If you are looking for a video, Jodi Stolove has several that are excellent: http://www.chairdancing.com/

If you're looking to make your own program, do a google search for "wheelchair exercise" or "wheelchair exercises", and you'll find tons of ideas. Some sites even have demo pics too.

Many pools and wellness centers offer "water aerobics", which are often specifically for people who are older or may have disabilities.

Hi, I have a bicycle exerciser that is just the pedals on a base that you sit in a chair and use, you can also do arm exercises with it.

My advice is the same as the "guest post by Kayla"...water aerobics! We have a Health & Fitness Center here in town that offers an Arthritis Movements class in a therapy pool (warmer than a lap pool) and also a Water Aerobics class.

They even have a chair on wheels that patients can sit on, be wheeled down into the water and do the classes that way.

God Bless,
