What are the benefits of the
Use of the S-Press early in a person’s rehabilitation will enable a reduction in the destructive muscle de-conditioning that can occur when someone is admitted to hospital.
Progressive resistance exercise for even the frailest of individuals
Simple progressive resistance exercise (PRE) is known to increase muscle strength in even the frailest individuals and researchers suggest that PRE should be used more in hospitals to prevent deconditioning and improve outcomes. Other than the S-Press, there is very limited easy and safe to use PRE equipment available for use in hospitals.
3 - 23kg of therapeutic level resistance across 6 easily changeable levels.
Can be used on the bed or in a chair or wheelchair.
Inclusive and accessible to all patients in need of leg strengthening as part of their physiotherapy programme.
Safe, effective, inclusive design.
Patient centred design following patient and public involvement, clinical focus groups. and tested on NHS wards, with multiple and diverse conditions treated.

Accelerate physical recovery from illness & injury
The S-Press will help prevent the damaging hospital-acquired deconditioning process, speed up patients’ physical recovery back to their baseline level, shorten their length of stay in the hospital, reduce the need for Intermediate Care, and high-level transfer equipment, and lower the level of social care input required and reduce delayed discharges.
