The BerkelBike Pro is a combination of a handbike and a recumbent tricycle. It combines arm and the leg movements to power the tricycle; the arm pieces are connected through a chain to the leg parts. If you move the handles, the foot pedals move as well.

  • HOW DOES A BERKELBIKE PRO WORK?

     

    The leg movement is supported by the strength in the arms and shoulders. This allows the legs to move in a full circle, even if they have lost a significant amount of strength and coordination. The effort is distributed evenly over all the limbs; this means tired body parts can rest.

    Cycling with the BerkelBike is considered a full body training and focusses on both the well-functioning body parts and those with reduced function. Additionally, in the case of a transverse lesion or another neurological condition, the tricycle can be combined with electrical stimulation to ensure that legs with little or no function will also be trained.
