About our project



The AB BED is an innovative exercise machine that permits individuals to strengthen and tone their core muscles comfortably while reducing the risks of injury or re-injury.

This is an ideal exercise device as it is a training tool for athletes but also for people recovering from injuries or who have limited core strength.

How the AB BED Works:

The patented design of the AB BED completely revolutionizes the abdominal workout by placing the user in a comfortable, lay-flat position which eliminates stress on the neck and back.

The AB BED incorporates hinged, contoured panels that support your body along its entire length. These panels flex and pivot to move in conjunction with the natural flow of your body, enabling a wide variety of exercises to strengthen and tone the upper and lower abdominals, obliques, hip flexors, hamstrings and gluteal muscles – all while reducing the risk of injury.

Dozens of AB BED exercises allow users to either isolate individual muscle groups or experience a single-motion, full abs workout. Tension bands on the underside increase resistance to the user’s desired level. To see a small sample of exercises enabled by the AB BED, watch our video above.

AB BED’s patented design provides deep core muscle development for people of any fitness level or age group. The versatility of movement allows users to perform a variety of exercises within the limits of their strength and range of motion.

Why the AB BED is Right For You:

The AB BED was designed with many users in mind. From doctors offices to gyms and physical therapy clinics, the AB BED offers a flexible method of training various people.

Gyms

Variable-resistance exercises on the AB BED are ideal for muscle toning and strength building for users of all ages and body types. The comfortable lay-flat position provides users with a unique workout experience that is not achievable with competing devices. The AB BED allows gym owners to differentiate themselves from their competitors with this one-of-a-kind device.

Collegiate and Professional Athletics Teams

Athletes face a constant challenge of battling through cycles of injury and recovery. The AB BED helps recovering athletes exercise their total core in a way that helps reduce the risk of reinjury, reducing delays in their recovery period. Whether it’s football, soccer, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, or any other sport, the AB BED helps athletes avoid a costly injuries and re-injuries.

Physical Therapy Clinics

Other abdominal workout machines require the user to engage in a broad range of motion, with increased flexion and extension of the lumbar and cervical spine.

The AB BED provides better stability of the spine during exercise, which may help avoid aggravating an existing or past injury. Patients who lack significant core strength can perform prescribed exercises to gradually tone and strengthen their core using appropriate levels of resistance.

Chiropractic Offices

Patients of chiropractors can benefit from performing prescribed exercises to strengthen their core while stabilizing the lumbar and cervical spine. Patients may gradually tone and strengthen their core with varying levels of resistance.

Personal Trainers

The AB BED supports a variety of exercises to effectively develop a wide range of muscles including the upper and lower abdominals, obliques, hip flexors, hamstrings and gluteal muscles, all while reducing risks of injury to your clients. The AB BED is portable enough to fit in the trunk of a car.

The AB BED’s unique patented design allows personal trainers to differentiate their workout offering by bringing their clients an unparalleled exercise experience.

Under-strength individuals

By placing the user in a comfortable, lay-flat position, the AB BED allows people who lack significant core strength to exercise their core with appropriate levels of resistance. For example, while lying on their back—fully-supported along their length—the user can exercise their oblique muscles by simply bending sideways.

While lying on their side— again, fully supported along the length of their body—the user can perform leg raises with less resistance than gravity or the weight of their legs. This ability to perform very low-resistance exercises allows under-strength users to build their strength gradually.

How We Will Use Your Contributions

Years of hard work and detailed design iterations have produced a well-engineered and field tested prototype AB BED. However, in order to get our first AB BEDs into the hands of end users and start making a difference in their lives, we must build a critical mass of orders. These funds will be used for our first production run.

By meeting our goal, we will be able to overcome the costs of tooling and manufacturing setup, and begin producing our first set of AB BEDs at a price that is affordable to end users.
