For those with physical disabilities who prefer to work out in the fitness center environment, the Fractal Machine would be a choice piece of equipment. Similar to the technology behind the stationary road bike attachment, this apparatus applies resistance to a wheelchair's tires.

The mechanism can be easily adjusted to fit most wheel sizes, allowing people to train in the comfort of their chosen chairs. You roll back into it and lock the guard around the perimeter, adjusting it for both fit and level of friction.

Once you're set up with Wilmer Montiel's invention, you can speed away in one spot. The Fractal Machine is a great way to improve endurance and strength without leaving the building, preparing you for a range of sports and more demanding days.
