Thread: Exercises at home & facility .pdf

    Thanks, I think this is a good program for a number of people.

    I am not one who generally feels compelled to be politically correct (with a preface like that, here comes some political correctness), but I wish that they had not used the term "confined to a wheelchair." Once someone pointed out to me that without the wheelchair I would truly be confined, probably to my bed, I saw that the term "confined" really does not fit. With the modern wheelchair, I am freed rather than confined.

    Sorry for that digression. The information in this is very helpfu.

    Thanks again for posting it!

    What kind of excercise is required to be done in Paraplegia?

    It all depends on your level of paralysis. The best thing to do is experiment with different techiniques to see if you can accomplish some of the exercises.

    If you can afford it or can get insurance to buy it for you, I HIGHLY recommend the Schwinn Windjammer (http://www.komkare.com/phys_therapy/...inn_wjmmr.html). That seat comes off the rail and you can wheel right up to it. It's got very comfortable hand grips, a computer, and the fan blades blow air on you. It's very durable, too.

    I had a cheaper one for a few years - the "PowerTrainer" (http://storesense.megawebservers.com...ycles&pageID=1) It was CRAP. It wobbled, the hand grips were set at an uncomfortable angle, and it was loud. I eventually cracked the steel base plate where the cycle connects to the base from rigourous use. Don't bother with it.

    intelmikey47, just how long do you cycle in order to burn 800 calories?

    We need some for legs. They are great though.

    The exercises likely are not applicable to everyone, as we are all obviously at different physical and function levels. But, a good resource for those of us w less function.
    Im interested in some more exercises to add to my program
