    Cycle

    Any suggestions on a cycle. I'm looking for something inexpensive for my daughter to work her legs. She has a little movement in her legs and thinking a exercise cycle might work if it can be adjusted to very minimal resistance. She has good balance, but the ones I've seen have little seats that she probably couldn't balance on. Just curious if anyone else here is using a cycle and what they use.

    I use a recumbent cycle and use my empi estim to trigger more otor than I can do on my own. Recumbent have full seats, are easier on the knees and provide a good workout. Schwinn has a moderate priced recumbent bike. http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/pr...367453.2367525

    I finally got David a Reck motomed, that has both the arms and legs attachment. This is no way a inexpensive option. However, I do have a small electric bike that can be set on the floor or on the table to do arms, that is fully adjustable. Meaning you can set the speed on it and it will work her legs at any rate she can handle. I will gladly give this to you if you pay for the shipping. If you are interested I can send you some pictures.

    Here is a link showing what I have: http://www.amazon.com/LifeCare-16000.../dp/B0007VB4HA

    MSWIFE1, do you pedal this yourself or does it do all the work for you? Do you know how much for shipping?

    It has a variable speed motor on it that does the pedaling for you. It automatically times out after about 15 minutes. So then you need to restart it. I can't remember, I will have to check but I don't think it as a resistance setting to pedal it yourself. David was never able to do it on his own so I didn't need that option. Not sure how much shipping would be. I work for the post office so if you send me a private message with your address or just your zip for now, I can take it to work with me and find out exactly. I hope it will work for your daughter. --Lisa

    MSWIFE1, thanks, but I really hoping for something that she has to pedal as she has enough return in her left leg to pedal with no resistance. Really appreciate the offer.

    No problem, I am happy she has some return. I checked and there is no resistance adjustment at all. Sorry I couldn't help.

    Check to see if you have an Ambucs in your area.
    They may set her up with a bike/trike for free. When she outgrows it, they will take it back and recycle and provide you with another.
