exercise for paraplegics

HI!

Im looking for as many ways to exercise. I am a T4 paraplegic and have been in a wheelchair for 14 years. I am totally indpendent and quite healthy but dont exercise much and want to change that.

Im particularly looking at ways to exercise my abs since i dont have any muscle there. What are the possibilities?

thanking you!

I suggest that you consult an occupational therapist and a physio therapist in this regard. They will be able to evaluate your possibilities and options.
