Myalgic encephalomyelitis, or chronic fatigue syndrome, is a debilitating condition which can affect all kinds of people. Doctors recommend gentle, sub-aerobic exercise for people suffering from a mild level of this condition to prevent the loss of muscle tone. Wheelchair users with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis can find it difficult to get enough of this kind of exercise, especially as the condition itself makes any kind of physical activity tiring and often painful.
The best kind of exercises for myalgic encephalomyelitis for wheelchair users are ones that can be carefully controlled. The Invictus Active Trainer is ideal for this. While the trainer is more commonly used by people looking to perform an intense aerobic workout, it can also provide the perfect conditions for the wheelchair user to get gentle exercise.
