The Origins of Nautilus and MedX
Our equipment finds its origin with Arthur Jones, the founder of Nautilus Sports Medical Industries and MedX Corporation. In the mid 1970’s,mJones invented the concept of direct variable resistance, a profound step toward making exercise equipment more efficient and more effective than traditional exercise tools. Jones’ son went on to found Hammer Strength utilizing similar design elements and introducing low friction design. In the mid 1980’s, Jones sold Nautilus to devote his time and personal fortune to the research of treating America’s most costly and debilitating affliction: low back pain. The result was the founding of MedX Corporation and the introduction of the MedX Lumbar Extension machine. Over forty peer-reviewed research studies support the MedX Lumbar Extension machine as the most effective treatment for low back pain in the world today. The technology used in this machine was soon implemented in a complete line of strength training machines.
