Cubii Donates Over 500 Seated Compact Ellipticals to Senior Living Communities Across North America

CHICAGO–To help senior living community residents stay healthy and active during the COVID-19 shelter-in-place, Cubii, maker of the Cubii compact seated elliptical that helps people stay active and gain mobility with low-impact exercise, has donated more than 500 of its seated compact elliptical products to over 100 communities in need across the United States and Canada.

At a time in their lives when activity is essential for health and well-being, Cubii’s products help seniors living through a lockdown to safely and easily incorporate low-impact exercise into their daily lives – from the comfort of their own rooms.

“Lockdowns make it even more challenging for seniors to get the daily movement they need to stay healthy,” said Arnav Dalmia, CEO of Cubii. “Given the impact our products can have for those who are most vulnerable during this pandemic, we have a responsibility to make safe physical activity accessible to as many as possible.”

Sunrise Assisted Living in Washington, D.C.; Belmont Village in Houston, TX; Ozarks Methodist Manor in Marionville, MO; The Lantern of Madison in Madison, OH; Friends Care Community in Yellow Springs, OH; and Brandywine Assisted Living in Mount Laurel, NJ, were among those that received Cubii products. Cubii worked with Chicago-based startup incubators 1871 and MATTER along with Direct Supply, Welltower® (NYSE: WELL), and Optima Living to deliver the seated compact elliptical products to senior living communities in just 10 days. Optima Living, a leading provider of quality of life options with 11 seniors communities in Western Canada.

“COVID-19 has presented an unprecedented challenge for senior care communities,” said Lisa Van Dusen, Vice President of Sales at Direct Supply. “Finding ways to keep residents engaged and physically active during the quarantine has been a big concern. The Cubii elliptical trainers are a great solution for seniors to use within the safety of their rooms. An administrator from one of our communities said this opportunity seems like ‘divine intervention.’”

Cubii focuses on serving the large, rapidly growing population of people who are not getting enough physical activity due to a lack of time, physical ability, or motivation. Cubii’s flagship product, the Cubii Pro compact elliptical, provides Bluetooth-connected, low-impact exercise so individuals can stay active at their own pace, in their own place.
