How easy is it for someone with trunk and limb weakness to operate the Exercise Wheelchair?

The Exercise Wheelchair is designed to be an effective exercise option for a  full range of motor abilities.  The legs can be exercised separately from the trunk, and when the trunk is included, a very weak individual can begin with only a small range of trunk flexion and extension.  As strength and coordination improve, the range of motion at the hips can be increased.

Can the Exercise Wheelchair be used as a regular wheelchair?

Yes, the Exercise wheelchair operates as a regular wheelchair when not in ‘exercise mode’.  The leg mechanism slides up under the chair and the seat back can be locked in place.
