OrthoBike™ OB1

Dual-Action Stationary Therapy Bike With Variable-Length Pedal Cranks

“I tried other tools but they weren’t working. The bike helped me the most,
the range of motion and the bending of the knee. Basically, out of all the things
I did in my rehab, the bike was the most helpful.” Don A.

[separator top=”15″] [checklist icon=”check-sign” iconcolor=”dark” circle=”no”]

  • Dual-action: arms control pedal movement, combined upper and lower body movement
  • Variable-length pedal crank (2″-6″)
  • Variable-length pedal crank increases maximum flexion (at full extension) from 60° to 100° in 10-degree increments
  • Adjustable seat: horizontal (1″-19″) and vertical (1”-4”)
  • Flexion angle increases by ~4° with every inch the seat is moved forward
  • Hardware settings restrict patients to movement within desired range.
  • Only two settings to remember: pedal and seat.
  • Systematic progression from limited-to-full range of motion.
  • Low mass and resistance drive train
  • Adjustable resistance
  • Simple speed and distance display
  • Small footprint, lightweight, and portable
  • Full recumbent riding mode
  • Wheelchair-accessible
  • Four-way adjustable lever arms
  • Protocols for increasing flexion/extension, strength, and gait speed
  • Option: Electronic tablet holder and stand
  • Option: Wireless cadence sensor and Android tablet – based ride motivator and data system (Coach AL™ Ride Motivator)
  • Option: Access ride session data via web portal

Benefits

  • Adds substantial new capabilities to the therapy clinic: 1) systematic and progressive method for early range of motion rehab of knees and hips, 2) home use, 3) effective tool to help patients with difficult circumstances get through the barriers, 4) enhanced gait training with resistance at gait speed.
  • Patients can take responsibility for their pain and progress from the very beginning of rehab.
  • Patients know the milestones and can see progress in terms of functional movement as measured by the OrthoBike seat and pedal positions.
  • Decreasing the patients’ pain and fear of functional movement early leads to improved compliance, confidence, and motivation, in turn leading to better outcomes and faster return to full functional movement.
  • Patients with difficult circumstances find a workable means to solve lingering problems of weakness, stiffness, discomfort, lack of extension and/or flexion.
  • Easy for weak patients to initiate and maintain movement.
  • Therapists (and patients) are confident the patient’s movements are restricted by the hardware settings to the desired range of motion.
  • Consistent ergometer-based therapy from patient-to-patient.
  • Patients remember settings and can quickly set up correctly without staff help for session-to-session continuity and staff time-savings.
  • Versatile: rehab for knee and hip replacement and repair, shoulder replacement and repair (early), neurological (stroke, TBI, etc.) for adult and pediatric, cardiac rehab (cardio a plus).
  • Portability allows therapists to transfer therapy to the home to multiply the benefits of rehab.
  • Motor control centers and the convalescing tissues are rehabbed at the same time.
  • On-line compliance monitoring and actual riding session data from home use for reporting.
