Electrical stimulation can be used in multiple ways depending on what you want to achieve. Two different training methods are described below.
Electro-stimulation – Fixed
The BerkelBike invites users to combine FES with the bike to achieve maximum results. It is also possible to use FES as a standalone system. This FES system has been developed to provide small electrical impulses to stimulate (and train) muscles. This technique can be used to bike with a BerkelBike or EasyLegs product, but it can also stimulate muscles while lying in bed. The BerkelBike is often used to train abdominal and back muscles.
Electro-stimulation – Moving
The best results are obtained when the FES system is combined with a BerkelBike. This offers a way to train the whole body. Combining the FES system with an EasyLegs will only train the legs. Combining FES with a bike will result in the best physical and mental benefits and increases mobility. The FES system enables the user to go outside and make use of electronic stimulation in the open air.
