The challenge

Footplate for exercise bicycleThis client, following a stroke, was unable to use his exercise bicycle due to his left foot falling off the pedal. His wife also needed to use the bike as she has multiple sclerosis.

Footplates were made and attached to the existing pedals. Top straps were made out of vinyl flooring and with heel supports out of ‘gutter stop ends’ to suit both the client and his wife’s foot size.

The client and his wife can use the horizontal exercise bike at will.
