OPTIONAL PEDAL ACCESSORIES
MA900 Rehabilitation Adjustable Crank
The MA900 flexibly accommodates patients by its incrementally adjustable cranks, from as little as 15 degrees. Smaller degrees render smaller circular lower body motions. As a result, patients with limited ROM can start therapy earlier than by using other rehab equipment. Ultimately, patients acquire passive and active mobilization for hips, knees and ankles.
Training merits with the MA900 include:
The MA900 benefits: total knee replacements, total hip replacements, ACL, MCL, & PCL repairs, ligamentous tears, patella femoral conditions, tibial stress injuries, tendonitis, and other arthritic, neurological, and muscular conditions.
MA901 Neurological Pedal Set
The MA901 enables patients with neurological dysfunctions to exercise in a closed kinetic chain environment. This is achieved by having patients' feet secured to the pedal with a heel cup and 2 straps.
Training merits with the MA901 include:
The adjustable tightness ensures that the feet do not move during closed kinetic chain exercise.
The MA901 can replace most existing 9/16" threaded bike cranks. Your standard exercise bike becomes a clinically effective rehabilitation tool.
The MA901 accommodates: patients with hemiparesis, cerebral palsy, and other neurological disorders.
