The BerkelBike Pro

The BerkelBike Pro is a combination of a hand bike and a recumbent bicycle. The bike can be driven by the strength of both your arms and legs. The handles and foot pedals are connected so that it is possible to cycle by pedaling with the legs and holding the handles like a steering wheel. If you move the handles, the foot pedals move as well.

LUKE SINNOTT (AMPUTATION) ABOUT THE BERKELBIKE PRO

Luke Sinnott served as a captain of the explosives cleanup service in the province of Helmand, Afghanistan. During a mission he walked on a berm bomb that severed both his legs. “It felt like all life was flowing out of my body”, he said. “I thought about home and didn’t want to die like this.” He lost both legs.

This year, Luke is one of the British athletes who participate in the World ParaAthletics Championships London 2017. He can easily ride the BerkelBike with his walking prosthetics. Luke got to know the BerkelBike on a trade fair, he was one of the first Berkel Bikers with an aluminum frame in England. Years later, he is still very excited about this solution to his mobility problem.

HOW DOES A BERKELBIKE PRO WORK?

You can support the movement of your legs with the strength in your arms and shoulders. This allows your legs to cycle in a full circle, even if your legs have lost a lot of strength and coordination. During cycling, you can distribute the effort over all of your limbs, this means tired body parts can rest.

A ride with the BerkelBike counts as full body training. Both well-functioning body parts and limbs with reduced function can benefit from a bike ride. In addition, in combination with electrical stimulation, legs with little or no function can be moved again after a transverse lesion or any others neurological condition.

The BerkelBike Fitness was developed for home use. As with the other BerkelBike models, it is a possibility to train both arms and legs at the same time.

The handles and foot pedals are connected, allowing the user to support the legs with the arms or vice versa if necessary. Likewise, in the case of semi-sided paralysis, strong side of the body can also support the weak side.

The user puts their feet on the pedals; these can be secured with adjustable straps if necessary. The screen will light up as soon as the handles or foot pedals are moved and the training can begin.

EMILY HOLT (MS) ABOUT THE BERKELBIKE CONNECT

It’s been a while since Emily tried the BerkelBike for the first time. She fell in love with the bike because the stiffness and pain in her legs disappeared completely. Although she cannot walk, she enjoys training her legs without pain and doesn’t have to take medication. Emily bought the BerkelBike and trains a few times a week to soften the pain in her legs.

CYCLING WITH THE BERKELBIKE CONNECT?

The handles and foot pedals are connected. It is also possible to use only the legs while cycling while holding the handles as a steering wheel. If you move the handles, the foot pedals rotate as well. So, you can choose to let your legs do the work or to help them with your arm power.

The pedal assist system helps you to perform a full cycle with the pedals. This is even possible if you have little power and coordination in your legs. This system allows you to distribute the effort during the cycling and you can give your tired limbs some rest during cycling.

A trip with the BerkelBike Connect counts as full body training. Body parts with reduced function and limbs with normal function can both get effective training. If you have injured your spine, you can combine the BerkelBike with our electrical stimulation to get your paralysed legs moving again.

THE MOST LUXURY TRICYCLE ON THE MARKET

The EasyLegs Pro is a conventional tricycle, moved with the legs. It can be used by people with physical disabilities as well as by healthy people. The product was developed to provide more stability than the average three-wheel bike.

The EasyLegs Pro can be equipped with electric pedal support. Our accessories allow you to adapt the tricycles even better to meet your personal needs.

LUKE CHAMBERLAYNE IS CYCLING WITH A TRANSVERSE LESION

Due to high level paraplegia, Luke Chamberlayne was left with little strength and control in his legs. With his severe handicap, he never expected to be able to ride a bike again.

Thanks to clever adjustments – like special gloves, a main brake and a smart pedal support – we’ve been succeeded making Luke cycle again with the Easylegs Pro. With great pleasure, he now cycles every week three to four times. Check out his story below.

TRICYCLE WITH THE EASE OF A SCOOTER

The EasyLegs with electric pedal support offers the best of both worlds. It combines the convenience of a scooter with the movement you would get with a regular bike. Even if you cannot complete a full cycling motion, the pedal support helps you whenever you need it.

Just like the accelerator of a scooter, the EasyLegs has a lever to control the electric pedal support. With this lever, you can decide how much assistance you need for your pedaling. You can do all the work yourself, or leave it completely over to the pedal assist, or anything in between.

Where a conventional engine drives the wheels directly, the EasyLegs pedal assist is connected to the lower lever that moves the pedals. This means that even if you fully open the handle, your legs have a workout by going through the pedaling movement. This is the biggest advantage of a supporting engine compared with the engine of an e-bike.

If people don’t know that you’re using the pedal support, they will not notice that your legs are supported while cycling. The pedaling movement looks quite natural, even with the pedal support. The EasyLegs is more than a new option; it’s a healthy alternative to the scooter.
