Modified home exercise equipment – – what’s working for you?
Over 10 years of published research shows that moderate exercise is beneficial for those who have ALS.
We pALS can exercise laying on our beds, standing with a walker or, sitting in a chair – – to perform simple stretches, strengthening, and range of motion movements. But what about exercise for our cardio (heart-lung) endurance? Cardio traditionally is achieved by moving our arms and legs for a duration of at least 10-15 minutes. A feat not always easy for a person with ALS! This is where modified exercise equipment comes in, and meets the need.
What modified home equipment have you (or your pALS) used, and would you recommend it to others? Share your thoughts and links to products in the comments section below.
