Danny Hall writes in the Wilts and Gloucesteshire on Oct.26, 2011 about the SWINDON speedway legend Leigh Adams who was checked in to the Project Walk Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Clinic in California on January 1. Adams, in the wake of the off road motor cycle crash on June 7, is attempting get his life back on track and out of a wheelchair.
Adams said to Graham Mack of BBC Wiltshire, in his first major radio interview since the accident “It is an eight-week spin in California. We’ve heard great things about the place and we are going to throw everything at it.”
Inspired by former Danish speedway world champion Eric Gundersen who has learnt to walk again following a race crash. Adams said, “Eric is unbelievable – an inspiration,” said Adams. “He was quadriplegic so quite a lot worse than me.
The Project Walk clinic has also helped an Australian snowboarder recover to walk again
Adams said that he now has good movement in his left leg and the right leg is improving.
The LegTutor will be of great assistance to Leigh Adams in his recovery from the crash as it improves functional outcomes in physical rehabilitation.
The LegTutor™ system has been developed to allow for functional rehabilitation of the lower extremity including the hip, knee and ankle. The ArmTutor improves functional movement ability of the shoulder, elbow and wrist while the HandTutor is used in hand therapy. The LegTutor™ rehabilitation concept is based on performing controlled multijoint and isolated joint exercise rehabilitation practice at a patient customized level with real time accurate feedback on the patient’s performance. The exercises are designed in the form of challenging games that are suitable for SCI, brain injury including Stroke and CP as well as a wide variety of neurological and orthopedic injury and disease.
The games challenge the patient to perform the exercise task to their best ability and to continue exercise practice.
The LegTutor™ allows for isolated and a combination of knee and three directional hip treatment. The system provides detailed exercise performance instructions and precise feedback on the patients exercise performance. Controlled exercise of multi joints within the normal movement pattern prevents the development of undesired and compensatory joint movement and ensures better performance of functional tasks.
