YouBike - An exciting exercise product from New Zealand launched recently at the Medica Trade Show and aimed at persons with a disability - pehaps spinal cord injury, MS or recovering from a stroke. The manufacturers describe YouBike™ as the world’s first cardiovascular exercise bike which has been specifically designed to be used on a bed. Being a multi purpose bike, it may also be floor mounted and used with or without a wheelchair to exercise the arms and legs. Originally designed for exercise following a spinal cord injury, we can easily imagine the YouBike™ being used by persons recovering from a stroke or managing conditions such as MS or Parkinsons. Any person in bed and requiring active exercise can benefit. Quite simply an ideal portable exercise technology for rehabilitation units, for physical therapists traveling to clients, or for any person needing safe but effective exercise at home.The hand cranks are connected to the foot cranks via a direct drive belt.
