Check out the Chair Exercise Team. Lots of resources provided. Also member, JOANBURNELL, has great examples of different chair exercises. They are in her blogs. Not all with weights. Consider this your invitation to join us on the Chair Exercise team. You will get your 'moneys worth'. lol

Wii is great. There are also hand cycles which can cost a bit not great for those of us on disability, pool exercises. Are you 100 % w/c bound? I will check you tube for you too. I will also check with friend who is w/c bound I know he does cardio. Sometimes if you type in exercises for ... (your condition) lots of videos and suggestions come up. Some organizatations even send out exercise videos for free. I like free. I received two workout videos from MS for free one from a drug company and the other one from I don't remember where???
Congratulations to you for coming back!

I use the Wii sports for exercise and I also use chair exercises I found on youtube.

It sure does limit us in wheelchairs but I try to adapt other exercises to what I can do - if they are marching with legs I raise my arms instead, or if they are doing leg lifts I make circles with my arms and so on.
