WHat can the berkelbike offer to people with an amputation?
Keeping the body in a good condition can be very difficult for people with an amputation. A lack of movement, due to the loss of limbs, can cause serious health problems in the long run, such as diabetes and poor cardiovascular health. The BerkelBike provides a way for people with an amputation to become mobile again and keep the body fit and in a good condition.
People with an amputation can cycle using the BerkelBike by using both arms and legs; the arms provide support for stump(s) and prostheses. We have developed special pedals and leg supports to which the stump(s) or prostheses can be secured.
