Healthcare, Wellness, and Fitness Professionals who Recommend the Theracycle.
We have been using the Theracycle 100 in this rehab facility since March of 2007 with numerous success stories. We have been able to incorporate its use into a variety of diagnosis from total knee replacements to Alzheimer’s dementia patients. The uses are limitless. Just a few of the treatment diagnosis that have benefited are TKR, hip fractures, COPD, MS, contractures, cancer, pneumonia, CVA/TIA, and s/p surgeries. We have found a strong use in this facility for patients who have difficulty using normal self-pedaling machines. Patients enjoy the ability to ‘bike’ on the Theracycle 100, whether benefiting from the passive or resistive element. The variety of options, positions, and attachments offered with the Theracycle 100 allows you to adapt its fit to most patients and not have to worry about constantly checking to see if they are still properly positioned. During this time frame, we have had many patients request specifically to ‘go on’ the Theracycle 100 during their treatment session, ask to come use it at times outside of their regular treatment schedule and even enquire about purchasing a unit for their own home use. We have had no mechanical issues with the Theracycle 100 during the months that we have used it and it is very easy to operate. The Theracycle 100 has been a welcome addition in the Rehab Department for the therapists in complimenting their treatment, but most importantly to the patients who have progressed with its use to reach their goals.” Tracey Roy, Rehab Manager, MSPT
Twelve patients at our facility were able to trial the Theracycle. Disabilities included incomplete paraplegia, hemiparesis, decreased range of motion and general muscular weakness. Each patient was able to ride the bicycle successfully with resultant increases in range of motion, increases in strength, improved motor control and improved functional mobility. Many of these patients had not had success with other forms of passive exercise because of insufficient strength. However, with the use of the motorized Theracycle, the patients were able to ride independently for 15-30 minutes. This bicycle offered an endurance activity to those patients who in the past have been unable to access endurance or cardiovascular equipment. Our facility was pleased with the performance of Theracycle. It was easy for patients to use independently, and made significant difference in strength, tone, and overall functional mobility.” Amy Bjornson
