Designed for people with physical limitations, medBike is ideal for independent use by individuals in their home, or in neurorehabilitation settings, SNFs, rehabilitation hospitals, and even private practice. medBike’s open design offers comfortable access for those exercising from a chair or a wheelchair.
Proven to be very effective for MS and Parkinson’s disease, the motion training of medBike helps loosen and strengthen muscles, and reduce spasticity. Research has shown that some people with Parkinson’s disease can benefit by exercising in the Pedal Assisted Mode at the higher rpm levels that the medBike can offer, up to 90 rpm. The Continuous Control System avoids overstraining the lower- and upper-leg muscles, creating safe exercise conditions.
Motion training is also effective in assisting neurologic rehabilitation. Repetition is essential for training when brain or nerve damage exists. Frequent and regular movement helps with the recovery of some function.
Using a mobile App, medBike integrates with any Android device. Assistance can be provided remotely with the performance of up to eight exercise sessions monitored simultaneously. For home use, exercise performance can be stored to the Android or shared via email.
medBike’s touch display presents graphic biomechanic flowcharts for easy understanding. Personal data is input to individualize each training session and finished with a detailed log depicting the relevant biodata used in motion training.
To assure a comfortable and correct position, the Calf Supports provide safe guidance.
