We recommend that you consult with a contractor to determine best mounting options for your walls.

• Is the Fuse Ladder safe for people with shoulder/arm/upper back injuries?
Yes. While the ladder is great for working your arms, back, and shoulders, ladder workouts incorporate a range of moves to deliver a full-body workout, so there are plenty of exercise options for those who feel they should avoid certain areas or movements. The Fuse Ladder can be a safe and effective way to create or maintain a workout regimen while you manage injuries and other short term or chronic issues that limit only certain aspects of your capabilities. The ladder is also infinitely adjustable, so there are several options available to challenge a full range of capabilities with each exercise, such as reducing spring resistance or eliminating springs entirely from arm work to make it accessible for those with arm injuries or weakness.
