The benefits of cycling are even greater for individuals who are physically impaired to overcome common issues such as being overweight due to lack of activities such as exercise. The muscle wastage and improper blood circulation due to extensive use of a wheel chair can both be avoided with this active sport. The BerkelBike gives people who are physically impaired the opportunity to practice this activity.

 

Using the BerkelBike helps rehabilitate and keeps the muscles stronger and fitter then a handcycle. By combining using both the legs and the arms to move it provides support to both muscle groups. Often the legs can’t take all the weight and need a little boost. Here is where the BerkelBike comes in, it uses an arm connection to help support the legs allowing enough power to move. Giving it a greater advantage over a handcycle.
