A machine that will help improve the lives of patients who have had surgery and then need physiotherapy has been given to Broomfield Hospital.
The leg press machine, which costs £3,295, works the lower body of a patient with the option of adjusting weights to match their strength. It was donated by The Friends of Broomfield.
Alex Bailess, advanced amputee physiotherapist, said: “We’ll be using this equipment to help a range of patients, including those who have had lower limb surgery and amputees.
“We are very grateful to the Friends at Broomfield Hospital and know the patients that it will help rehabilitate are extremely thankful as well.”
