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 to 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 a 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 long-term health effects and increase their mobility, sense of independence and fitness.

HOW DOES the EASYLEGS function?

The EasyLegs can help people become active after suffering a stroke. Using the EasyLegs the body can be trained using leg propulsion. This is especially advantageous when there are coordination problems, for example on one side of the body. The unaffected side of the body can support the affected side, while it increases in strength.

If the legs lack the strength to cycle, they can passively move along with the pedaling assistance. This passive movement is still important to remain fit. The three wheels and the wide seating area provide the EasyLegs with good stability in the case of balancing problems. Besides increasing fitness, the EasyLegs is also very suitable for rehabilitation.

HEalth BENEFITS of AN EASYLEGS

Cycling with the EasyLegs after a stroke improves fitness, which in the long term reduces health risks including the risk of additional strokes. Using the trike, cycling and remaining active is comfortable and enjoyable and maintaining a healthy lifestyle becomes easy. Additionally, the physical movement has a positive effect on the mental state and makes people feel fitter and happier.
