You can try weightlifting with kettlebells and core workouts. Click on the excercises for all the muscles you want to train. Good luck :)

Try looking for a wheelchair fencing. Will.keep.your body and mind.occupied or.therapeutic horseback riding...a lot more workout than you may think. Also may want to look into hand bikes or swimming. Winter time sking is fun too. Other than organize para sports Not knowing your full condition would make it hard to sugest a specific workout. Generaly any of the upper body weighs and machines should be fine.
