National Disability Insurance Scheme, has undoubtedly helped countless persons with disability to get back to main stream of life. At OSAN Ability Assist, we feel very proud to play an important role as a registered NDIS provider in Parramatta in this process.
All our support staff put their heart & soul into their profound job and work relentlessly to support NDIS participants by not just helping them in their daily activities, but also encouraging them in social participation. As we work with the goal to see our patients live the life just like any normal person, we try to help over and above a mere treatment.
As one the leading aged care service providers in Parramatta, Sydney OSAN Ability Assist have listed below few of the effective exercises which people with disability, even with wheelchairs can perform and improve their health gradually.
For patients with some mobility in upper body
You can lift weights sitting in a wheelchair using dumbbells of lightweight or simple items found in the home such as food can, etc. Moving empty hands as if you are holding dumbbells can also be done if you cannot carry weight or simply to warm-up.
- Strengthens shoulders
Hold the armrests of your chair in a way that your hands are beneath the shoulders and try to push yourself up. Then slowly lower yourself down and get seated again.
- Strengthens your chest, triceps, and front of the shoulders
Hold the resistance band in both the hands and straighten your arms to the shoulder level. By fixing them at the elbow, spread the arms to the sides, just liked birds spread their wings. Bring the arms back to the original position slowly.
- 15 times each in 3 sets
- Rest for a minute in-between set
- Strengthens upper back and shoulders
For patients with some mobility in lower body
First, lift one knee up to the point you can without putting too much pressure, and then slowly lower it. Repeat the same with the other knee.
- Strengthens hip flexors
Move your ankle in a circular motion as if you are drawing a circle with toes on both left and right sides. Repeat it with the other ankle as well.
- Strengthens ankles
Providing disability support in Parramatta and other suburbs in Sydney, we would be glad to clarify our patients’ doubts regarding these and any other exercise.
