Working Out During Rehab
Case Study: Tony Welker
After a workplace accident left him paralysed at a C4 level, Tony knew his life would never be the same. Still extremely weak but determined to regain as much independence as possible, upon discharge from hospital, he moved to a skilled rehabilitation facility where he received daily physiotherapy; wrapping ankle weights around his wrists to work on strengthening his arms. As his strength returned however, Tony soon required heavier weights and grew frustrated at his inability to grip dumbbells, a hurdle which was holding back his recovery. That was when he discovered Active Hands online and had soon ordered himself some General Purpose aids. The difference was instantaneous and, with the help of his new gripping aids, Tony was able to not only lift free weights, but also access numerous other rehab apparatus: pull-up bars, handbikes, pulley machines and more! This allowed his strength, abilities and level of independence to continually grow, giving him a level of freedom he would never have thought possible after his injury. "I ordered them just as soon as I got through watching the video... I can’t thank Active Hands enough for making such a great product."
