The cost of doing
nothing

The NHS is struggling to manage the extremely high demand set on it currently. This is causing huge problems with hospital and patient flow, and the system is at breaking point in many NHS Trusts.  Complex patients, slow physical recovery causing delays in discharge, have a huge part to play in this crisis and mounting costs to the NHS.

The first of it's kind

A unique therapeutic device to strengthen the whole leg

The S-Press was invented by a physiotherapist, so that she and her colleagues worldwide could give those patients most at risk of a poor outcome the opportunity of a good outcome and a great quality of life.

1.

Portable

Weighing just 8kg, the S-Press is portable and easy to store so you can use it anywhere, anytime.

2.

Pressure-relieving surfaces

Fully pressure relieving on heel area, adjustable ankle position and padded leg rest for compliance with tissue viability policy.

3.

Bi-directional

The unique combination of leg press and hamstring curl allows all the muscles in the leg to be strengthened therapeutically and effectively.
Jennifer Turner

25+ years experience in rehabilitation and injury recovery

The S-Press was designed by a physiotherapist with 27 years NHS rehabilitation experience, frustrated by the lack of effective equipment available to help her patients. Its aim is to enable access to important, early, progressive resistance exercise, to work and target the leg muscles involved with sit to stand, transfers and walking, the key elements needed for safe discharge home.

Testimonials

“I can see the potential to empower the patient, their family and other staff groups to assist in rehabilitation delivery whilst enabling greater autonomy of exercise outside of structured rehabilitation sessions.”

“It could also help me to reach the gold standard of service that I personally and my directorate/trust strive to achieve by increasing the amount of times patients receive therapy and  ultimately provide better outcomes for patients.”

Melissa Cloke

"Congratulations Jennifer and thank you from all of us at Versus Arthritis on behalf of all the people with Arthritis and their families who will benefit directly from the S-Press!"
