YouBike™ is used by a range of people and centres across a range of disabilities as the ideal exercise bike for the arms and legs – such as spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimers, arthritis or Parkinson’s Disease. If you have limited or no use of legs then the support pedals model will be required.
Difference between the YouBike™ & BerkelBike – although both are for simultaneous arms and legs exercise they are both different and each have benefits depending on what you are looking for. The YouBike™ is a static bike, ideal for use from your wheelchair or on the bed, whereas the BerkelBike can be used outdoors just like a usual bicycle. The BerkelBike is also fully compatible with Function Electrical Simulation (FES) so your legs can be powered as your arms go around.
