WHICH BENEFITS HAS A BERKELBIKE FOR MY HEALTH?
The BerkelBike has shown that it can support the rehabilitation process after a SCI, but besides, there are many other positive effects as well. For example, the BerkelBike minimizes the risk of developing a decubitus and prevents the loss of muscle tissue. Physical activity, moreover, not only has positive effects on the body, but also on the spirit. Movement provides a good and healthy feeling throughout the day.
Another important health benefit of the BerkelBike is that the BerkelBike stimulates both the arms and the legs toward movement. The leg muscles are the largest muscle group in the human body. These muscles must be trained in order to become physically fit in an optimal manner. The blood circulation in the lower body improves, and this will help the rehabilitation process after a SCI.
The level of the incomplete SCI determines the functioning and the restrictions of the body. We offer different accessories which give you the support you need in order to be able to cycle, even for people with a high incomplete SCI; often this is combined with Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES).
