Invaluable for upper extremity rehabilitation and conditioning.
The Biodex Upper Body Cycle is a versatile ergometer that can be used in orthopedic rehabilitation, cardiac, sports medicine, wellness, or home settings. It will exercise individuals with limited lower-body function, help enhance mobility and muscle tone in the shoulder, back, neck, wrist, and elbow, and give healthy athletes a grueling workout.
Use the Upper Body Cycle anywhere. There is no need for AC power, since the internal battery is automatically recharged when work rates reach or exceed 30 watts and 50 rpm. The battery-supported system maintains all settings and LED displays before and after cycling. An AC adapter is provided for extended use at work rates below 30 watts and 50 rpm.
The “Quick-Start” feature gets your first-time cyclists right into their exercises. Isokinetic (speed control) provides accommodating resistance throughout the cyclist’s entire range of motion for the duration of the exercise period. Resistance continuously matches effort, accommodating to variations in the patient’s force output due to weakness or pain at specific points in the individual’s range of motion, and to fatigue over the course of the cycling period. With a selection of 15 speeds (50 to 120 deg/sec), this resistance mode maximizes strength gains while minimizing the potential for injury.
Conditioning capabilities are expanded by providing bi-directional cycling to alternately work reciprocal muscle groups.
The welded heavy-gauge steel frame, epoxy powder-coat finish, and moisture-resistant ABS plastic enclosure, round out a rugged and durable design that will withstand extensive use in the busiest settings. Large wheels make transporting and repositioning easy. Heart rate monitoring can be achieved with a telemetry chest strap to track heart rate without interrupting exercise – useful for achieving target heart rate, and for monitoring high-risk individuals.
Those with hand and wrist limitations will find comfort and security of maintaining stable hand position throughout the exercise session. The Hand/Wrist Cuffs allow users with limited or no hand strength or control to enjoy the benefits of upper body exercise.
Total upper body strengthening and conditioning for all shoulder, back, neck, wrist and elbow.
Provides a great warm-up prior to all upper body exercises.
Enables cardiovascular activity for early phase ACL users. Provides internal/external rotation exercise against bi-directional isokinetic resistance, useful for the throwing athlete.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
Excellent warm-up prior to activities.
Low seat height makes wheelchair transfer easy or seat can be removed entirely to allow exercises while remaining in the wheelchair. Adjustable pivoting actuator easily accommodates all wheelchair users.
Total Hip and Total Knee Replacements:
Upper Body Cycling may help maintain conditioning for older adults following surgery.
Low-impact exercise may help maintain cardiovascular health for any age group, and anyone with lower extremity mobility issues or impairments.
