hello,welcome to health care magic, you mentioned that your husband has muscular atrophy but you have not explained about the cause of atrophy.kindly explain in detail about your husband"s problem and current condition.
in his case good exercise programme will help in maintaing the muscle power and range of motion of joints.It will improve his walking too.
i would advise he should consult a good physiotherapist first.Later he can join a gym for the maintenance of muscle power and length..
