FIT & HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
Our mission is to enable disabled people to remain fit and healthy. It is often a challenge to keep the body in good condition. for people living with disabilities and neurological disorders, the fitness of the body can decrease rapidly and important muscles become inactive and are often neglected. This causes the body to become weaker and can result in an increased risk of negative health complications.
It can be difficult for disabled individuals to keep their bodies fit and healthy. Often people with spinal cord injuries or neurological disorders cannot move certain limbs or muscle groups. We work with individuals and healthcare professionals on a one to one basis to provide innovative and cutting edge assistive technology to allow people living with disabilities the very best opportunities to maintain healthy lifestyles and longevity.
Active Linx prides itself on its 20 years experience in providing Assistive Technology solutions to people living with disabilities, its range of innovative and cutting edge equipment and our one to one consultative service. People are important to us and helping to change lives for the better is what drives us. See our key products below:

Move Paralysed Muscles
Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) is an innovation in the field of muscle stimulation, which allows people with a complete transverse lesion and paralysed muscles to move again. It can be combined with a BerkelBike or EasyLegs.
FES technology can allow spinal cord injury (SCI) patients to actively cycle using their own leg muscles. By actively training the paralysed legs, common problems can be prevented. These include obesity, poor blood pressure and the formation of pressure ulcers.
Active standing provides lower body range of motion and upper body strengthening. Unlike passive standers, users move the handles with their arms (or a caregiver can assist) which creates a reciprocal movement in the legs allowing full leg extension while standing.
This advanced stander enhances the medical benefits of standing and keeps the body in shape positively affecting health.
