Walk Again Appeal
Can you help us raise £35,000?
Currently on loan to us here at the centre is The Anti-Gravity Treadmill (AGT)
The AGT provides partial weight-bearing pain-free exercise. It can improve balance, gait, stride length and range of motion.It helps reduce falls and gives clients greater confidence in their daily activities. The centre is the only place in Cornwall currently housing this piece of equipment.
We have only had this piece of equipment at the centre for a matter of weeks but the response from our clients has been incredible. There have been tears of joy and sheer excitement at the feeling of running or walking for the first time in years.
David Neal who suffered a Stroke. "Before my stroke, I played sport and had been fit. The treadmill let me run for the first time in five years. It gave me confidence to do things I couldn’t before."
We would absolutely love to keep this amazing equipment in Cornwall as we know what a difference it will make to so many lives. However, we desperately need some financial help as the machine costs £35,000.
