At Neurolink, your specialist personal trainer will help achieve your exercise and fitness goals specific to your neurological ability. Your unique programme is tailored to strengthen weaker muscles using the PowerSports Integra wheelchair accessible fitness system.
PowerSports Integra system has varying levels of resistance to challenge your upper body. The use of the Cable System, Seated Lever Row, Triceps, Multipress and Latissimus Dorsi machines all helps to work your back and shoulder muscles, thereby promoting healthy shoulder mechanics. This is crucial in the long term management and prevention of shoulder injuries and pathologies if you are an active wheelchair user or walk with walking aids.
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.
