The YMCA of Greenwich is excited to announce that they have installed a MOTOmed movement trainer for members with disabilities. The YMCA was able to purchase the machine as the result of a grant from the Abilis Foundation.

Prior to installation at the YMCA, the only publically available machine of this kind was located at Greenwich High School and could only be used by individuals until the age of 21. An estimated 2,500 Greenwich residents could benefit from using the MOTOmed and until now, were unable to access one affordably.

“These machines cost thousands of dollars, and therapy sessions at private clinics are simply too expensive. We are thankful to the Abilis Foundation for enabling us to provide this essential piece of equipment for our members and the Greenwich community” said CEO Ed Philipp.
