Service spotlight: MS occupational therapy

“I haven’t been able to use my exercise bike, until my MS Occupational Therapist modified my bike to allow me to exercise safely again," Michael said.

Michael was previously unable to use his exercise bike for any workouts due to his foot not being able to fit securely on the pedal. With the help of his MS Occupational Therapist, they were able to custom-build a new footplate with a 3D printer, which provided a specialised, supportive footplate for Michael to resume exercising using his bike.

“I have always been an active person and enjoyed exercising. For a very long time I’ve been unable to use my exercise bike and despite many different ideas and consults, a solution couldn’t be found."

"After consulting with my MS Occupational Therapist, engaging with the right supports and a few minor adjustments, I am now able to safely and effectively participate in an activity which I thought I wouldn’t be able to do. It’s been a game changer,” Michael said.
