We make your legs move!

The users of our bikes are people with limited or no function in their legs. In addition, we have plenty of customers who simply have problems keeping their balance or even have no impairment at all. Our products have become an integral part of their daily life. Many of them thought that they could never again cycle with their legs.

The BerkelBike is a combination of handcycle and recumbent bike driven by the power of both arms and legs. If you have limited or no use of your legs, this propulsion system will enable you to support the movement of your legs with the strength of your arms and shoulders. We also offer a more conventional tricycle, the EasyLegs. Like the BerkelBike, it is characterized by its low weight, great stability, and the fact that it can be customized in length, width, seating height, and angle.

Our bikes are available as a complete tricycle that can be taken apart for ease of transportation or as a one-wheeled device that can be connected to your own wheelchair. Also, if you suffer from paralysis, they can be equipped with our Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) system, enabling you to include your paralyzed legs in the movement.
