Individuals of all physical capabilities have the ability to engage in a meaningful fitness program at Madonna ProActive. Madonna ProActive offers a variety of adaptive equipment designed to allow all members to participate in a safe and appropriate workout. Specialized adapted equipment is suitable for individuals with a wide range of fitness abilities. The offering of specialized equipment is valuable for members who have physical limitations where it may prove to be more difficult to use traditional fitness equipment. This includes; arthritis, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injuries, or those who have suffered a stroke. In addition, individuals who have other conditions that may limit their mobility or workout would benefit from adaptive equipment.
Adaptive Training Program:
A specialized personal trainer can provide tailored training to foster a partially-independent, or fully-independent exercise program. This is accomplished through the use of special techniques and adaptive equipment, in Madonna ProActive’s Adaptive Training Program. Physical and occupational therapists are available on a consultative basis to assist in the development of appropriate programming for clients with unique needs.
The Adaptive Training Program begins with a pre-evaluation, a select amount of one-on-one sessions, followed by transferring into an Adaptive Training Class (optional). The purpose of the one-on-one sessions is to foster as much independence as appropriate for the client. The Adaptive Training Classes are available for individuals to attend and perform their established program on an on-going basis. The classes provide a monitored setting allowing for additional guidance when needed. Adaptive Training Classes are only for those who have completed the Adaptive Training Program.
Madonna ProActive members may request these services at no additional charge.
Collaborative work between multiple departments across Madonna’s hospital system aims to break barriers clients face when trying to exercise on traditional equipment. Emerging equipment from Madonna’s Institute for Rehabilitation Sciences and Engineering is available for use at Madonna ProActive.
