The use of the Cable System, Seated Lever Row, Triceps, Multipress and Latissimus Dorsi machines all helps to work the back and shoulder muscles, thereby promoting healthy shoulder mechanics. This is crucial in the long term management and prevention of shoulder injuries and pathologies in active wheelchair users and clients who use walking aids. Similarly, the cable system is used in lower limb work to improve muscular strength and control in the hips and knees. Both strength and control are needed for efficient walking.

Resistance pulleys allow you to train the upper body from a seated or standing position. The Pulleys also allow for the isolation of all major muscle groups ensuring you get a balanced workout with varying amount of weighted resistance.

Programmes are lead in clinic by our specialist neuro physiotherapists and our Personal Trainers on a 1:1 basis.
