Recumbent tricycle and hand cycle combined

Arm and leg power

The BerkelBike is an innovative tricycle with the propulsion coming from both arm and leg power. The arm part operates in drive as well as in steering exactly the same as a hand cycle. By hand-biking with your arms, your legs automatically make the same movement as on a bicycle. Every effort you can add with your legs is favorable. Due to our innovative devices your feet do not slip off the pedals. In this way you train your legs and maximize your health.

Try out the BerkelBike yourself. This way you will see that we have combined the best things of the hand cycle, recumbent bike and tricycle and added some more.

Functional Electrical Stimulation for paralyzed legs

The BerkelBike is not only a combination of existing products but also offers an extra feature, the Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES). This electronic system can get completely cripple legs moving again. For people with a spinal cord injury, the stimulation of crippled muscles provided by the BerkelBike can restore some use- even after 30 years of paralysis.

Connectable to wheelchair

For people that are using a wheelchair we developed the BerkelBike Connect. The Connect system can be connected to your wheelchair. Therefore it is smaller and easily transportable. Where you still enjoy the benefits that the independent BerkelBike Pro has to offer.

Outdoor and stationary with one bike

In no time at all you can convert the Connect or Pro into a state of the art indoor trainer. Using the specially adapted Tacx cycle trainer. Both recreational and professional cyclists train with this system.

The BBC did a piece about Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) a while back. While the BerkelBike has used the FES-system for years now, it isn't that known everywhere in the world. The reaction of BBC and the four men were positive and amazed, which is a very good thing. We hope more general awareness will be made for FES as every health professional should know this excists! http://www.bbc.com/news/health-26920521
