Our trainer allows wheelchair users to experience the benefits of a real cardio workout, right from their own chair. Designed by wheelchair users, the Invictus Active Trainer can be used by people of all ages and capabilities. The trainer encourages you to maintain a constant and solid push and lets you concentrate solely on doing that.
Adjustable, compact – used in gyms, homes and clinics.
With the adjustable resistance and angle of the rollers, you can start out gently. You should aim to do 30-minutes three times a week at first. As you develop your technique and build up your muscles you can increase the resistance. This increments the force required and maximises your cardio workout. When you are able to perform an intense workout, you can reduce the time to just 20-minutes three times a week to enjoy the same health benefits.
There are numerous different workout routines that you can do with this wheelchair cardio machine – for example try alternating a minute at maximum intensity followed by 1 ½ minutes at a moderate pace. You can also use the virtual screen (see here) and push along your choice of 100’s routes from across the World.
