Weight training equipment designed with the wheelchair user in mind

Exercise is a fundamental key to good health. It is even more important when you are confined to a wheelchair. Over 30 years of weight training experience from the wheelchair has gone into the design of our machines which can be used by paras & quads as well as the able bodied!

Station 1: Vertical Bench Press

Most of the major muscle groups (chest, shoulder, triceps, and back muscles) in your upper body are exercised using the Vertical Bench Press Station. The Bench Press is a foundation movement with most muscle training programs. Each arm work independently of the other, allowing you to select varying weights, should you have more strength in one side than the other. Additionally, each arm has a fully adjustable height to fit your individual needs. The hand grips are adjustable for either wide or narrow grip by sliding the handles to the desired position. Hand grip is not required, just place the palms on the handles and push away. The back support is fully adjustable and allows for different positions for either a partial or full press. Your pushing movement holds you securely in place. Straps and retaining devices are not needed. This station comes standard with 200# weight stack in 10 pound units. Larger and smaller stacks available.

Station 2: Seated Military Press

This exercise works the chest, shoulder, back and tricep muscles. The handle is fully adjustable to allow for your individual height. The padded back rest prevents you from tipping over backwards while pressing up. The removable stool allows the able bodied to use both the Vertical Bench Press and the Seated Military Press. Weight selection is done by simply moving the selector pin. 

Station 3: High/Low Pulleys

This station has upper and lower handle attachments connected to the weight stack, through a series of pulleys and cables, giving you a wide variety of different exercises that can be done. The pulley station will exercise your chest, shoulder, biceps-tricepts and forearm muscles very effectively. This can all be done from the wheelchair without assistance. Additionally the PREACHER BENCH attachment can be added to this station to execute forward and reverse curls. When dealing with trace muscle groups the hi/lo pulley stack can be counter balanced to almost zero resistance and weight change can be done in increments of 1 pound.

Station 4: Lat Pull Down

This station exercises the back and shoulder muscles as well as the tricep muscles, again all done from the wheelchair without assistance. "S" hooks can be added to the bar for use with the padded wrist cuffs. The LAP PAD prevents you from coming out of the chair. This pad works for the able bodied also. The lat bar can be pulled down behind the neck and down to the front of your chest. These are movements that work your back muscles. You can also reverse your grip, palm facing you, grab close to the center of the bar and pull down in front to your chest. This movement works your biceps as well as your back.

Station 5: Vertical Butterfly Or Peck Deck

This station is designed so that all you have to do is back your wheelchair up to it to begin your work-out. This unit is fantastic for the shoulder and chest muscles. Because it does not require any hand holds, it is an excellent machine for Quads. All work is done by placing your arms behind the pads, which work independently of each other, and squeezing with shoulder and chest muscles. This unit is a favorite with many of the wheelchair racers as the movement gives them extra strength for pushing their rims. This unit comes standard with 200 pound weight stack in 10 pound units. A 150 pound combo weight stack in 5 and 10 pound units is also available. Selection of desired weight is accomplished by simply moving one pin for the desired weight.

Station 5: Leg Curl/Leg Extension

This unit can be ordered as station 5 rather than the vertical butterfly unit. Many hospitals and rehab centers work with patients that have some use of lower extremities. We can also add the leg curl/leg extension to make a 6th freestanding station. The leg curl/leg extension works the major muscle groups in the thigh, both the frontal thighs (quadriceps) and rear thighs - hamstring. This unit comes standard with 200 weight stack in 10 pound units. Smaller weight stacks available.

Station 6: Lateral Deltoid 

Station 7: Seated Leg Press/Calf Extension
