Combating COVID-19 with Exercise

The findings from HUR's research team led by Professor Arto Hautala, HUR Director of Research and Education suggested that high level of physical fitness induced by prior exercise training may confer some innate immune-protection against the COVID-19 virus. In addition, there are also some evidence that skeletal muscle contributes to general inflammation and acute-phase response.

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a type of respiratory failure characterized by rapid onset of widespread inflammation in the lungs that prevents oxygen from reaching the organs. It has been reported in many COVID-19 patients. A cause of death for 3%-17% of patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 is ARDS. COVID-19 patients with this dismal clinical complication have a mortality rate of greater than 50%. 

Research has shown that endurance exercise promotes the production of an antioxidant called extracellular superoxide dismutase (EcSOD) that breaks down the free radical superoxide outside of the cells. Studies have provided proof-of-principle evidence that delivery of the EcSOD gene or protein to elevate the amount of EcSOD in the blood and vital organs may be an effective intervention for protection of the lungs and other vital organs against damages caused by ARDS and multiple organ failure.

With over 10,000 installations worldwide, HUR continues to strive stronger despite the pandemic. Continue exercising at home and maintain a healthy lifestyle as much as you can. There are more studies being conducted to provide further proof and clarification on how it can help combat the current pandemic. Get in touch with us if you would like to know more about these research papers as well.

We have recently been exploring several cardio equipment that can work well together with our HUR Circuit System. Zen Wellness Sanctuary are now the official distributor for the Expresso & CyberCycle bikes here in Malaysia.

Both the Expresso and CyberCycle offer an immersive training experience, with the largest available touchscreen, that comes with road racing programs, live studio cycling, and multiple interactive games. 

Exergaming is a form of physical activity which combines exercise and video games. It has been shown to delay the onset of Alzheimer’s and dementia much better than traditional exercise and keeps riders feeling sharp, young and independent. Plus, it is tons of fun!

ZWS Installation: Activ Life, Ampwalk Mall

Activ Life is a pioneer program for senior and neurorehabilitation that now coincides with an existing physiotherapy centre. Activ Life planned for a complete circuit setup that also caters to the needs of the physiotherapy centre for strength training and active reconditioning.

Despite the pandemic, our manufacturers strived to provide on-time delivery and our appointed forwarders assured proper sanitization and maintenance of product packaging.

The installation was done within the day, with no delays or obstructions, thanks to the help of the staff. The layouts were set beforehand and the new Hi5 system is WiFi compatible, which made the installation very smooth.
