Increasing Strength, Stability and Ability to Stand
"I am a 30-year-old woman challenged with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, and use a power wheelchair and assistance dog to navigate the world.
To move and burn calories never happened on a regular basis until I got on the NuStep on January 6, 2010. This is an amazing machine!
Since I began using it between 3 and 4 times a week, I have not only been able to go from no exercise to regular exercise, but I can bear weight with minimal assistance and can pull myself up to standing from the floor with much less assistance.
My ability to stand, overall leg strength and trunk stability have increased greatly. I have also lost many inches off my waist and about 7 pounds.
It's incredible to get on the NuStep and know that by the time I'm done, I'll break out into a sweat. The NuStep has changed my life."
