Rehabilitation with a Van Raam 3 wheel bicycle
Until I had a stroke, I worked as a researcher in horticulture and agriculture and was very active with my hobbies: basketball, walking and road bicycle racing. In 2017, all that stopped (partly) when I suffered a stroke. The consequences of this are partial disablement and reduced mobility and balance.
“During my subsequent stay in rehabilitation centre Rijndam in Rotterdam (the Netherlands), I first became acquainted with Van Raam bicycles. The Easy Rider 3 wheel bicycle seemed to fit me and my limitations the best. I looked at the website to see what options and adjustments are available and went for a consultation at Van Raam in Varsseveld."
"This was a positive meeting, and I was advised to order the tricycle with a footrest, mirror, one-hand lock, and hydraulic rear brake. I then went to the dealer, who ordered the bike for me with pedal support. We also immediately bought a trailer, so we van go on holiday with is.”
“The bicycle gives me freedom and the opportunity to go out on my own.”Marian Folkers-Vlaswinkel
The Easy Rider 3 wheel bicycle
I have had the bike since 2018 and I am very happy with it. I use it for shopping and, almost daily, to cycle around. Cycling provides distraction which makes me feel my nerve pain less. The bicycle gives me freedom and the opportunity to go out on my own. I cycle almost 100 kilometres a week. We do the maintenance of the bicycle at Medipoint. We usually have an appointment with them quickly when we encounter problems. They have an excellent service. I give the Easy Rider an 8! I like the bike very much.
