Patients with mobility issues can now exercise their arms, wrists and shoulders while in bed instead of having to be moved to the gym in the Physiotherapy Department. A new, mobile arm ergometer unit, purchased through a Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE grant, is easily transported to a patient’s bedside for required cardiovascular strengthening and conditioning, increasing accessibility for these patients.
Volunteers will deliver the sealed email message within 24 hours of receiving it. Emails received on weekends and holidays will be delivered the next business day. Unfortunately, we cannot deliver email messages after a patient has been discharged from the Health Sciences Centre and gone home.
