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.

Faith grew up in the country on a small lake in northwest Minnesota where she spent her summers swimming, fishing, and participating in basketball league. During the school year, she spent a lot of time playing sports, such as basketball and pole vaulting in track and field. She won multiple awards such as MVP in both sports. She competed in the Minnesota State track meet in both her junior and senior years, placing 7th her senior year. She was also very involved with band and choir throughout high school, winning an award in choir her senior year, as well.
Jones’s candidacy comes at a time when far-right groups have had new clout in the national discussion: Some hate groups have ramped up recruitment on college campuses and, for a time, some far-right leaders imagined they had an ally in the White House in Stephen K. Bannon, who served as an adviser to President Trump before departing his post in August.
The low back muscles are usually under-developed after a back injury. Even people with no back pain can have a weak back, since those muscles aren't used during normal activity or exercise. The MedX isolates, evaluates, and strengthens the lumbar extensors like no other equipment or exercise can. Using MedX as little as once a week, many people double their lower back strength in just 10 weeks. With JMP and MedX you can say goodbye to back pain for good! Call us today for a free consultation to see if MedX is for you!
A study by Dr. Brian Nelson from Minneapolis, MN, reflects how these results can be achieved. 935 patients were involved in the study. A majority of these patients suffered from chronic back pain (pain over a period of more than six months) and were previously unsuccessful with traditional therapy. After 18 sessions the success rate of MedX therapy strengthened 85% of patients’ previously weak lumbar muscles, with average strength gains of 63.91%.
Patients are individually cared for by specifically trained therapists that are all specialized in spine stability. They are in constant contact with acknowledged rehabilitation institutions – mainly in the US. Most recent results from scientific research are readily integrated into daily practice and continuing education of all staff members is guaranteed by their regular participation at conferences and workshops.
OMG! A representative from Medx called me back and misrepresented herself saying, "I am with Los Alamitos Colorectal Surgerical".  I immediately corrected her and told her she was misrepresenting herself as she is with Medx.  She tried to correct herself and I told her again she was misrepresenting herself.  I told her I wrote a Yelp review and they can read about it here.
MedX has between 0 and 5% friction in it while traditional equipment has up to 30%. What that means to you is, if you had 100 pounds on a machine with 2% friction, you would be pushing 102 pounds during the positive phase of the movement and resisting 98 pounds during the negative phase. This is a four pound difference between the positive and negative phases. On traditional equipment, with 30% friction, that 100 pounds turns into you having to push 130 pounds during the positive phase and resisting 70 pounds during the negative phase. That’s a difference of 60 pounds! With that kind of difference, your muscles have ample opportunity to recover during the negative phase, which means that you will be unable to effectively fatigue the muscles and subsequently will not get the most benefit from your workout. The amount of friction plays a vital role in the process of improving your strength and changing the shape of your body.
Arthur Jones is the legendary founder and developer of Nautilus exercise equipment. He pioneered the concept of high intensity, joint specific strength training and was the first to develop machines dedicated to each area of the body. He proved, through exhaustive research, that it is the most effective way to get results in the shortest period of time. When he evaluated the back extension machine, he found it did not do an adequate job of strengthening the back muscles. In 1972 he began what was to be fourteen years of research and development with the goal of designing the first meaningful tools for testing spinal function, including strength, muscular endurance, and ranges of motion. In 1986, he founded the MedX Corporation and after years of development and testing, validated by independent research teams at the University of Florida, perfected the medical lumbar extension machine. He subsequently developed the cervical extension machine providing the medical community with the first tools capable of producing specific and accurate tests of functional ability, as well as the finest source of rehabilitative exercise. These machines have helped hundreds of thousands of people around the world eliminate their back and neck pain. Arthur Jones devoted his life to educating people about the proper way to exercise and designing equipment best suited to his training methods.
The MedX line also includes the Cervical Extension, Rotary Neck and Rotary Torso, and Knee/Hamstring machines, which are used to produce specific and accurate tests of functional ability and as a tool in rehabilitative exercise. In addition to the medical exercise equipment that we are adding to the studio, MedX also offers a line of exercise machines which we have utilized since we opened in 2001, which incorporate their patented compound weight stack which produces less friction and enables several hundred levels of available resistance in increments of 2ft-lbs.

Still, Jones is an odious character who should have been challenged. He was a spokesman for the neo-Nazis who tried to march in Skokie in 1978, the Tribune once reported. His website lays out his hateful ideas. The Holocaust is a lie, he says. “I don’t believe in equality — period,” he replied when a Tribune reporter asked whether African-Americans and Latinos should have the right to vote.

Nobody else ran as a Republican in the primary because politics is a results-oriented business and the chance of a Republican winning are slim. The boundaries were drawn by Democrats to elect a Democrat. Rep. Dan Lipinski, the incumbent, will face Marie Newman in the Democratic primary, and one of those two will win on Nov. 6. There are other Democratic strongholds in the Chicago area featuring a lone Republican. It can be a Maytag repairman-like assignment.

Price – PENDING – This line is being sold as a set only. Condition is Good to Fair. PLEASE NOTE:  Some machines have scratches on the frames and possibly missing some shields. These are 100% operational and functional – cosmetically they are in fair condition. This line would be perfect for someone who is looking for a core set and can live with some scratches (some touch up paint would help).  Price is “negotiable” and open to offers.  We have not seen a full line come onto the market in a while so we expect this line to sale quickly.

MedX is a tool that isolates movement and provides a safe and effective environment in which to apply basic principles of progression and overload to combat and reverse the deconditioning effects of chronic low back pain. Providing a secure isolated environment reduces patients anxiety and apprehension during the movement and musculature re-activation phase of a rehabilitation program. This type of environment helps the patient develop and re-establish confidence in using their low back musculature. The human body adapts to disuse. If an area of the body is painful the neuromuscular system will learn new patterns of contraction to produce movement, thus alienating the injured muscle. This injured muscle then further atrophies and weakens, predisposing an individual to greater risk and severity or re-injury. Effective rehabilitation must prevent alienation, or re-educate the neuromuscular system properly.
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.
Rehabilitation providers worldwide have experienced outstanding outcomes using the MedX Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines. This is attributed to medical evidence that shows that the majority of patients with chronic spinal pain are significantly "deconditioned". Weakness of the musculature of the spine can lead to many conditions such as herniated discs, facet syndrome, and degenerative joint disease. A strong spine provides a strong foundation that allows for healthy spaces between the vertebrae, which helps prevent spinal compression.

Dr. Brian Nelson from Roseville-Clinic in Minneapolis, USA could show that this strengthening therapy may even help to prevent surgical intervention. In a clinical trial with 421 patients that were already scheduled for surgery, the intervention could be avoided in 91,5% of the study participants after an intensive MedX strengthening program. Only 8,5% of the patients underwent surgery within 30 months after start of the study. 
Over and over, independent research published in peer-reviewed health and fitness journals prove that MedX technology makes meaningful differences in the lives of people who suffer from spine-related pain issues. Even one Lumbar Extension training session every week is enough to produce measurable gains in strength and reductions in low back pain, according to an article published in the journal, Ergonomics.
In 2017, Jones declared his intent to run for the Republican nomination for Congress from Illinois's 3rd congressional district in 2018; he was the only declared candidate of that party. His candidacy was repudiated by the Illinois Republican Party[4][3] and the Republican National Committee. RNC spokesperson Michael Ahrens stated, "We condemn this candidate and his hateful rhetoric in the strongest possible terms".[11] Jones won the primary unopposed on March 20, 2018 and moved on to face Democratic incumbent Dan Lipinski in the general election. Following his primary victory, Republican party officials encouraged members not to vote for Jones.[12]
