Richard Wilson – Spinal Cord Injury
Richard lives near Milton Keynes in the UK. After an accident, he got a complete spinal cord injury at C5/C6. He uses his BerkelBike inside and outside. When the weather is bad he cycles indoors. He often bikes the same route in order to keep track of his progress. He noticed strong progress in his shape and speed ever since he started training.
How Richard uses his BerkelBike
Richard uses a BerkelBike Connect, which can be connected to his wheelchair. The Docking Station VR allows Richard to cycle his favorite track and track his progress, even if the weather isn’t good enough to go outdoors.
Whether he uses the bike indoors or outdoors, he always uses FES technology. It allows him to cycle with both arms and legs, or even just legs, thanks to the incredible progress he has made. During summer, Richard likes to cycle daily through a nature-rich environment, filled with trees, long green fields and hills. The BerkelBike Connect has allowed him to build a lot of muscle in his legs and enjoy his beautiful surroundings.
