Spirit Recumbent Lower Body Ergometer Bike MR100
Cycling utilizes the large muscles in your legs, thighs and buttocks to build more lean body mass. Recumbent cycling with the MR100 is designed to build strength in the lower extremities which will help elderly people recover sit-to-stand and step-up movements. Cycling also burns calories, making it easier to lose and maintain weight.
The Spirit Recumbent Lower Body Ergometer Bike MR100 is safe due to a larger seat, back support and lower height. Using the MR100 recumbent bicycle provides advantages for muscle and cardiovascular training in patient groups with impaired mobility. The larger seat, back rest and semireclining position is more comfortable than a traditional small bicycle seat with an upright posture.
Recumbent cycling with the Spirit Recumbent Lower Body Ergometer Bike MR100 puts less stress on the knee and hip, so it may be beneficial for people with arthritis. The MR100 lower ergometer recumbent bikes extends the angle of the knee joint so that the knee and hip aren’t flexing so much with each rotation. This means that MR100 will cause less hip and knee pain than a traditional bicycle.

Optional Pedal Accessories
MA900 Rehabilitation Adjustable Crank
The MA900 flexibly accommodates patients by its incrementally adjustable cranks, from as little as 15 degrees. Smaller degrees render smaller circular lower body motions. As a result, patients with limited ROM can start therapy earlier than by using other rehab equipment. Ultimately, patients acquire passive and active mobilization for hips, knees and ankles.
Training merits with the MA900 include:
The MA900 can replace most existing 9/16" threaded bike cranks. Your standard exercise bike becomes a clinically effective rehabilitation tool.
The MA900 benefits: total knee replacements, total hip replacements, ACL, MCL, & PCL repairs, ligamentous tears, patella femoral conditions, tibial stress injuries, tendonitis, and other arthritic, neurological, and muscular conditions.
MA901 Neurological Pedal Set
The MA901 enables patients with neurological dysfunctions to exercise in a closed kinetic chain environment. This is achieved by having patients' feet secured to the pedal with a heel cup and 2 straps.
Training merits with the MA901 include:
The adjustable tightness ensures that the feet do not move during closed kinetic chain exercise.
The MA901 can replace most existing 9/16" threaded bike cranks. Your standard exercise bike becomes a clinically effective rehabilitation tool.
The MA901 accommodates: patients with hemiparesis, cerebral palsy, and other neurological disorders.
