cognitive barriers found in traditional equipment, providing an equal platform of fitness for all ages and abilities.
The Christian Villages is a local non-profit retirement community. They are an early adopter of many new technologies and also have embraced HiLois with open arms. Here’s an excerpt of their article on the new Include Platform a digital fitness platform for all ages.
Local non-profit retirement community, The Christian Village at Mason (CVM) is the first senior living organization in the world to offer The Include Platform, an internationally recognized digital health & wellness platform that pairs inclusive fitness equipment with integrated cloud software to improve outcomes while lowering barriers and costs. The Access Strength™ is IncludeHealth’s transformative inclusive functional trainer that removes physical and cognitive barriers found in traditional equipment, providing an equal platform of fitness for all ages and abilities.
“When I heard of The Access Strength, I immediately thought of our residents and how it would give those with physical impairment the ability to exercise and stay fit,” said Lisa Cecil, Vice President of Health Services for Christian Village Communities. “At The Christian Village at Mason, we want to be on the forefront of cutting edge technologies that enhance health & wellness.”
How The Include Platform began
Described as fitness infused with inclusivity and technology, this revolutionary platform helps make staying healthy and fit easier for people of ALL abilities. Ryan Eder, the CEO of IncludeHealth and creator of The Access Strength, was initially inspired by an observation at his gym one day.
