TRAIN ON THE BERKELBIKE FITNESS WITH ARMS AND LEGS
The BerkelBike Fitness was developed for home use. As with the other BerkelBike models, it is possibility to train both arms and legs at the same time.
The mechanism is designed so that the handles and foot pedals are connected, allowing you to support the legs with the arms or vice versa. The strong side of the body can also support the weak side, as is the case with semi-sided paralysis.
This trainer can be used in combination with Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES). If the bike is provided with the FES system, paralysed legs can be involved in the training as well. In this way, the Fitness offers complete body training even when you have a transverse injury.

HOW IS THE BERKELBIKE FITNESS USED?
You can use the BerkelBike Fitness sitting on an ordinary seat or in your own wheelchair. The foot pedals can be provided with additional lower leg fixation if your legs are in need of extra stability. There are eight different resistance levels and you can view time, distance, and calories consumed on the integrated screen. This is the most basic BerkelBike and the most affordable option for cycling with FES.
