Rehabilitation units specializing in post-traumatic rehabilitation of war and conflict injured veterans, accident and genetic related Para Athletes are able to not only carve a path to quicker recovery and improved health, but also to develop skill specific, targeted direction towards Kayaking, Canoeing and the freedom that this sport also allows.
Multiple studies [Including Studies done by Anna Bjerkefors, of the Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences, GIH, Department of Sport and Health Sciences, Laboratory for Biomechanics and Motor Control. Click here to view reference documents] have almost unanimously shown, that in addition to the - not to be underestimated - Psycho- logical improvements that are derived, that the use of Kayak and Canoe ergometers as part of a rehabilitation and post-rehabilitated exercise regimen leads to an improved recovery, to improved thoracic, postural, arm and shoulder stability strength improvement.
Our SpeedStroke Kayak, Multistroke and SkiFast Ski Ergometers allow replication of the Kayaking, Canoeing, Skiing shoulder and arm action in a safe and controlled environment, minimizing instability of the work platform but yet allowing motor skill development, strength building and paddling or arm and shoulder specific co-ordination and improvements to be made. Upgrades of our Ergometers which allow their application in rehabilitation can be further made by the introduction of 2 upgradable seats for Para Athletes.
