Donated hand cycle benefits Tilton vets
Walter, the owner of nhcars.net, a used car dealership in Hooksett, bought the machine used for rehabilitation so he could donate it to the New Hampshire Veterans Home.
“I knew it was a good deal,” he said. “But the price doesn’t matter so much. I thought of the veterans home when I saw it. Anything I can do to help these guys is worth it.
“If it wasn’t for the vets, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the freedoms we have.”
It is therapeutic because it allows the home’s residents to get a full workout without the need of their legs, an important feature for many older veterans who have limited or no use of their lower limbs.
“Our slogan is, ‘Vets helping vets,’” Schwendeman said. “This machine can add a couple of years to a veteran’s life.”
