Does it help with foot neuropathy and edema?
While we do not offer medical advice, there are many benefits to using ACT - Studies show stationary biking is a safer exercise mode than treadmill walking in controlling foot edema. We encourage you to review our website at www.Nobol.com and go to the Health Benefits page to learn more about Assisted Cycling Therapy (ACT), they are numerous.
Will The PhysioPedal help with my stroke therapy?
ACT at low cadences (30-50 rpm), often called passive cycling, is sometimes used in the acute phase after a stroke for patients with impaired motor function and insufficient active muscular contractions. ACT may also benefit motor recovery during the chronic post-stroke period in the lower extremities for aerobic exercise. Based on case reports, ACT was feasible and safe for all participants, and the heart rates stayed around 90 bpm. Thus, ACT may not be overly fatiguing and allow for occupational and physical therapy sessions afterward.
What is Assisted Cycling Therapy (ACT)?
Assisted Cycle Therapy (ACT) is a method of intervention that has positively affected motor and cognitive functioning in clinical populations with compromised CNS, poor motor function, low exercise motivation, and reduced cognition. Studies have shown that this project has the potential to change clinical practice, which may improve motor and cognitive functioning, as well as attitudes towards exercise for populations with neurologic disorders that inhibit movement rate. Future research will continue to examine the mechanisms responsible for improving global motor functioning following ACT interventions.
Does this stay stable when being used?
The PhysioPedal is designed to stay stable through the multiple-speed gears, adapted to people's needs and abilities at different stages. Moreover, it has a built-in Mechanism that warns the user if it becomes unstable and stops the device.
Can you use this machine with just your arms, and can you use it in reverse?
The PhysioPedal is the world's first battery-powered motor-assisted cycle designed to improve the upper and lower body's range of motion and condition. It has multiple functions, such as forward and reverses, which are supported simultaneously to allow for a complete rehabilitation plan.
