He also developed and owned spine and cardio vascular rehabilitation centers, where he used his S.Ma.R.T.-EX™ program.
In the early 1980s, Dr. Ben founded Cardio Management Systems and used resistance training as an intricate part of Phase 2 Cardiac Rehabilitation. This was the first documented and formal use of such exercise and is now commonplace protocol. In the mid-1980s, Dr. Ben became the exercise physiologist for Lehrman Back Centers in Miami Beach, Florida.
