Rehab takes on a new dimension with the STOTT PILATES® V2 Max Plus™

TORONTO, December 5, 2007 – The STOTT PILATES® V2 Max Plus™ Reformer is revolutionizing rehabilitation programming within the fitness industry.

This latest piece of equipment to emerge from STOTT PILATES has been designed to help clients work against very gentle tension and build up incrementally as strength increases.

“The feedback from those in the industry who engage in rehab has been gratifying,” says Lindsay G. Merrithew, President and CEO, STOTT PILATES. “The V2 Max Plus Rehab Reformer takes the monotony out of rehab and keeps clients challenged and motivated over the course of their sessions.”

“Not only are clients seeing the therapeutic benefits to working out on the V2 Max Plus Rehab Reformer, but it also helps transition them into more advanced conditioning as they improve both physically and mentally.”

The V2 Max Plus offers restriction-free movement and limitless programming possibilities. For a superior workout, this piece of equipment allows the body to emulate the free, multi-dimensional movement of daily life. Its innovative vertical frame pulley system accommodates three-dimensional range of motion, maintaining workout flow and providing even, constant resistance without jarring.

The V2 Max Plus multi-tasks as a Mat, Reformer and Cadillac, delivering up to 500 exercises to expand group and private programming options. This all-in-one unit allows older clients and rehab patients to work on balance while kneeling, lunging and standing – and is higher off the ground for easier mounts and dismounts.

“The machine’s direction of resistance is variable, unlike a traditional Reformer, providing additional support as needed through the full-range of hip, shoulder and spinal movement,” says Mr. Merrithew, who also invented the V2 Max Plus Reformer. “It’s perfect for facilities looking to implement multi-faceted Pilates programming in a limited space.”
