    Gym accidents: Seated Dip Machine


    From slips, trips and falls on treadmills to sprains and strains from over-worked muscle groups, the gym is brimming with potential sport-related injuries and conditions. The key to avoid accidents in the gym is to undertake a full induction, ask for a personal training plan and know your body’s capabilities.

    Seated Dip Machine: The lowdown

    The seated dip machine involves lifting weights by pushing handles slowly down, until you reach full arm extension. You are then required to slowly and steadily return to your original position, with your arm bent at the elbow.

    Due to the muscle groups worked by the seated dip machine – the triceps, shoulders and chest –  common injuries are typically inflammation or rupture of the triceps tendon, and strains and strains to the shoulders and chest area. Some users experience shoulder dislocation or spine injuries if poor technique is adopted.

    Who is to blame for your accident at the gym?

    When you visit the gym, the facility has as legal responsibility to ensure your health and safety. You have a right to be adequately inducted and know how to correctly use all equipment on offer, in a safe and clean environment.

    If you sustain an injury due to insufficient guidance or poor gym maintenance, it may be that your gym has failed in their legal obligation to guarantee your well-being and as such could be held liable for any harm or difficulties you have experienced.
