Medilink member, Shapemaster Global Ltd, have committed to keep older adults and those with long term health conditions moving and mobile throughout the ongoing period of isolation. The company who design and manufacture power assisted exercise equipment and supply to leisure centres and rehabilitation facilities have created a free to view series of video exercise programmes which has already been accessed by over a thousand users.
Specialist Physiotherapist, Rachel Young who delivers some of the home-based exercises commented, “We know how vitally important Shapemaster equipped centres are for the older adult population. Not only because of the supported exercise it enables but also the social engagement and peer support provided for isolated and vulnerable adults. The introduction of the online video exercises is a small touch in keeping people moving and engaged and should be absolutely encouraged for those who have access to the internet or digital online devices”.
The videos can be accessed by the company’s social media channels and further support can be obtained by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
