    Thank You

    Hi All,

    I have spent a lot of time in this forum over the last few years. Great information that helped me get out of my wheelchair. Thank You. Check out my post "The Long Road Back" in the Life section to see the payoff.

    To pay it forward I am attaching a copy of the plan I used to manage all aspects of my rehabilitation. I have created and directed training programs for elite athletes for many years. So this rehab model parallels my approach to sports training.

    Patient directed care is still not well understood in much of the medical community. I also used the drawing to remind my OT's and PT's and Dr.'s and Trainers that they were part of a big team. It motivated them to make their decisions "in the context of an overall team effort" and to share information beyond a few chart notes and insurance reports.

    I have many training calendars, loading models and equipment progressions if anyone is interested. They are all sub-components of the attached overview.

    Again, Thank-You All,
    Ramey 'Coach' Stroud

    C3/C4 incomplete 10 months out. I use a treadmill with a harness for safety (used to carry some of my weight) along with an engine puller (cherry picker) out in my garage. Works fantastic. Added motorcycle handle bars for some style, instead of the treadmill bar.
    Also use LiveStrong recumbent stationery bike. Bolted over the ankle tennis shoes to the pedals, as hard time keeping my feet on the bike even with the plastic covers it came with. Shoes works great. Slide my feet in (others put them in), then start peddling. Like the idea of using my arms while pedaling, for heart rate to go up more.

    Starting 2nd month of pool therapy. Excellent results. Am now able to walk in the shallow (3 feet) end of therapy pool (93 degrees) and practicing walking up and down special pool stairs. Usually use the lift to get in the pool still though. Highly recommend pool therapy - good results for many.

    Also go to the gym once a week and workout legs & arms for one hour. Alot slower, hard to get in some machines, but a buddy helps me - getting stronger though. Also lift hand weights (5 lbs.) at home. Started with 1 lb. weights.

    Get stretched out daily for one hour to keep me more limber. Helps a lot.

    Also walk with walker - would love to get to the cane mode in future. That'd be awesome. Walk about 30 minutes or more per day. Someone follows me in my powerchair in case I need to rest.
