    Gym accidents: Arm Curl Machine


    Whether you are regularly at the gym or just every so often for mild use, you are always at risk of sustaining an injury during your work out.

    From misuse of a machine, or something as common as slips, trips and falls while moving around the gym floor, gym-related accidents, leading to sport injuries, can and do happen.

    Between 2007 and 2010, injuries at gyms and when using gym equipment was up 45 per cent. With the use of gyms rising as we become more aware of our health needs, this figure looks set to continue increasing, as more people choose to become gym members.

    The arm curl machine

    The arm curl machine is a machine used primarily to train and strengthen the bicep muscles in the arm. As the bicep is arguably the most used upper body muscle, many see it as important to get this muscle as strong as possible by using the arm curl machine.

    With the arm curl machine allowing you to adopt different weights and resistance, sustaining a gym-related injury while using this machine could be very easy. Like many types of injury at the gym, if you sustain your injury while using equipment like the arm curl machine, you may not be at fault for the harm you have suffered.

    Who is responsible for your gym-related accident?

    Gyms have a legal obligation for your health, well-being and safety while you use their facilities, and are normally required to provide you with a full induction showing you how to safely use each piece of equipment. If you haven’t been given the proper instruction on the use of equipment, then the gym may be liable for your injury.
