How the ROM Works and how the NanoVi™ improves exercise sessions
ROM (Range of Motion) exercise machine is a very short, high intensity, workout. It challenges muscles in both directions (push and pull). The ROM matches the amount of strength and effort a person puts into it by using a flywheel. A centrifugal brake puts more resistance on the flywheel so exercise becomes harder, the faster the flywheel turns. As a result, the machine adjusts to greater strength and endurance and always challenges the body.
The manufacturers say it is possible to get a full workout on the ROM machine in 4 minutes a day, just a fraction of the time most people spend exercising. Sensor technology built into the ROM assigns a score to each exercise session. This makes it easy to measure progress and also to see the impact of the NanoVi™ device. Athletes report hitting their personal best ROM records when they incorporate the NanoVi™ device in their ROM exercise routine. The combination is so good because high intensity workouts create a huge demand for recovery. The NanoVi™ helps with this recovery by triggering repair mechanisms at the cellular level. It is not necessary to use the NanoVi™ at the same time as the ROM, although this can be done. Below, Janice describes her experience.

Recovery from ROM machine exercise
I have a ROM exercise machine, which is designed to give you an intense workout in 4 minutes. It has an upper body and a lower body workout. The ROM manufacturer recommends that you alternate these workouts, doing the upper body one day and the lower the next.
Even though the ROM workout only lasts 4 minutes it is really intense. At around the 2-minute mark it starts to get really hard. At the end of 4 minutes I am usually very winded and my heart is pounding. Once you are done, the machine assigns you a score. The goal is to reach a score of 115 three times in a row before you move on to the next level of intensity.
I have over the years had periods when I manage to fit in the workout every day, but that has not been the case recently. The other day
