Vertical Butterfly or "Peck Deck"
This Stand Alone Vertical Butterfly or âPeck Deckâ is designed so that all you have to do is back your wheelchair up to it to begin your work-out. This unit is fantastic for the shoulder and chest muscles. Because it does not require any hand holds, it is an excellent machine for Quads.

A 150 pound combo weight stack in 5 and 10 pound units is also available. Selection of desired weight is accomplished by simply moving one pin for the desired weight.
