Redcord Suspension Training for Parkinson’s Disease

If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, there is hope. Redcord Suspension training can greatly improve the rehabilitation process and help you to regain the quality of life that you once had.

  • Improves stability and helps with gait coaching
  • Promotes reinforcement of key muscle groups
  • Supports an active lifestyle, keeping you focused on a positive routine

The gear used during training is a combination of straps that are anchored to a wall, beam, or another piece of equipment; and this is how resistance is provided. Because of this, suspension training is completely scalable. Depending on where your feet are placed, the movements used during training can become more or less difficult just by a change in positioning, so you can train according to your
