Maintaining strong wrists and arms as a wheelchair user is important to help reduce the risk of injury and to ensure you have the strength to push around day to day and be as active and independent as possible.
How can we help you improve wrist strength?
We (see here for more about us) have designed and developed our own product called the Invictus Active Trainer which is essentially a treadmill for wheelchair users. It enables you to push / propel your own wheelchair in a static safe environment and use the exact same muscles that you would use when pushing around on the ground. This mean you can build up wrist strength by increasing the rolling resistance and increasing your grip on the push rim of your wheelchair more than you would usually. As an exercise routine this will increase the strength and build muscles that will then make it easier and improve your pushing day to day.
