The Wunda Chair is a Pilates apparatus which is used in Bend + Mend’s Pilates Group Physio Sessions. The pedal on the chair has a spring resistance which is used to challenge patient’s strength and stability. Depending on the exercise you can use both heavy and light springs to increase the difficulty. This short clip demonstrates a few exercises done standing on the ground and then a few standing up on the chair seat. I have also demonstrated some abdominal exercises with your hands on the seat and feet on the pedal. Whilst the Wunda chair looks quite simple, it can be very versatile. There are lots of different exercises we can prescribe on the Wunda chair, adding some great variability to your routine.
