Rocky Bay referred a young man, who in his mid-twenties sustained a spinal cord injury in a swimming accident to WA Charity Direct. The referral was for a Motomed Leg Movement Therapy system which is specially designed to assist individuals who have movement difficulties. The Motomed System has a specialised leg cycle which helps to reduce spasms and moves the legs to promote flexibility in the joints, muscles & surrounding soft tissues. The use of the therapy system can also contribute to reducing the risk of blood clots.
The convenience of having a system set up in the home will help with the Recipient’s goal of maintaining his health and independence.
