Originally designed as a mobile therapy rehabilitation training tool for stroke patients, the Pedal Wheelchair was created as a way for stroke patients to train their afflicted weaker leg by exercising the healthy leg. EMG results showed that by getting the healthy limb in motion, the patient's afflicted limb may begin to be simultaneously stimulated into action as the muscles contract, whereas they could not consciously make the muscles contract before!
Today, the Pedal Wheelchair has become a solution for elderly individuals or those with special needs who might benefit from increased physical activity or leg-strengthening exercise. Sturdy, comfortable and easy-to-steer, the this revolutionary and lightweight wheelchair helps improve muscular and cardio-respiratory health, increase mobility and restore independence. It's "Rehab on the Go" to those in need and some even consider it FUN!
