Spanish translation:máquina multicadera
Explanation:
This calque is little used, but I have been up one side and down the other without finding anything better. The site ffc gives does show the machine in question, but ffc errs in stating that it is used for stretching; it is for resistance training. Nor would I refer to "flexión". While correct in its general sense, in the context of weightlifting it refers to the movements produced by a flexor muscle or muscles, such as curls. The machine is called "multi-hip" because it allows not only flexion (bringing the knee toward the chest) but also extension (pushing the knee behind the lifter), abduction (raising the knee to the outside), and adduction (raising the knee to the inside, across the standing leg).
