Pneumatic exercise equipment or - machine is a device used for physical exercise. The difference to regular weights or exercise equipment is that the weight stacks, wires and other moving parts are replaced with a pneumatic cylinder whose resistance can be adjusted with air pressure. Modern machines with repetition counters and electrical pressure valves promote precise training of certain muscle groups or a sector of physical functions affecting ones quality of life.[1] Guidelines for health exercise [2] can also be the purpose of training which can be pursued and monitored by loading a training program to a Smart Card and accomplish exercises guided by machines themselves.



Using pneumatic cylinders in exercise machines is a rather new innovation.
First prototypes were born during the 80's and 90's.
