New Gym Equipment Donated

Ability Bow has been donated an FES Bike

Functional electrical stimulation is a rehab technique which applies an electrical current to paralysed or weakened muscles. FES is used to stimulate the lower motor neurons that connect the spinal cord to your muscles, and evokes patterned movement of the legs or the arms. FES therefore enables your muscles to be exercised, even if you’ve lost some or all voluntary control of them.

Protecting Our Service

In November 2016 we hit a funding crisis .

We want this to be temporary and are raising awareness through our appeal to try and regain our unique long term rehab service.
