    About the LRT


    Designed for all levels, the Limbalance Resistance Trainer (Pat.Pend) affixes weight resistance to the arm to create strong and stable shoulders, and can be used to address the common muscle misalignment and postural problems experienced when living with one hand.

    The LRT also allows the user to attach weight to the lowest part of the arm to activate hard to reach muscles in your bicep and tricep. 

    The LRT is made to measure, and offers elasticated compression around the arm.

    The LRT features two connector loops positioned at the end of the arm that fixes our real leather lifting strap in place. Attached to the leather lifting strap is a strong stainless steel carabiner to connect to your weight system.

    The LRT:

    - Sets up in seconds
    - Packs light, goes anywhere
    - Is hand washable

    Where can it be used?

    It can be used at home with resistance bands, or connect to a dual pulley cables at the gym for a more robust workout.

    Can I buy LRT's for my gym or health club?

    Yes! The LRT is a great way to make your gym more inclusive and welcoming for all types of people.

    We can provide your space with a version of each LRT which you can show to interested members. Your member can then supply their size information to order their own LRT.

    Your gym can choose to buy the LRT for the member at a reduced price or the member can purchase it and receive a discount if you're already a stockist of our products. Your gym can also make a commission for every sale made.

    Increse Recruitment and Retentenion

    We so often hear from people with an upper limb difference that they downgrade gym memberships, simply because most of the kit available isn't suitable for them. Our low cost fitness products are a win-win, as not only can they help you retain and recruit new members, but they will also result in your member having a more effective exercise experience.

    We can also provide your staff with online access to science based fitness workouts so they can better support your members with an upper limb difference, particularly when using weights for the first time. Learn more about working with us here.
