Fitting the training tubes from the Training kit to a GH3 or GH3+ ceiling hoist locked in position using the Positioning lock gives patients the opportunity to train their arms, shoulders and legs while lying in bed. The combination of the ceiling hoist and the training tubes makes it possible to set up a kind of fitness centre in the patient’s room.
Different tubes can be selected to put together customised workouts including both strength and endurance exercises for upper and lower body. It is also possible to use the equipment for supportive training, lifting the pelvis in the bed or supporting the upper body during stomach exercises.
Maintaining the patient’s functional capabilities during a period of hospitalisation will help minimise different risks typically associated with long-term bed rest. It will also help the staff because patients are better able to help themselves, which reduces the amount of care they require.
