“I created Viscus for those who suffer from arthritis, blood clots, joint replacement, poor circulation, stroke, brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, prolonged bed rest, osteoporosis and spasticity. I saw a need in the physiotherapy world, so I used my love of inventing and filled that need.”

What is Viscus?

Viscous is a therapeutic exercise device professionally designed for people who require consistent joint movement at home, where they can regularly take advantage of its benefits in comfort.

Viscus is also widely used in hospitals, nursing homes, and rehabilitation centers.

Viscous utilizes the kinetic energy of a rapidly turning flywheel to maintain gentle circular leg motion, requiring minimal effort for maximum results. It is ideal for individuals who are limited by injury or illness or are unable to walk unaided.
