In the words of Lena Karjaluoto, HUR’s CEO, “Did you know that 46% over 80 years old can’t lift more than 5 kg? Studies show that one of the most important things for staying healthy and independent throughout your life is to have good muscular condition. And we are all entitled to a healthy and independent life, as long as possible.
“Though public diseases like obesity, diabetes, depression, cardiac disease and dementia are huge challenges on both an individual level as well as society as a whole...HUR is dedicated to contributing in what we do best - which is providing the best exercise solutions for preventive, rehabilitative and maintaining everyday strength – so that our customers can keep on performing miracles every day.”
The HUR air resistance exercise equipment is manufactured in Finland. Developed as the result of a research project at the University of Technology, Helsinki in 1989, the company has maintained close ties with the research community ever since.
