Wheelwrights 2020 Funding

Apply now for a set of resistance bands so that you can keep active at home during this difficult time.  If your application is successful we will send you a resistance band set which will include hand grips, ankle straps and a door anchor that make it easier to target different muscle groups, including biceps and triceps, back and shoulders, chest and legs and abdominals.

Resistance training builds resistive power in body muscles and there are many benefits to adding these exercises to your weekly routine.

The bands can be used for the exercises features in our Resistance Band Exercises for Wheelchair Users film or for yoga, warming up before exercising, strength training or physical therapy rehabilitation.  They are designed for aerobic and anaerobic exercise, physical fitness and weight loss.

You must be a UK resident and physically disabled to apply.
