Theracycle & Parkinson’s Disease

How the Theracycle Helps Improve the lives of individuals with PD

A research study at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio proved that individuals with Parkinson’s disease who followed a forced-exercise regimen showed a significant reduction in their PD symptoms.

Forced exercise is an exercise/therapy where people with Parkinson’s exercise at a rate and duration greater than what they can do on their own. The Theracycle’s motor allows people with Parkinson’s to follow the very same forced-exercise regimen as in the Cleveland Clinic study.

Benefits of forced exercise include the following:

  • Improved gait and balance
  • Reduced falls
  • Increased flexibility and posture
  • Improved endurance
  • Reduced freezing of gait
  • Improved working memory and decision making
  • Improved attention and concentration
  • Reduced depression and anxiety
  • Improved quality of sleep
