RIDE FOR YOUR HEALTH
More and more we see customers that are moving to recumbent trikes because of health or assisted needs reason. The trike platform allows is perfect for customers with:
Knee / Hip Joint Replacement
Most of our customers that have had knee or hip joints replaced have been sent to us by their rehabilitation therapist or orthopaedics doctor and recommend exercise of the muscles around the joint without jogging or pounding the area excessively after surgery.
TerraTrikes are perfect for that. The rider can build muscle back and extend the joint through using smooth pedal action. If the leg muscles are weak on hills, they simply gear down a few gears and go slower, but use less pressure. Reduce the joint stress and still continue your exercise!
Back / Neck Problems
Chiropractors reccomend TerraTrikes regularly to their customers. In fact, we are endorsed by the Michigan Chiropractic Association. Riders with back or neck issues that can't lean forward to ride a normal upright bike, find the recumbent seat with it's adjustable recline and ergonomic , laid-back design, extremely comfortable. The seat gives full support and even lumbar support throughout.
The way we see it, life is much to short to spend it in front of a screen. The more active you are, no matter what your age, the better your heart, mind, and body are going to feel. With a TerraTrike, you'll find you're no longer making excuses not to ride - you're making them just to back on again!
