Keeping active in winter

It’s not always easy to stay active in the cooler months, but winter time is precisely when we should keep moving. Regular exercise is good for us. It helps improve circulation, eases aching joints and relieves cold and numb legs and feet. It can also help with mobility and balance so it’s easier to get around — and it’s good for mental wellbeing too.

Even on the dullest day, home exercise equipment lets you stay active without having to brave the harsh elements. And the good news is, all exercise equipment at Mobility Centre Store is compact, easy-to-use and very affordable – so there’s no excuse not to keep active this winter. Just have a chat with your doctor or other healthcare professional first.

Pedal Exerciser

The pedal exerciser is a versatile strength-building tool that can be used on tabletops for arm workouts, or on the floor to exercise your legs. It features a tension control knob that allows for a range of resistance settings, so it’s ideal for progressive exercise programmes.

Shoulder Pulley

This simple, inexpensive device can help improve your range of shoulder movement and coordination. The shoulder pulley is quick to set up and can be used while seated or standing.
