  • Exercises at home & facility .pdf

    I have a 7 mb .pdf file of basic exercises for wheelchair users I scanned that I will upload to the site if the moderators are intetrested. The contents are:
    Program overview
    Exercises at Home
    Exercises at an exercise facility

    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.

    Liz, do it up! Your right, many people have much more limited abilities than others. I´ll sticky the .pdf file and keep it up top. Not for nothing but is it copyrighted? If it is, I may have to ask for permission first.

        The file is too big to upload it, I think you need moderator permission Mike, since ur one!. No, it is not copyrighted it was put together by those in the field who taught a class for pwd for something I won once. Just simple exercises for ppl in chairs, low function.

          exercize at home

          i'm a c-5/6 quad and got my Saratoga cycle the 1st of june.
          I use the handbike and a standing frame.
          I burn an average of 800 calories a day on the the handbike. I notice I sleep all the way through the night and my endurance has improved quite a bit.
          I bought the limited handgrips so i don't have to depend on anybody putting on the mitts. Man, I tell you I really love it.

                Thanks for scanning that! I never thought about using bands in some of those ways.

                  I agree - those are awesome!

                    yea I will look n see the brand of my bands if anyone wants to get some. they fit up on the door too. good luck everyone. maybe we should start a thread on what works best for us, if this benifits/ our strength/ endurance/etc.

                      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.
