MedX is the brain child of legendary fitness visionary Arthur Jones, who founded the Nautilus line of equipment that we already carry in Vertex Fitness. In 1986, he founded MedX as a way to expand on his work testing human strength, endurance and range of motion. In conjunction with the independent research teams at the University of Florida, MedX created their medical Lumbar Extension machine, which has been used by thousands to reduce back pain and increase function.

Over the last 15 years, the Universities of Florida and San Diego, along with various orthopedic clinics around the world, have published some of the most compelling research to date. This research shows that specific spinal strengthening exercises using the MedX Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines help people get better, even after multiple failed attempts at other forms of treatment. With more than 75 published articles in peer-reviewed journals, the proof lies in both the research and the testimonials of thousands of people around the world.
Photobiomodulation (PBM) is an effective, non-invasive, drug-free solution that has no known side effects. It has been used as a means for reducing pain and speeding healing for over 30 years. Professional clinicians trust MedX PBM to stimulate the body’s natural repair processes at the cellular level. There are a number of benefits to using MedX PBM rather than other electro modalities. It is more efficient because there are no messy conduction mediums and time consuming setups, and more than one site can be treated at the same time. Patients are comfortable during treatments, and more likely to complete a series of treatments in order to benefit from the accumulative effects of light. Patients whose health issues can be challenging to treat, such as circulatory problems and nerve impairments, have shown that PBM is an effective way to achieve better outcomes.
MedX offers a short one foot weight stroke, as compared to most equipment which has a weight stroke of two or more feet. This means that the weight stack movement of only one foot on a full-range repetition is safer and smoother than the competition with a longer weight stroke. A long weight stroke can also effect the amount of weight that you are effectively moving when you use the machine.
Racial animus helped fuel the rise of Donald Trump. Since the end of the civil rights movement and under Republican strategist Lee Atwater’s “Southern strategy” that used racism as an unstated cudgel against Democrats, the Republican Party itself has played a welcoming host to racial tensions and fears. Simultaneously, it has depicted itself, as conservative columnist Jeff Jacoby put it in 2012, as “the party of color-blind equality and “a party that doesn’t think with its skin.”

There a number of devices for of exposing your muscles to the demanding work that stimulate the muscles to become stronger: heavy rocks, bar bells, a variety of brands of strength training machines, elastic bands, and there is MedX rehabilitative exercise equipment. Researchers at MedX spent 100 million dollars developing the first piece of MedX exercise equipment, the lumbar machine. Their exercise equipment has numerous patents that other exercise machine manufactures have tried to copy. The difference is MedX does not cut the corners that cheaper imitations often do. The result is equipment that is unmatched in it smoothness and safety. This allows us to eliminate jerking movements that cause injury, and smooth movement means minimal momentum. Minimizing momentum increases the intensity which produces the results you are looking for. This makes MedX uniquely suited for high intensity training (H.I.T.).
Isometric testing may occur every 3 degrees within the patient’s range of motion. During the test, the software plots a strength curve that allows a comparison of the patient’s strength and range of motion to age and gender matched norms. It also has the ability to detect a lack of reasonable effort by the patient. Various reports can be generated for individual patients and selected patients groups or categories for outcome tracking purposes.
MedX Health designs, develops and distributes laser medical devices that have been evaluated and tested for safety and effectiveness and cleared and licensed for use in Canada and United States. The technology has gone through stringent evaluation and testing and it has been cleared for sale by the following regulatory bodies: Health Canada and US-FDA.
In his professional career, Eldon has acquired a significant amount of expertise and experience, through working at several different facilities throughout North Dakota, as well as Idaho. Being a prime example of how life oftentimes comes full-circle, he was an owner with RehabAuthority with Galen and Kevin in 2001 and 2002, and came “back to the fold” in 2011!
And in his most recent blog post — dated Aug. 24 — Jones rails against “Radical Leftists” and blames them for starting racial violence that had roiled Charlottesville about two weeks earlier. Heather Heyer, 32, a protester at a white supremacist rally, died after a driver rammed a car into a crowd of demonstrators. A self-professed neo-Nazi has been charged with first-degree murder in the incident. Jones painted the death as an accident.
Hanson said he was cheered to learn that. “I don’t care about getting their support or that they tell their voters about my campaign as an alternative, because I’m independent and I want voters to be clear on that,” he told Splinter in an email. “They know that all I genuinely want from them is that they reach the voters they can reach to inform them about Jones and to vote for someone else. I hope they do something and follow through on that.”
In what Eldon likes to call his “other life,” he has been a professional musician and singer-songwriter for many years, though he has scaled this back significantly since opening the first Midwest RehabAuthority clinic in 2011. He was a national finalist in the 2007/2008 Colgate Country Showdown, and placed 2nd out of 50,000 contestants across the nation, performing at the world-famous Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. He also works as the Contemporary Music Coordinator at his church. Eldon enjoys exercising and watching/playing sports of all kinds, with a special love for football. He is married to his beautiful soul mate, Amy, with whom he has two children, Isaac and Clara Jean, as well as one step-son, Jacob.
As a three-sport athlete in high school, playing soccer, basketball, and track, then later joining the club lacrosse team during his undergraduate work, Wes was always interested in the human body and how it performs. Physical therapy became a big interest to him as he rehabilitated various injuries as an athlete. He started working as a physical therapy technician where he had the opportunity to absorb and learn as much as he could from the physical therapists he worked with.
Ben started his RehabAuthority career in Boise, Idaho and spent 4 years as Rehab Director of the Eagle Road clinic. He was given a great opportunity to work for the summer closer to family in Grand Forks, North Dakota and has now returned to the Treasure Valley to work once again at the Eagle Road clinic. He enjoys all things competitive or outdoors including sports, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, snowboarding, and CrossFit.
Dr. Ginkel is the Founder and CEO of PDR. He received his chiropractic and acupuncture training from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in 1990. and graduated from Russian State Medical University in 1996. Dr. Ginkel received further training in neck and back rehabilitation at the University of California, San Diego, Department of Orthopedic School of Medicine in 1993; and the University of Florida, Colleges of Medicine and Health and Human Performance in 2001. He is a certified acupuncturist, and has lectured to medical audiences on many topics related to the non-operative management and rehabilitation of spinal disorders. Dr. Ginkel is a member of the Board of Trustees at Northwestern Health Sciences University. He is also a member of the American Back Society.
But in a year when the left is energized in opposition to Trump, particularly by his policies toward minority groups and immigrants, and as the GOP tries to hang on to their majorities in Congress and state houses around the country, state party officials say they do not need racist fringe candidates running for office. None of these candidates is expected to win in the general election this fall, but they are going to give liberals on the hunt for examples of simmering neo-Nazi and neo-Confederate rhetoric at least five places to point.
“I’m not kidding when I say the choices here are just poor choices,” Hanson said. “Literally having a Nazi whose name is on the ballot on one side and an ineffective guy on the other. I don’t want to use Art Jones’ name any more than I have to. I just want to let people know you have a bad choice here. I want to transition this to a race about issues and focusing on what the district needs.” The district, he pointed out, has a sizeable black and Latinx population, as well as at least one Holocaust survivor, Stella Dorna, who was understandably unhappy to learn about Jones’ campaign. “We owe better to these people,” he said.
Returning to Slidell, Louisiana, Arthur borrowed $2,500 from his half sister to fund the fabrication of a resistance exercise machine he was attempting to build in the family's one-car garage. Arthur's 16-year-old son, Gary, designed an off-centered cam as part of the prototype, whose purpuose was to cause the resistance of the exercise to vary in intensity as the user worked the lever arm of the apparatus throughout it's full range of motion.
Ben attended the University of North Dakota (UND) where he received his bachelor’s degree in Pre-Physical Therapy with a Minor in Psychology. He then continued on to The UND’s School of Medicine and Health Science where he received his Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree. Ben’s thirst for knowledge did not stop with his graduation. He has attended numerous continuing education courses and classes and is now certified in McKenzie Diagnosis and Therapy and is a Certified Orthopedic Specialist. Less than 2% of all therapists in the country have these certifications. Ben is excited to help his patients recover from their injuries and return to their daily lives without pain or limitations.
“There is such a danger in too much assumption in politics,” he told Splinter. “Would you not have assumed that either major political party would not knowingly allow a guy like Art Jones to run unopposed on a ballot? If you threw $10,000 and a garbage can in a primary you’d beat him. But the Republican party just didn’t and nearly 21,000 people unknowingly voted for a bad guy. They let those people down.”
The MedX lumbar extension machine provides functional testing and rehabilitation of the lumbar spine. A unique method of stabilizing the pelvis, providing true isolation of the deep muscles of the lumbar spine(erector spinae and multifidus). Weakness in these muscle groups has been associated with chronic low back pain and susceptibility to future back injuries, pain and disability.
Make English the Official Language: America was founded by English speaking people. For most of our history as a nation, if you wanted to be able to advance yourself, as a new legal immigrant, you had to learn how to speak and write in English. Since 1965, with the repeal of the McCarran-Walter Act, (which was an immigration law favoring White, European legal immigrants) the requirement for citizenship to be able to speak and write English was swept aside and now any two-legged vagabond from any Third-world, non-white, or non-Christian country is given preference whether they arrived legally or illegally. Either, learn America’s language, our culture, and respect our laws or get out of our country!
