Thera Trainer Balo 536. Standing frame and balance

To raise funds for me to buy a Thera trainer Balo-536 to replace my NHS supplied Standing frame,

We did it!

On 12th Nov 2017 we successfully raised £260 with 9 supporters in 56 days

I am a paraplegic and i am looking to raise funds for me to buy a Thera trainer Balo-536 to replace my NHS supplied Standing frame,  the Thera trainer is essentially a standing frame that allows movement at the hips and ankles in all directions to help with balance and essentially an exercise regime. Standing is a vital thing for people permanently confined to wheelchairs to do, so you are wait bearing through your legs there are many reasons for this

Bone density maintenance

Improving muscle strength and posture

Decrease the risk of ulcer

Decreases depression and increases self esteem

Improve motor function

The standing improves cardio-circulatory function

Aids respiratory functions, bowel function and bladder drainage

The reason i Thera trainer will be so much better for me then the NHS Owestry standing frame supplied is i have used one before at a self funded private physio, and know that it is a much more comfortable and a more natural standing position and allows me to move while i am in the standing position which is much better for my joints and it also allows me to do far my exercises while in a standing position which is obviously incredibly important for my hea;th.

Any amount of help with this funding will be greatly recieved and make live that bit easier and hopefully healthier
