Technogym, ACSM Partner on ‘Exercise in Medicine’ Initiative

The Italian fitness tech and equipment brand has been working with ACSM researchers since 2010 to create disease treatment protocols

Technogym and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) have deepened their ties, with the Italian fitness giant now an official partner of both the ACSM and the organization’s global Exercise in Medicine initiative.

As a leading fitness technology and equipment brand and the official supplier to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, Technogym has been selected for what it calls “several global projects and institutional efforts” aimed at promoting exercise as a preventative measure and as a therapeutic for treating a variety of conditions.

The ACSM’s global Exercise in Medicine initiative was launched in 2007 and encourages health professionals to include exercise in medical prescriptions. ACSM researchers have collaborated with Technogym since 2010 to create treatment protocols for cardiovascular diseases, obesity, Type 2 diabetes and osteoporosis using specific exercise programs. 

“We are excited about this next phase of our long-time partnership with Technogym,” ACSM president Stella Volpe, PhD, said. “Leaders evolve and adapt as they seek continuous improvement, and we share a mutual vision to drive better health through physical activity and advances in science, technology and innovation.”

The sports medicine organization has made its training and information channels available to the sports medicine professionals it represents, as well as its nearly 50,000 members and certified professionals from 90 countries.

For its part, Technogym has been a pioneer in prevention with its ‘Technogym as Medicine‘ philosophy and offerings, such as its premium health and fitness equipment and ecosystem. Founded by Nerio Alessandri in the early 1980s, Technogym has evolved into an AI-based, end-to-end open platform, transforming the fitness and health experience for both consumers and operators.

Two of Technogym’s leading AI-driven offerings, Technogym Checkup and Technogym Coach, have transformed fitness equipment into a “fitcare” system.

Technogym Checkup, a high-tech health assistant that assesses physical and cognitive conditions and allows operators to prescribe and provide personalized programs, can measure body composition, strength, balance, mobility and cognitive abilities. It also forms a “Wellness Age,” so users are provided a well-being metric that is more comprehensive than a biological age. 

Technogym Coach serves as an AI-based trainer that provides users with a personalized prescription, guiding and encouraging them on their health journey while adjusting its results-targeted training programs as users make progress.
