Independent cycling with one leg on bicycle
Do you still have strength in your leg and would like to ride a bicycle independently with one leg? This is possible! At Van Raam we have a stationary pedal crank. This is only applicable when you can only use one leg for pedalling. Then this is a solution for continuing to ride a bicycle.
In order to be able to attach this to the bicycle, an adjustment is made to the frame. On the side where you can no longer pedal, a stationary crank is placed. A spring construction is attached to the bottom bracket, which allows you to continue pedaling with the other healthy leg without using the non-functional leg. Such a stationary crank can be attached to any of the Van Raam bikes
Cycling with a prosthesis is possible, but not for everyone. The ability to cycle again depends on your age, your balance and the degree of amputation. If you want to learn to cycle again during your rehabilitation, the occupational therapist can work with the physiotherapist to see how you can achieve this goal. (beeraf.nl)
