hand cycle for stroke

by Sharon
(Connecticut)

Question: Looking for a hand arm bicycle. Her left hand is just starting to show movement with the thumb and pinkie, so she cannot grip. Is there anything I can use to secure her left hand onto a hand cycle so she can move it around in circles. Please advise.


Answer: Ace bandage usually works well. Just make sure the hand is securely wrapped and that the movement of the bike is not painful to the hand/arm in anyway. Make sure the pedaling is controlled and not causing the affected arm to be flung around.
