The Neurological Pedal Set, available through Spirit Medical Systems Group, Jonesboro, Ark, can be installed on a Spirit Medical rehabilitation bike (Upright – MU100 or Recumbent –MR100) or almost any other standard stationary bike with a 9/16-inch threaded crank.
Once installed, the Neurological Pedal Set is designed to allow patients with neurological dysfunctions to exercise in a closed-kinetic chain environment. The company’s website notes that the user’s foot is secured with the Velcro straps to the pedal in both the heel cup and toe areas. The pedal set (both left and right side) is built to accommodate and allow patients with hemiparesis, cerebral palsy, and other neurological disorders to exercise as their foot/feet is secured to the pedal.
