Fitness equipment for wheelchair users
Getting fit or losing weight is not easy – and it’s somewhat a little harder if you are wheelchair users. But it’s not impossible! Did you know what in fact using your arms and upper body increases your heart rate more than using your legs? – what this means is you can actually more more calories using your arms that using your legs! But how do you do this?… We have taken a look at some exercise equipment out there and will be featuring them on The Accessible Planet – first up is the Invictus Active Trainer. WOW – it’s an impressive trainer, it’s essentially a treadmill for a wheelchair which connects to your phone or tablet and records all your data. It’s been developed by wheelchair users who obviously understand wheelchairs and have first hand experience. The video below is defiantly worth a watch…

Getting the right wheelchair is essential – what we mean by the “right wheelchair” is what they meets your needs and requirements and enables you to be as active and independent as possible. A wheelchair suitable for you can improve your quality of life, but unfortunately not all OT’s and wheelchair services are good and people end up with the wrong wheelchair for them. Before you speak to an OT, a physio or go along to the wheelchair services appointment speak to wheelchair users, browse the internet and go along to a specialist shop.

New website and brand refresh!
After nearly 5 years being live it was time for a ‘refresh’ – both in terms of how our website worked and the overall design. Although we made slight alternations to The Accessible Planet we needed to invest in a new platform that was easier to view products and services but also easier for people and businesses to join us – the easier it is to find things the better! We feel we have achieve this and the website is looking a lot more improved – we now have a team working continuing on improvements and changes, this is almost daily to ensure we continue to grow, if not at a faster rate than before… For our new website, logo and brand identity we needed to source professional services, many thanks to Garreth at Creativenergy for his work across the whole platform and all areas of design – be sure to reach out to them here.
