  • Is Thera-Band elastic resistance better than weight machines for rehabilitation exercise?

    April 2, 2012

    The question, “Which is better?” between elastic resistance and weight machines continues in clinics, gyms, and research labs. Thera-Band® elastic resistance is as effective at improving strength as expensive and bulky weight machines (Colado et al. 2008). Researchers in Denmark have shown that physical therapy exercises using isotonic and elastic resistance have similar biomechanical and […]
