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.
In January 2018, he became the only Republican candidate for Illinois's 3rd congressional district, despite that party's repeated disapproval of him gaining this position, as well as the controversy around him being a candidate.[13][14]. Despite the GOP disavowing, 26.5 percent of voters still voted for him in the general election on November 6, 2018, as he lost by 47 points.
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.
MedX treats and reduces chronic back pain and dysfunction through specific spinal strengthening exercises using the MedX™ Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines. Pressure on the spinal column causes pressure on nerve roots, which in turn, causes pain. MedX focuses on increasing strength, decreasing pressure on spine and nerve roots, and ultimately decreasing your pain.
The success of healthcare reform to meet the goals of Triple Aim relies in large part on the capacity for learning and behavior change at both the individual level and the system level. With that in mind, all topics presented at MEDX Regional Conferences are designed within the framework of the NQS priorities outlined by the US Department of Health and Human Services.
I had a major knee surgery in February which required extensive physical therapy for recovery. I chose to work with Patrick and the team at MedX for my physical therapy. I was extremely nervous on my first visit and likely not the easiest patient to work with. Patrick was extremely patient with me, but also firm in his expectations of what I needed to do to aid in my own recovery. That combination helped me tremendously and with each visit there was marked improvement. Kara was also fantastic to work with. She was encouraging and firm when she needed to be. Due to the level of care I received, I didn't just make a full recovery, but found myself in better shape than I was before surgery. Due to the education provided by Patrick and the team, I continued coming to MedX as a member and still do to this day. I have lost 31 pounds and am in the best shape of my life. I am looking forward to taking on even more challenges in the future. I am where I am today thanks to Patrick and the team at MedX!

Unique padded restraint system neutralizes shoulder, arm and chest muscles while isolating waistline muscles. Separate system of padded restraints effectively locks the pelvis and prevents the hip and gluteus muscles from assisting in rotation of the torso. Increases strength and flexibility at the core of the body, making it a favorite among golf pros looking to increase club head speed.


“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.
The patented Core 4-Way Neck is a bio-mechanically precise 4-way neck machine that trains the flexion and extension muscles of the neck to allow for improved range of motion. It both stretches and strengthens the cervical spinal muscles. This allows for decompression of the upper spine and promotes increased omni-directional strength and flexibility of the entire neck. The Core 4-Way Neck is based on the superior bio-technology of the MedX Medical Neck Extension machine now being used in spinal rehabilitation facilities around the world.
The patient-adaptable equipment features seat positioning, range of motion, counterweights, and restraint systems that all adapt to the unique physical requirements of each patient. The equipment provides resistance for rehabilitation exercises in small weight increments allowing individualized levels of resistance for any rehabilitative regimen. The computerized diagnosis provides updated results of training, strength evaluation, and rehabilitation of musculature. Counterweighting the patient’s body enhances testing accuracy by removing the weight of the torso, head, and arms. IMPACT personnel are fully trained to operate and handle all aspects of MEDX testing and rehabilitation.

You work your entire life assisting others in the nursing industry and when it comes times for you to need assistance, the government social security you pay into does NOT help you with your needs. Medicare will not assist you but Med X Change, LLC came to my rescue.

A strong spine provides a stable foundation Spinal Rehabilitation that permits the right amount of space between the vertebrae. Injury, degeneration, weakness and poor posture all contribute to back pain and neck problems. To provide lasting relief from chronic neck and back pain, the structures of the spine must be reconditioned; Med-X physical therapy in Lakewood accomplishes this goal with isolated strengthening exercises.
Jones was born on January 1, 1948 in Beloit, Wisconsin. In 1969 he joined the army and served one year in Vietnam. He then attended the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater, where he majored in journalism and political science. While there, he was a member of Young Republicans, Young Americans for Freedom, Republicans for Wallace, and Republican National Committee.
Ryan was raised in the small town of Burley, ID. Having grown up in a family construction company, his father instilled in him the importance of a hard work ethic. This work ethic was applied not only to school but also sports. He had the privilege of being part of a state basketball champion team but unfortunately, he became sidelined due to a knee injury. From that injury he was introduced to physical therapy and got his first experience as to how beneficial conservative treatment can be. Since then he has furthered his passion for physical health and fitness by staying active in recreational weight lifting and competed in several bodybuilding competitions throughout the northwest. Since then he attended the College of Southern Idaho and Idaho State University where he obtained his undergraduate degree in Physical Education and completed his Doctorate of Physical (DPT) at the University of Jamestown in North Dakota in 2018. While attending the University of Jamestown he had the great opportunity to be a student physical therapist at two Rehab Authority clinics before he graduated. He is an active member of the American Physical Therapy Association and is excited to further is knowledge from the neck and back experts here at Rehab Authority. When Ryan isn’t in the clinic cracking jokes and treating patients you can find him spending time at the local gym or exploring the amazing outdoors that Idaho has to offer.
In Lake Helen, Florida, Jones built a $75 million corporate headquarters, which incorporated sound stages, film editing rooms and two homes. His privately held company had an estimated reported annual income of $300 million and was regarded as the largest manufacturer of exercise machines in the world. Physique legends John Grimek, Steve Reeves, Bill Pearl, Sergio Oliva, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Franco Columbu, Boyer Coe, Mike and Ray Mentzer and Casey Visator made their pilgrimage to meet the cantankerous tycoon and to train on Nautilus equipment.

Jones repeatedly maintained that his IQ was beyond measure and on par with the Wright brothers and Dr Albert Einstein. He claimed to have read his father's entire medical library, at least twice, before age 12, and every book in the Seminole Public Library, by age 14. With the desire to conquer the world, Arthur left school in the ninth grade and stated,
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.
MedX is the only equipment company with a short one foot weight stroke. Most companies’ weight stroke is two or more feet. What that means is 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. Another reason the shorter weight stroke is important is that if you have 120 pounds on the one foot weight stroke machine, then that means you are moving 120 pounds. On the other hand, if you have 120 pounds on a two foot weight stroke machine, then you are really lifting about 240 pounds depending on the machine. That also means that if you increase the weight by two pounds on a one foot machine, you really are increasing it by two pounds, whereas on a two foot machine you are raising it by five pounds which equates to a 10 pound increase.

This provides isolation of the lumbar spine muscles, increases stability and allows for specific, intensive strengthening in one of the body's most vital and vulnerable areas. Regular use of The Core Lumbar Strength may help prevent injuries, remedy chronic back pain, and contribute to disc hydration.
In Virginia, the chair of the state GOP resigned earlier this month, reportedly because of alt-right leaning, pro-Confederate candidate Corey Stewart’s win in the Republican primary. But even Stewart had to disavow Wisconsin’s Paul Nehlen, who is running to replace Speaker Paul Ryan. Nehlen’s too racist for Twitter and even for Gab, the preferred social media platform of the alt-right. Meanwhile, a California Republican running for Congress has been making appearances on neo-Nazi podcasts and argues on his campaign website that “diversity” is a Jewish plot. (The California GOP has disavowed him.)

Hanson is 35 and an attorney in La Grange, a suburb of Chicago. His campaign website promises he’s running “the hardest working, most motivated, and sincerest write-in campaign ever launched for a seat in the United States House of Representatives.” While that might not be a measurable claim, he definitely has the only write-in campaign against an elderly racist running for Congress in Illinois.
