WHAT CAN AN EASYLEGS offer to people after a STROKE?
During a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), commonly known as a stroke, brain cells die due to a lack of oxygen when the blood flow of the brain is reduced. This is often caused by a blockage of a blood vessel to the brain.
The symptoms of a CVA depend on the brain area affected by the lack of oxygen. The most common symptom is loss of strength or paralysis on one side of the body with a partial or complete loss of the ability to move and feel. After a CVA, people often suffer from limitations, such as reduced mobility, blindness, balance problems and coordination problems. The BerkelBike is designed to enable people who have had a stroke cycle in a comfortable manner to reduce longterm health effects and increase their mobility, sense of independence and fitness.
