The design of the bicycles provides excellent back support and can be adjusted to fit your body size,making it possible to achieve a safe, effective and comfortable session.

Recumbent bicycles are especially effective in treating knee injuries and in helping recover from knee surgeries. The exercise bike does not require sporadic muscle movement that other fitness equipment can, but safely strengthens the tissue around the joints, which can help patients recover a full range of movement.
Underthe guided care of a physical therapist, exercise bikes are useful in treating many different kinds of injuries and conditions.
