StandingMonday, December 18, we went to physical therapy and this time we brought the camera. We've been going to therapy once a week and this was our third week. My insurance for physical therapy visits expired in October. I'll be able to start up with insurance again in January 2007. To help cover the gap a non-profit fund called S.U.P.E.R.M.A.N. has been created to assist folks like myself so we can continue the needed therapy.

This was my third visit on this plan. I've included a couple of videos.

One of these demonstrates an improvement in my standing ability. In an earlier article I showed video of me standing at my daughter's wedding in August. I think if you compare this video to that you will agree that standing is less of a struggle for me now. 

In an effort to help build the strength in my thighs to increase the stability of my knees I was introduced to a new exercise. It required transferring to a machine where I lay on my back and must use my legs to push my body on a sliding mechanism. Getting to the machine was interesting but no too difficult.

The second video shows the last few reps of my second 20 rep set. With the fatigue caused by the new exercise I did not have a tremendous walk but still got 21 feet or so with the walker.
