A German SME has developed an outdoor training device that combines the advantages and ergonomics of a bicycle and a stepper or stairmaster in the gym. It combines upright posture and impact-free step movement and is especially appropriate for people suffering from back and joint pain. The performance of the device is comparable to that of bicycles (speed and uphill).
The SME looks for distribution partners and financial agreements.
More than 20% of the European population suffers from chronic back pain and the drawbacks of biking and running in case of spinal disorders/joint pain are well known.
An Austrian inventor and a well established German mountainbike-manufacturer have jointly developed an outdoor training device with unique ergonomics that has demonstrable advantages for people who suffer from back and joint pain.
The training device is similar to a bicycle but without saddle and with two independent step levers (similar to the stepper or stairmaster in the gym).
The innovative low-maintenance gearbox of the device (which replaces the bottom bracket and the crankset of normal bicycles) is the core of the invention. It allows the independent movement of the two step levers which is essential for the effectiveness of the drive system and the driving comfort on the device
The combination of upright posture and impact-free step movement on the device is unique among outdoor fitness equipment. It makes it the perfect open air training companion – especially in case of back and joint pain.
The German SME founded by the Austrian inventor and the German mountainbike-manufacturer looks for a distribution agreement and offers exclusive sales rights for importers/distributors in order to introduce the products on foreign markets. The importer/distributor represents the trainings device exclusively in his region/country. The partner makes a sales forecast in autumn for the following year, invests in a stock according to the forecast and cares about maintenance/service/repair (in contrast to a sales agency).
Moreover, the SME is interested in a financial agreement. The partner should invest in the development of a high-performance version, a low-price version, as well as an indoor-training device. These training devices will increase the portfolio and sales market.
The German company offers a well proven and sophisticated tool for training as well as for rehabilitation after injury. In view of the health benefits, efficiency and fun factor the device has a high market potential.
- Due to the combination of upright posture and impact-free step movement the outdoor training device is appropriate for prevention and therapy for most spinal disorders and joint pain.
