Wheelchair Accessible Scales now at Steps!

Wheelchair Accessible Scales now at Steps!

One of the main barriers for people with disabilities being able to weigh themselves is finding accessible scales. Many people are advised to go their local vet to weigh themselves or worse yet have not been weighed in years. There is significant evidence that wheelchair users burn fewer calories, and are at risk of weight gain and other adverse health outcomes such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Weighing yourself regularly is a valuable tool to monitor your health and well-being and to know if your current diet and exercise regime is working for you. Steps now have wheelchair accessible scales suitable for any manual wheelchair.  For more information give us a call and our friendly Exercise Physiologist Kirsty can help!
