DO YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO STAND UP TO ACCESS WINGS?

Being able to stand is NOT essential when doing you’re therapy at Wings. Initially the Exercise Physiologist will be with you to do an assessment to determine your treatment type, and in fact, depending on your condition you won’t have to get out of your wheelchair. As you progress there are several possibilities. These may include group opportunities, reduced supervision, buddy situations, or independent exercise. Depending on your condition, exercise confidence and movement ability we will discuss the best option for you.
