Parkinson's disease exercises can be daunting when facing challenges of Parkinson’s disease like decreased mobility, flexibility and loss of balance. With Theracycle exercise equipment, you can train your body and brain to keep moving and stay flexible while performing exercises for Parkinson’s disease. Our whisper-quiet bikes feature a powerful ½ horsepower motor that pushes you through your daily ride as an integral part of your Parkinson’s exercises. The unique motorized technology behind Theracycle’s Parkinson’s disease exercise equipment allows you to enjoy a full-body at-home workout helping you build and maintain strength and balance.
Doctors, physical therapists, and researchers continue to uncover the benefits of Parkinson’s disease exercise.
“After many months of symptoms and tests, on July 30, 2009, I was officially diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. During this time my wife heard a Good Morning America special about Dr. Jay L. Alberts and his study on forced exercise with an exercise bike. This training was of great interest to me, so I began researching the equipment and found Theracycle, a unique exercise bicycle for those who have difficulty getting the exercise they need. Unlike conventional exercise bicycles, Theracycle has a whisper-quiet motor that moves the pedals with you, helping you get the gentle exercise you need. I took Dr. Alberts’ study to Falcon Physical Therapy and asked Marc to follow the same protocol for me as was done in the study. I have 45 minutes of therapy, and then ride the bike for 60 minutes. My Theracycle workout includes a 10-minute warm-up, 40 minutes at maximum speed, and a 10-minute cool down. After just four weeks I was re-tested. I had some improvements on the upper body and marked improvements on the lower extremities. Another great side benefit was a 20-point drop in my blood pressure! I also have more energy and feel better both physically and emotionally.”
