Do what you enjoy: Really depends on the size of the space and what you like. There are treadmills, stair climbers and elliptical trainers that can fit in small spaces. Otherwise the P90X program will give great results as long as you are healthy enough to do the program. Also consider a kettle bell work out, gives great cardiovascular and strength results. I would consider a yoga mat and program at least 2x.Week.

Do baby exercise classes help with physical development?

No: They're fun, and they'll give you and your baby a nice opportunity to meet people and get out a bit. But no, i don't think there's any evidence that these kinds of classes actually help with development.

How would you perform a wheelchair transfer using a pivot?

Stand-pivot: Stand-pivot transfers are most commonly used when the person has one-sided weakness as would be the case after a stroke. The person should be seated with the knees lower than the hips and the heels back somewhat behind the knees. From this position the person is helped to standing placing the weight on the strong side, pivots, and lowers slowly on the wheelchair (with or without assistance).

How would someone perform a wheelchair transfer using a scoot?
1 doctor answer • 2 doctors weighed in

Wheelchair transfers: For non ambulatory people, using a slide board between chair and ? Allows the person to scoot the buttock across the board and onto the next area. Typically we go from a higher to lower site, allowing gravity to assist the scoot. If no board is used, then this is a swing transfer, assuming feet are not used for a stand pivot.

How to get out of this exercise/starvation mode without gaining much weight?
2 doctor answers • 5 doctors weighed in

Lower intensity: To maintain weight, get your resting metabolism rate tested. It tells you how many calories you need to maintain your weight. Exercise is good but for many, intense exercise causes hunger followed by too much food. Do more fat burning lower intensity exercise and weight training with lower weights but more repetitions to help maintain weight and muscle mass. Dont forget to drink water.
