December Donations to Walk it Off

This year, Walk It Off is also fundraising for a larger facility! We have been hard at work growing over the last couple years and we are outgrowing our current home and looking to expand into a bigger one - Not that we don’t like all being in such close quarters, but we think everyone can agree, it’s getting a bit tight!

ICARE - Intelligently Controlled Assistive Rehabilitation Elliptical

This piece of equipment differs from a typical gym elliptical machine by allowing individuals with varying disabilities the opportunity to stand and take strides safely. A harness is used to support the individual while increasing or decreasing the amount of weight that goes into the feet. The ICARE offers the option to exercise with different degrees of motor assistance. The ICARE can be used as a typical elliptical or set to move an individuals legs when the motor senses muscle fatigue. It can also be set in automatic mode for those with complete paralysis.

'Total Gym' Equipment for Spinal Cord Injury Clients at WIO

The Total Gym (TG) offers many benefits to a Spinal Cord Injury client because it is adjustable to suit the individual’s physical abilities, needs and exercise goals no matter the level of paralysis. Completing exercises on the TG allows the client to perform movements they would not usually be able to complete, in a safe and controlled manner with the assistance of the SCI Recovery Trainer here at Walk it Off when needed.
