This specialist power assisted equipment has enabled me to exercise for the first time in six years and help me regain a more confident post-stroke mobility in addition to healthy weight loss. Anyone waking up from a stroke should have access to this unique and innovative power assisted exercise equipment.
The machines have opened up muscles that have been asleep for 30 odd years. I wish I found them earlier. I've definitely noticed a difference with my mobility and my balance. The different equipment makes it easily accessible and gives users theor independence back again.
