Wheelchair Training Rollers

Wheelchair Training Rollers

The Invictus Active Trainer has been tried, tested and highly recommended by hospitals and rehab centres worldwide. Now, you can enjoy all the benefits that this wheelchair roller offers, in your own home. Whether you are looking to improve your balance, to lose weight, or to build muscle strength, the Invictus Active Trainer is an unparalleled training asset for wheelchair users.

 

The concept is simple, but the benefits are enormous. You just guide your wheelchair up the ramps, position your large wheels on top of the rollers, and start using your arms as if you are powering yourself along. The four independent rollers allow you to exercise each arm individually, or you can use both arms together to simulate ‘on-road’ pushing. Some wheelchair users develop a dominant arm, and using the Invictus Active Trainer can help you to balance the force in both arms so preventing potential injury to the previously weaker side.

Increases your mobility difficulties

During a 30-minute workout, you can burn up to 350-kcal. That means that the Invictus Active Trainer can help you to lose weight, especially when combining an exercise routine with a healthy diet. Due to the sedentary nature of being in a wheelchair, it can be difficult to find ways to use up sufficient calories every day to stop the pounds from accumulating. This excess weight not only increases your mobility difficulties, it can, of course, lead to other health problems.

A daily workout on your wheelchair rollers will improve both cardiac and respiratory functions, increasing your general level of fitness. With regular use, you will develop better coordination, balance and technique, all of  which will assist you in your daily movements in your wheelchair. Ramps and inclines will no longer be such as challenge for you, so extending the places that you can reach in your wheelchair.
