Extra-ordinary Exercise for NeuroMuscular Centre


The NeuroMuscular Centre provides a range of unique services and specialist advice for people with Muscular Dystrophy ranging from Physiotherapy, Training, Design + Print Services, Support and Advice. Our physiotherapy department needs specialized equipment to deliver continued support for people with MD. The EasyStand Glider equipment.

Our goals:

  • This adapted cross trainer would improve cardiovascular and respiratory fitness.
  • The aim of this is to enable individuals to live fulfilling independent lives.
  • This equipment would help people with MD gain strength if they used the easy glider on a regular basis.

How we will achieve our goals

By gaining a community award we would be able to purchase the Easystand glider equipment.

Where the money will go

People with muscular dystrophy do not just lose muscle power in their limbs but also in their heart, lungs & other organs.

Having this equipment would give us the potential to create an adapted gym for our muscular dystrophy community.
