Most gym equipment offers straight, flat bars only. Our body, however, is not made to move weights out of rigid angles – at least according to numerous studies and the best coaches on this planet.
From a biomechanical perspective, our arms should rather be moving freely during a movement in order to alleviate pressure from wrists, elbows and shoulders. Especially at pull movements the problem becomes clear: Lat pull-downs, pull-ups, deadlifts and barbell/machine rows oftentimes provide limited grip options – unlike in cases of chest or shoulder exercises.
Let’s say a dumbbell press: There you intuitively chose a range of motion that feels most comfortable on your joints and that squeezes your target muscle most effectively.
“So why not use such a natural range of motion at all exercises?!” our Italian startup thought back in 2017. Until today, we have solved this problem for 40 thousand clients by offering a handle that adapts to them and not the opposite.
