    re: Exercises for a paralysis patient

    can you write in detail about the patient's condition, about his gate pattern and about his muscle strength?

    Right, as Umerphysio says, "paralysis" is a big word and not sepcific enough for comments.
    Also, what do you mean by "comfortable"?

    So, it would be best if you could give a detailed history (including previous Physio input and maybe explanation why this is not sufficient)/ diagnosis/ specific findings/ specific goals.

    Generally, there is an excellent website with Physio exercises for spinal patients from Australia,
    PhysiotherapyExercises.com,
    but please don't forget, that exercise prescription is a carefully assessed process and spinal clients can rather easily do too much/ or the wrong exercising and will suffer enormously.
