Paralyzed patients can cycle again with new $35K bike from U of C: VIDEO
















A new bicycle that will allow paralyzed patients to cycle was unveiled Wednesday at the University of Calgary.

It’s a functional electrical stimulation (FES) bike and it electrically stimulates the muscles to simulate a cycling motion through skin. It can help those with spinal cord injury, stroke and multiple sclerosis, among other conditions.

The $35,000 bike will be available for public use in the University of Calgary Outdoor Centre’s THRIVE Centre thanks to grants from a number of organizations.

The bike will be made available to patients who have obtained medical clearance and have completed an assessment at a qualified centre. Two other FES bikes are located in the Foothills Medical Centre and the Spinal Cord Injury Alberta Office. Calgary Health Trust is currently fundraising to purchase additional FES bikes; click here to contribute.
