XCO-Trainer is a Dutch innovation and a collaboration between physio and manual therapist Jan Hermans and the Orange Pearl Innovation Group. Due to its uniqueness, our innovation is registered in international patents and is scientifically supported by universities and research institutes. The XCO training programs are a worldwide success in gyms, home-fitness and physiotherapy and is used among top athletes.
The XCO is made of a lightweight tube filled with granules. When moving the XCO-Trainer back and forth the speed and the range of the motion should be such that at the beginning and end of each movement the impact of the free moving mass against the end-caps can be clearly felt. This impact, that occurs at the start and the end of each movement is very different from the normal energy that occurs with a dead weight. Your muscles and connective tissue need to work harder to absorb the energy of the impact made in the tube. We call this Reactive Impact.
The XCO-Trainer is a well researched and effective training tool. The unique training effect of the XCO-Trainer is referred to as Reactive Impact. These movements reduce the susceptibility to injury, increase performance and optimize natural recovery. The effectiveness of XCO has been researched and substantiated by various international universities and institutes.
Study by The Hague University of Professional Education (2005) and Hogeschool Leiden (2010) show that using the XCO-Trainer:
A study by the Institute of Medical Physics Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (Simon von Stengel, 2007) into the influence of XCO-Trainers, when added to walking and running exercises, shows that adding XCO ensures:
