Cycling with arms & legs in your own comfort
The BerkelBike Fitness was designed for the use at home. Like other BerkelBike models, it offers you the possibility to train legs and arms simultaneously. The mechanism is made in such a way that the arms and legs are connected as one, which enables you to support your legs with your arms, as well as the other way around.
This stationary trainer can also be used in combination with Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES). When equipped with the FES-System, paralysed legs can also be involved in the training. In that way, the BerkelBike Fitness offers you a full body workout, even when you suffer from the consequences of a spinal cord injury.
You can use the BerkelBike Fitness sitting on a normal chair or in your own wheelchair. The pedals can be equipped with an optional calf support if your legs need extra stabilisation. There are eight different levels of resistance, and you can track time, distance, and calories burned to monitor your training with the integrated display. It’s the most straightforward BerkelBike, and the most affordable option to cycle with FES.
Strengths of the BerkelBike Fitness
Easy to use
Using the BerkelBike Fitness is very easy. Just place a stable chair or your own wheelchair in front of the device. Put your feet on the pedals, and secure them with the adjustable cuffs if necessary. Grab the handles of the crank, and start the training. The display will light up automatically as soon as you move crank or pedals.
Using this BerkelBike is the best thing that ever happened to me!
