Kayezen’s mobile systems offer faster set-up times, instant resistance level changes and accessories that deliver hundreds of strength and mobility exercise options at a fraction of the cost of the equipment it replaces.
The company’s VECTOR systems were awarded “Most Versatile Band Tool” by Men’s Health magazine in February 2021 for the ability to “attach this cable-machine replacement anywhere and adjust tension with a swift dial twist”.
The company’s systems have been purchased by pro and amateur athletes, dozens of teams in the USA’s largest sports leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL), Division 1 colleges, training environments, and physical therapy clinics that range from sports-related injury to neurological speciality practices.
