State-of-the-art gym will boost physiotherapy and capabilities following a range of conditions
London Bridge Hospital has continued its dedication to providing the latest equipment for patients by investing £40,000 in brand-new equipment for the physiotherapy gymnasium. The new additions from the Technogym range of highly-specialist equipment, will facilitate patient rehabilitation and accelerate patient recovery.
The Physiotherapy Department treat multiple conditions and injuries ranging from ACL reconstruction and highly complex spinal surgery, to a common sprained ankle and work-related aches and pains.
Commenting on the gym’s upgrade, Shalini Clark, Physiotherapy Manager, said: “The gym space provides the ideal environment for the progressive rehabilitation of sports-specific injuries, and the new equipment ensures that our therapists can push more physically active patients to return to their previously high level of competitive fitness.”
The new equipment consists of:
- Elliptical cross trainer
- Ercolina cable machine
- Leg press machine
- Leg curl machine
- Leg extension machine
- Recline and upright static bike
- Lat pull down machine
- Upgraded plyometric and balance equipment
Following this latest investment, the gym can now be fully utilised for cardiac rehabilitation, as well as for patients with breathing pattern dysfunction.
