York Hospital Gets New Treadmills from Energise Gym
9:13pm 7th February 2013
Physiotherapy patients at York Hospital will soon be up and running with the help of two extra treadmills donated by Energise Gym based at Cornlands Road.
The machines have been donated as a result of Energise updating their equipment and will be used within the main physiotherapy gymnasium. They will assist in the rehabilitation of patients who have lower limb conditions including arthritis, and patients with sporting injuries.
Principal therapist, Mike Lee, said: “It’s fantastic to have two new modern treadmills for our group rehabilitation sessions. We work in partnership with Energise as they run classes that many of our patients attend so it’s great to provide patients with the same high tech equipment. It also means that we are making the most of our joint resources so it’s much more cost effective.”
Energise manager, Paul Bickle, said: “Many of the hospital’s patients attend our community classes and inclusive facilities to improve their conditions, so we are in regular contact with the physiotherapy department about our classes and facilities. This is where we got the idea to provide some of the same modern equipment for the hospital. Our joint mission is to encourage people to become healthier and prevent them developing chronic conditions.”
