Exercycle and Theracycle Over the Years

In 1932, a New York City mechanical engineer designed a motor-driven stationary bicycle for his wife who had a neuromuscular disorder. His hopes were that by helping her maintain constant, full-body motion, it would help alleviate her muscular ailments. His invention worked so well that it soon attracted the attention of others who wanted to keep fit but lacked strength or endurance. This machine, later named Exercycle, became the exercise method of choice for more than one hundred thousand people.

Over the years, fitness enthusiasts from all walks of life have discovered the Exercycle—from Presidents FDR and Eisenhower, to screen stars John Wayne and Jane Fonda. Everyone benefited from the Exercycle’s combined movements of swimming, rowing, cycling, chin-ups, and calisthenics in one efficient and fluid workout.

Now, we have incorporated years of technical know-how and experience based on the original Exercycle to develop another revolutionary exercise bicycle—one designed specifically for the unique needs of people with Parkinson’s who lack the strength and endurance to use traditional exercise equipment. The Theracycle helps with Forced Exercise—working harder and longer than one can do on their own.
