Our Gym

Push to Walk’s gym is a positive, uplifting environment designed to facilitate hard work and achieve desired results. This setting allows each client to work at his or her own pace and set stretch goals under the direction of professional trainers. The facility is completely accessible.

RT600 Step and Stand with fully integrated FES
The RT600 is the only fully integrated upright FES stepping therapy system simultaneously achieving muscle activation and weight bearing. The stepping stride length is adjustable from 9” to 18.” Independent motor powered footplates provide adjustable range of motion and firmness to augment plantar and dorsiflexion during stepping while accommodating tone and spasticity. Restorative-therapies.com/rt600

FES RT300 Bike
The RT300 combines a motorized cycle ergometer with integrated functional electrical stimulation (FES). This FES bike stimulates the muscles of the leg to contract and create a repetitive patterned movement (cycling). The benefits for individuals with paralysis include prevention of muscle atrophy, relaxation of muscle spasms, increased circulation, and increased or maintenance of range of motion. Restorative-therapies.com/rt300sl

FES RT200 Recumbent Elliptical
The RT200 is the only motorized FES device that works both arms and legs simultaneously. Called “hybrid” therapy, stimulating the upper and lower body at the same time can result in higher cardiovascular demands. With the RT200, it is possible to stimulate up to 6 muscle groups in the legs, arms or core on each side (12 total). Restorative-therapies.com/rt200

Weight Assisted Treadmill
Our body weight supported treadmill training is similar to locomotor training. Our trainers incorporate the same principles used in locomotor training to reactivate and stimulate a client’s nervous system. The repetitive motion of the gait pattern helps awaken central pattern generators, which are located lower in the spinal cord and are responsible for the gait cycle, to hopefully allow for controlled walking. The treadmill also reinforces the weight bearing principles our trainers use.

Keiser Functional Trainer
The functional trainer allows for a variety of exercises in all planes of motion. It has two adjustable arms which allow the user to perform exercises bilaterally or unilaterally. As a Keiser product, it utilizes pneumatic resistance which makes it easy to adjust to different levels and allows consistency throughout a given movement. It is especially useful with rotational exercises which challenge the muscles of the pelvis and torso. We prefer that clients use the functional trainer out of their wheelchairs to make whole-body workouts more beneficial. Keiser Functional Trainer Information

Keiser Infinity Performance Trainer
Keiser’s Performance Trainer is a single-column, high-low pulley system that provides resistance without high impact. This system is controlled by an air compressor that allows us to increase the weight from 0-70lbs in 1/10lb increments, which is very important for someone with a neurological disorder. Keiser Infinity Performance Trainer Information

York Power Rack
The York Power Rack is very versatile. It provides an additional area for clients to stand with or without assistance. It is very flexible in how clients support themselves while standing which offers a greater variety of standing exercises and movements. It also provides a safe area to perform weight training, and other bodyweight exercises such as pull-ups. York Power Rack Information

Hip/Glute Machine
The hip/glute machine is used to stimulate the glute and hamstring muscles, and helps correct postural imbalances. Individuals who use a wheelchair for daily life often develop tight hip flexors, which can hinder the ability to stand properly. The hip/glute machine allows full hip extension to be performed by the client, which counters tight hip flexors.

SCIFIT Arm Cycle
The SCIFIT Arm Cycle is used to incorporate many different aspects of a client’s workout into a short amount of time. Our trainers are able to stand a client at the cycle and allow them to pedal the bike at the same time. The combined effect of both standing and pedaling allows for proprioceptive cues to travel between the nervous system and brain. The added benefit of a cardiovascular workout also helps our clients stay fit. SCIFIT Arm Cycle Information

Total Gym 26000
The Total Gym is a gravity minimizing resistance trainer. It enables our trainers to provide a load bearing environment for the client which is beneficial in recovery. Bearing weight through the legs establishes a connection and allows for proprioceptive cues helpful in balance. Strength and balance exercises can be performed while either laying or sitting on the total gym. Total Gym 26000 Information

EZ Stand Glider
The benefits of standing for clients with paralysis are numerous. Increased circulation, maintenance of increased bone density, and a reduction of the risk of pressure sores are just a few examples. The EZ Stand Glider enables our trainers to stand a client in a controlled environment. This also increases the proprioceptive response to the nervous system we are looking to establish in order to improve a client’s balance and coordination. EZ Stand Glider Information

Spin Bike
The spin bike enables our trainers to work on active gait training as well as leg strength and coordination. The movement of the bike helps simulate the gait pattern. It also allows the client to work on a connection between the brain and legs while trying to pedal the bike. In addition, the bike can also provide a cardiovascular aspect to a client’s session. Spin Bike Information

Adductor
The adductor allows our trainers to place the client’s pelvis in a neutral position in order to concentrate on coordination and make a better connection with a client’s core muscles. By opening the legs it forces the pelvis to rotate and engage different muscle groups our trainers could not otherwise facilitate. Adductor Information

Parallel Bars
Most people with paralysis are familiar with parallel bars for doing assisted standing and stepping. We do many of these “standard” things with our parallel bars, but we also do other exercises with our clients depending on their individual needs. Our parallel bars are adjustable in height and width, so we can have our clients stand with staggered heights of hand support, use the bars to assist with kneeling, or simply provide the trainer with a different way or position to help clients do upright exercises. Parallel Bars Information

Lift Walker
The Lift Walker is a height adjustable walker with four wheels on the bottom and forearm supports on the top. The wheels allow for very easy maneuverability, but also lock in place so the walker stays put. The forearm supports allow clients to stand, do stepping exercises, or take steps who otherwise would not be able to do so with a standard walker due to lack of upper body strength. Clients can also use the Lift Walker to perform different kneeling exercises and do things like vertical crawling. Click Here to View Video | Lift Walker Information

Gait Harness System II
The GHS, with its many steering and braking features, is a very versatile tool for doing exercises in an upright position, as well as assisted walking. Clients wear a harness specifically for the walker that, when the client is standing, is designed to help keep the client’s hips in place without actually supporting their bodyweight. The harness also turns into a seat so that when the client needs a break, they can simply sit down in the harness, which will support their weight. Gait Harness System II Information

The Rifton Tram Walker
The Rifton Tram Walker has a durable frame with an electrical-driven height adjustment capacity. The walker has comfortable padded upper body support, along with a hip harness that secures the client safely into the walker. Clients are then able to practice locomotor training, as the trainer can assist from behind. With lock-in steering capabilities, the Rifton is easy to navigate, and works to provide clients with various degrees of weight bearing while practicing gait training. Rifton Tram Walker Information

LiteGait
The Adult LiteGait (LG 300 MX) is a supportive partial weight bearing system that enables clients to engage in locomotor training. This versatile piece of equipment can be used both over a treadmill or in over ground walking. The client wears a padded harness to achieve a fully upright position. Trainers are able to assist from behind if manual manipulation of the legs is needed. LiteGait Information

VibePlate
The VibePlate is a stationary vibration platform that enables clients to achieve whole body vibration. This durable structure produces vertical vibration, enhancing the effects of gravity on the body by increasing its intensity. The benefits of the vibe plate for our clients range from positive bone density effects, improved circulation, increased sensation, and stimulated muscles. VibePlate Information

Galileo Advanced
The Galileo Advanced (with optional Wobbel function) is a vibration platform that provides a powerful neuromuscular effect on the body. With a high oscillating frequency capacity, the Galileo Advanced stimulates stretch reflexes, leading to muscle contractions, bone density increases, improved circulation, reductions in spasms, and heightened sensation. Various intensities can easily be selected for different comfort levels. The compact size of the Galileo Advanced enables trainers to be able to place it on the floor, on the total gym, or on a table. The Wobbel function randomly alters the intensity of vibration during a bout, thus challenging a client’s balance. Galileo Advanced Information

Galileo Mano Dumbbell
The Galileo Mano Dumbbell is a device with an oscillating handle capable of reaching high frequencies to stimulate the upper body musculature. It can be used to help restore a degree of hand feeling and strength, as well as reduce tone. Trainers utilize grip gloves to securely fasten a client’s hand to the handle, ensuring a firm connection. Galileo Mano Dumbbell Information

MOTOmed with RehaMove
The MOTOmed (Viva 2) is a motorized therapy device that is designed to provide clients with safe exercise movements. Both lower body and upper body cycling is available. The client is able to remain in their wheelchair while their legs or arms are attached and secured to the MOTOmed. Various options are available including passive cycling to maintain range of motion, as well as motor assisted cycling or active resisted cycling to improve neuromuscular strength. The MOTOmed has the capacity to be connected to the RehaMove 2, turning it into an FES (functional electrical stimulation) machine. The RehaMove has two channels with four leads each, thus having an overall capacity to stimulate eight muscles during a cycling session. The RehaMove can also be used independent of the MOTOmed, providing electrical stimulation to clients doing various movements throughout the gym. MOTOmed Information | RehaMove Information
