Owner of Riverdale Kids Physical Therapy
Endorses Ultimate Workout and Recovery’s The "Spider" Complete Home Gym
"As the owner of a pediatric private practice, I am always looking for new ways to motivate children to build strength, range of motion and coordination. It can be challenging to find activities and equipment that can target specific muscle groups for very focused work with this population, especially when children are in rehab for pre-surgical strengthening and post-surgical recovery. The Ultimate Workout and Recovery System is useful in that it enables children to work in a seated, supine or standing position, depending on what positions are accessible to them. I have found the unit particularly useful for children with unilateral weakness and decreased coordination as a result of brain injury. The unit can be colorful, with the use of different bands and tubing, which attracts children to it and increases their motivation to use it."
