Vertical Traction

Strengthen your shoulders, back muscles and trunk while improving your posture

Targeting user’s arm and latissimus dorsi back muscles, the ARTIS Vertical Traction unit provides a comfortable and guided workout in a sleek and efficient machine.

Whether you’re looking to improve your back or shoulder strength, alleviate muscular imbalance in your arms or trunk, or if you’re looking to strengthen your shoulder joint, the ARTIS Vertical Traction unit is for you.

The lat-targeting pulldown exercise is aided by the machine’s natural elliptical range of motion, which also works in tandem with the adjustable backrest to encourage correct posture and to ensure that your workout is as efficient as it can be, regardless of your experience. Take advantage of the two independent arm action to increase your coordination.  

Direct drive

The ground-breaking direct drive technology incorporated into the ARTIS Strength range puts it several steps ahead of any other strength training equipment around.

The system uses rigid shafts, rather than cables, to transmit the resistance from the weight stack directly to the levers. Without having to deal with the slack, and inherent delay in resistance that cables bring to your workout, the immediate force feedback that ARTIS direct drive delivers, is exceptionally responsive and provides a totally fluid range of motion for the user.

The removal of cables and pulleys from the equipment not only provides a more efficient and effective workout, but with fewer moving parts, machine maintenance is reduced - meaning less machine downtime and more workout time.

Bodyprint system

Each ARTIS unit is equipped with a posture-improving bodyprint padding for the seat and backrest.

The bodyprint system is comprised of high density foam that adapts anatomically to the shape of each individual user, providing complete comfort and improved stabalisation of joints, bones and muscles during exercise.

This added support can dramatically improve mid-rep posture, thus increasing each user’s potential strength and providing a more rounded, more intense workout.


The ARTIS Strength range is fitted with a low-energy 7-inch lite version of UNITY. This allows the unit to run without cables, receiving its power through kinetic energy collected and stored through workouts undertaken by the user.

The units gather information from users MyWellness Keys or NFC-enabled mobile phones with the MyWellness Cloud app installed. The display provides mid-workout visual feedback, counting reps, monitoring the quality of each rep, and issuing a final score between 0 and 100 based how much effort had been expended by the user, and how close they are to reaching their personally set goals.
