>> NEW Equipment- stability ball, Soloflex Whole Body Vibration Board, barbells, stretch cords. For the Pool- sets of aqua barbells, belts, and resistance runners.
>>AED – You will soon notice a new addition on the wall in the Gym. We have wanted to have this special new equipment and now that we have it, I hope we NEVER use it! What?!?! An AED is an automated external defibrillator (AED), a lightweight, portable device that delivers an electric shock through the chest to the heart. The shock can potentially stop an irregular heart beat (arrhythmia) and allow a normal rhythm to resume following sudden cardiac arrest. According to the American Heart Association,AEDs make it possible for more people to respond to a medical emergency where defibrillation is required. Because AEDs are portable, they can be used by nonmedical people. They can be made part of emergency response programs that also include rapid use of 9-1-1 and prompt delivery of cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). In case of emergency at the Wellness Center, be sure to notify the staff on duty.
>> Do you or your spouse need medical attention, chronic care management, or physical therapy? Or do you simply want a check-up, but concerned with leaving the community?
