CYCLE DESPITE DISABILITY

BERKELBIKE

Why consider a BerkelBike?

 

It can be difficult for disabled individuals  to keep their bodies fit and healthy. Often people with spinal cord injuries or neurological disorders cannot move certain limbs or muscle groups. The BerkelBike can train these muscles again and help to keep the riders fit through cycling.

The BerkelBike is combination of a handbike and a tricycle bike.  The combined arm and leg propulsion make it possible for people with various disorders such as spinal cord injury, Parkinsons, MS and Cerebral Palsy to cycle with weak or even paralysed legs. This way the BerkelBike can prevent problems caused by disuse of muscles and lack of exercise.

BerkelBike Pro

 

Two models are available, a version with a fixed recumbent frame - BerkelBike Pro and a version that can be linked to a wheelchair - BerkelBike Connect. There is also a home trainer version to train at home - the BerkelBike Fitness. As well as being used outdoors, the Pro and Connect can be used indoors set up on an indoor trainer making it so versatile to your needs.

In addition we have a functional electrical stimulator which stimulate nerves of paralysed muscles through current pulses.  As a result the muscles are activated making it possible to cycle with completely paralysed legs - no kidding!

BERKELBIKE PRO

EasyLegs Pro

 

The EasyLegs Pro is a stable and lightweight tricycle.  Because of its excellent road performance it is suitable for recommended for use with conditions of instability or half sided paralysis such as following a stroke. 

Without regular exercise you can quickly lose strength and condition - cycling with the EasyLegs Pro keeps your body fit and in good condition. Unique to this cycle is that it can be fully adapted to your posture, size and disability.The seat angle can be adjusted so that you will sit comfortably, even with little stability in the hips.

Electrical Pedal Assistance

Both the BerkelBike Pro and EasyLegs Pro cycles can be fitted with an optional electrical pedal assistance system.  This can be invaluable to people with a reduced leg function and is particularly useful when one of the two legs is hardly functioning anymore. 

Indoor Training

If the weather is stopping you going for a ride, the indoor trainer solves this problem.  In fact indoor training is growing in popularity with able bodied cyclists too.  The BerkelBike Pro and EasyLegs Pro can be transformed into a state of the art bike trainer which will let you cycle at home. There are no cables, the wheels of the bike are simply placed in the home trainer and can be used in conjunction with cycling software and a tablet or TV screen  - allowing you to cycle virtual routes around the world - without even leaving your home.

Transform your wheelchair into a tricycle

The greatest advantage of EasyLegs Connect, compared to the EasyLegs Pro, is that you arrive at your destination sitting in your own wheelchair.

When using the optional electric pedal support, it offers the same comfort and ease of use as a conventional scooter, with no disadvantages like cold legs and the decrease of condition by sitting completely immobile.

The EasyLegs Connect with electric pedal support can also be used by people with reduced leg function. Even if you cannot move your legs in a complete circle, the pedal support helps you wherever you need it. In this way, it helps to maintain the strength in your legs and to keep up your fitness.
