Reformer upgrades and expansion

There are a myriad of options when it comes to upgrades and expansion for the Merrithew range of reformers. Some of these upgrades are as follows.

High Precision Gear Bar upgrade

With 50% more gearbar positions (6 positions) than our traditional system, our new Precision Gearbar System offers superior ergonomic spring placement and adds superior adjustability to meet user needs. Spring slots provide secure anchoring of the springs with six different options for spring tension. To make adjustments, simply pull two spring-loaded pins and slide the entire mechanism forward or backward and lock the gearbar in place to any of the six stopper settings

Add a Vertical Frame and Mat Converter

Adding a Vertical Frame and Mat Converter to your Reformer dramatically increases programming options—about 80% of Cadillac exercises can be done on one machine. You don’t need to increase your floor space to expand your programming

Reformer extension upgrades

Tall clients? Need a little extra length? An extension upgrade adds an additional 6 in to both the frame and the carriage on your Reformer. For additional support the extension also includes mid-rail legs. A great option for tall clients (6 ft 4 in+) or those with long torsos.

Simply order your Reformer and add an Extension Upgrade. If added to a Bundle, we will substitute the Extra Long Reformer Box with Footstrap in place of the regular Reformer Box
