    My husband has that problem on his outdoor trike. It is because his right hip abductor is not as strong as the left. Can you get an attachment brace for it that supports your calf?

    many things can cause your legs to 'flop in & out' when cycling.
    distance of your body to the cycle, ROM limitations, electrode placement (of the leg electrodes as well as the glute electrodes), height of the cycle, body size.

    the course of action is to contact rti patient support to work with one of the patient support specialists. you can do this by logging int www.rtilink.com with your cycle ID & pin #'s, then open a help ticket for clinical/patient support, be sure to enter good contact information for the support center staff to contact you.

    regards,
    RTI help.
