Bungees for Physical Rehabilitation
Low Body Impact = High Endurance,
A physical therapist’s ideal setup for Rehabilitation = Fast results, pain free, no added pressure on the joints and it’s fun!
ASTRO-DURANCE® Canada Bungee Workouts help people of all ages who suffer from debilitating disorders like Arthritis, Muscular Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s Disease and those recovering from sports injuries and surgical procedures. Client feedback has all been positive. People have less pain and can-do things they could not do before starting a motion-based bungee exercise program.
One of the biggest challenges in Physical therapy is to help the person exercise without stressing the body further – now there is a way! ASTRO-DURANCE® Bungee “Motion-Based Exercise” helps muscles stretch and contract without pain, and no added pressure on the joints. It gets the lymphatic system moving efficiently and blood pumping throughout the body and flowing to the brain where it can oxygenate brain cells and build chemicals that enhance brain function.
With ASTRO-DURANCE® Bungee workouts your client can perform moves they never could before- do more reps and easily perform horizontal moves that reach muscle groups vertical (weight lifting) training does not reach, giving them optimal therapeutic results!In short, “It allows you to exercise all muscle groups without gravity-based restrictions.”

ASTRO-DURANCE® Bungee Exercise is a cutting-edge concept that has revolutionized the way people look at fitness!
- Counterforces - Bungee assistance exercise (ASTRO-DURANCE®) does not have certain counterforces that allow people to exercise the same as they do in a gravity-based environment. Traction, which depends on body weight, is less, as are forces that result from using body weight for counterbalance. The result is a vast variety of movements with longer duration that would have otherwise been impossible for the client to perform with their physical limitations.
- Buoyancy - When moving on the bungee, the muscular system does not have to compensate for the entire measured weight of body parts. This changes the muscular forces required for coordinated movement and requires the muscular system to re-adapt. The person is able to work out without gravity-based restraints that involve body weight pressure on bones and joints, thus, a persons’ capabilities to exercise are increased. People with bad knees, hips and ankles can perform hops, skips, jumps and run thanks to the bungee. Over time, as with any progressive based exercise, people can increase their performance levels.
- Muscle Development – Although the ASTRO-DURANCE® client is working out with a lighter weight factor, and low impact pressure on the joints, ASTRO-DURANCE® Bungee Training allows for total stretch and increased repetitive muscle action that are the keys to developing muscle strength and endurance.
- Muscle action - ASTRO-DURANCE® Bungee Workouts allow the client to move in directions that gravity based, skeletal lever system does not allow, thus stretching and developing muscle groups that traditional exercise equipment does not allow. The result is extreme core development and movements that require muscle actions throughout the entire body simultaneously, as well as increased cardio and fat burning levels.
- Improved Performance – With bungee assistance each person can achieve improved strength, stamina, flexibility and balance performance. These situations occur when the bungee assists the body movement creating greater maneuverability and allows the person to be able to push off solid surfaces with ease. The muscles are stretched and exercised without the body’s weight putting pressure on joints.
- Overall Conditioning – Resistance based ASTRO-DURANCE® bungee exercise allows for rapidly increased cardio, muscle strengthening, greater endurance, increased stamina, improved flexibility and balance, while maximizing a person’s metabolism allowing the body to burn fat.
- Bungee Motion and Force - The time clients can exert force is governed by the distance they can push before losing physical contact. The force exerted during this time will typically vary depending on the client’s strength and flexibility of motion.
- All clients increase progressively according to their fitness level, just as in other physical training.
- Even physically fit persons can perform more efficiently, with increased repetitions faster than before.
- Depending on the bungee workout, the entire body gets a stretch.
ASTRO-DURANCE® works with the body not against it
Clients with physical limitations are all ages and ASTRO-DURANCE® Bungee motion-based exercise is extremely beneficial to people who need to get their blood and lymphatic systems moving, thereby building strength and improving flexibility, balance and coordination.
ASTRO-DURANCE® Bungee Exercise helps people of all ages who suffer from debilitating disorders like Arthritis, Muscular Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s Disease and more. We have found those suffering from these disorders can exercise pain free and gain the overall health benefits of exercise along with improved body movement. Client feedback of arthritis sufferers has all been positive. People have less pain and can-do things they could not do before starting a motion-based bungee exercise program.
Set Up and Use
ASTRO-DURANCE® Bungee System allows the versatility needed to help users of any weight and strength range and provides safety, balance and support.
The system can be connected to one, two or three ceiling anchors. ASTRO-DURANCE® Canada Bungees easily connect to harness loops on front, sides and back depending on the type of exercise and or physical therapy to be performed. The ASTRO-DURANCE® Canada Bungee Systems are easily modified to adapt to customized sessions for each user by adding and subtracting the desired amount of weighted bungee cord units in any combination to reach the required therapeutic resistance weight for balance and support.
