Wall bars or gymnastics ladder, also known as stall bars in USA and Swedish wall in several countries was invented at the beginning of the 19th century by a Swedish physical therapist and teacher Dr. Pehr Henrik Ling. Great variety of exercises on it exists, which could be further expended using various attachments.
The wall bars shown are made of ash and finished with water based polyurethane. Overall dimensions are 240cm tall and 65 cm wide. The bars have standard oval 3×4 cm cross section and spaced 18 cm apart. Spacing between top 2-nd and 3-rd bars is larger (36 cm) to relieve stress on the wrists when hanging with the back to the wall. There are extra mortises in the vertical rails (plugged and not seen on the picture) such that another bar could be added in between. Aluminum brackets that attach the vertical rails to the wall have elongated slots, which allow the entire weight to rest on the floor (not hang on the wall). The feet are adjustable.
The attachment is used for pull-up, push-up or leg lift exercises. Metal hooks rotate such that it can be reversed in either position.
Thank you for looking.
