HOW CAN A BERKELBIKE HELP IN THE CASE OF AN AMPUTATION?
With an amputation, you have lost (part) of the limbs. As a result, biking, walking and keeping the body in good condition can be very difficult. This can cause serious problems in the long term, such as diabetes and poor cardiovascular health. Training with the BerkelBike makes you mobile again and keeps your body fit and in good condition.
You can propel the BerkelBike with both your arms and legs. This happens in such a way that the arms provide support for your stump(s) and prosthesis. For many people with an amputation this is enough to enable them to cycle again. Via special pedals and leg supports the stump or prosthesis can be secured.
