I Can Therapy Centre

Summary
A specially adapted power assisted exercise facility enabling users to move more and feel better. Ideal for those who may be inactive, deconditioned, older, disabled, lonely, isolated or managing a long-term health condition. Operated by independent charity Valley Leisure Ltd (Reg Charity Number 800760).


Description

‘I Can’ provides a unique movement and exercise experience designed to mobilise muscles and joints throughout their natural range of movement.

The Centre features a circuit of eight specially adapted power assisted exercise equipment machines and one therapy bike; ideal for people of all ages who may be inactive and deconditioned, disabled, living with limited mobility, pre or post-surgery, older adults and for those managing long-term conditions including Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, stroke, fibromyalgia, diabetes and arthritis to name but a few; to embark on their journey to improved health and wellbeing.

Unlike conventional exercise equipment, the power assisted exercise equipment at I Can does not rely exclusively on muscle power but by an electronic power system which generates a user’s initial movement patterns. This enables users to move passively in the first instance. Depending upon a person’s ability and mobility, users can then exert their own muscular force, therefore, exercising ‘actively’ which will further improve strength and heart and lung fitness.

It is an ideal and safe way to exercise and work all the major muscle groups and help to re-train muscle movement patterns and at the same time stimulate the muscles for improved strength and circulation.
