Modified Bike Pedal

Project  / Project number: CB1929  /  Status:

The challenge

The client had a Stroke, affecting right side of the body. He had bought a static exercise bike, but was unable to use it as his right affected foot turns inwards due to stroke, touching the panel of the bike while he was trying to use it. The client’s daughter found an adaptive pedal online, but the Neuro Rehab Physio was unsure if this pedal would work, and asked Remap to investigate.

The solution

The Remap engineer researched suitable adaptive pedals, and suggested one which he felt would best suit the client’s needs. The client purchased the adaptive pedal, which included heel support, and an easy to use strap. It was fitted by the Remap engineer.

The benefit

The client was delighted to be able to use his exercise bike. He wrote the following letter:

“Mike recently helped me by sourcing and fitting a replacement pedal to my exercise bike. This has enabled me to now use the bike, whereas previously I couldn’t. I am using the bike as part of my rehab following a stroke….”

    Is it possible to purchase this innovation
    I work with stroke survivors and this would be extremely useful when using a semi recumbent bike

    I bought a great pedal that has a heel cup and straps that works perfectly from
    They were wonderful when I had questions and it shipped quickly. No modifications needed.

    1. CambridgeBlue says:

      Hello Barbara, the pedal used in this case is not quite the same as the ones available from the bicycleman, but I’m glad that you’ve found something that you’re happy with. The “modification” in this case, was changing the standard pedal which came with the exercise bike for the one which best suited the client. Our volunteer engineer then fitted it for the client.

      1. CambridgeBlue says:

        I did send you the product information on 9th December, perhaps it went to your spam? But as you’ve got a suitable product from elsewhere, that’s fine.

  14. Barbara Finkelstein says:

    It looks pretty similar to what I purchased. Just thought I’d give people another option.
