Dear Partners,

We would like to make you aware of some updates that have been made to the current equipment line. After lengthy review and testing, there have been modifications made in two specific areas:

  • length of safety chain and placement of spring clips
  • height of Cadillac bed

1. The Safety Chain on all new Cadillacs, V2 Max Plus™ Reformers* (Professional, Rehab and SPX models) and Wall Units will now have only one spring clip on each end of the chain. There will be no marked link or extra spring clip.

This standard safety chain length will be used in all exercises involving the push-thru bar with springs from below, whether they are performed with the hands or the feet on the bar. This will ensure that there is no excess chain dangling from the bar and will still provide maximum safety for clients and students.

Also, please continue to ensure that an instructor keeps a hand on the push-thru bar at all times whether springs are being used from above or below and that there is ideally one instructor per client.

2. The height of the Cadillac bed has been lowered from a distance of 23.75 inches (60cm) to 22.75 inches (58cm) from the floor. This adjustment will offer more space between the push-thru bar and the Cadillac bed when the bar is in its lowest position.

Please adjust your Cadillac beds to reflect this change as soon as possible.

We ask that you assist us in communicating this information by passing it on to your staff and students in current or upcoming workshops and courses.

We would also like to inform you of a weight restriction that has been placed on the horizontal bars of the Cadillac. Individual horizontal bars are designed to support a maximum of 200 lbs (90kg) to prevent excessive bowing and possible damage.

If you have questions regarding repositioning your Cadillac bed, please contact Ken Anderson, Commercial Sales Representative - ken.anderson@merrithew.com or call 1-800-910-0001.

If you would like more information from a programming perspective, please contact Stefania Della Pia, Program Director - stefania.dellapia@merrithew.com or Laureen DuBeau, Communications Director - laureen.dubeau@merrithew.com.
