Hand bikes

Out and about on a hand bike – mobility, fun and little effort

Hand bikes and recumbent bikes combine therapeutic aspects with a great deal of fun and provide outstanding ergonomics, require little effort and offer a high level of mobility. Thanks to a wide range of adjustment options, they can be individually and optimally adapted. There are virtually no limits to your freedom of movement.

We make a distinction between adaptive bikes and recumbent bikes.

Adaptive bikes

Adaptive bikes are more than “just” a sports device for mobile wheelchair users who enjoy sports. Coupled to the wheelchair, they compensate for the wheelchair's greatest shortcoming, namely its small casters. On an even surface, these small casters provide a reliable service, but as soon as the surface become more bumpy, muddy or snowy, they can drive you mad. An adaptive bike can be an ideal solution in this case.

  • Orthotec Rehabilitationstechnik Sportgeraete Handbike Pro Activ NJ1 e-assistant

    The NJ1 e-assistant always permits easy and independent forward motion with your own wheelchair. The drive system supports you when you are pedalling at the set support level (five support levels) up to 24.9 km/h. The traction device is available with a back pedal brake, which makes its use particularly easy for people with tetraplegia.

  • Orthotec Rehabilitationstechnik Sportgeraete Handbike Sopur Attiude Hybride

    The Attitude Hybrid combines the advantages of a manual bike with the reliability of powered propulsion. Hilly terrain or longer distances are easy to handle with the power motor that can be engaged when you need it. Simply switch on the desired level of assistance and distribute your effort over the whole distance. The powerful 250-watt motor provides a top speed of up to 23 km/h. The14.5 Ah lithium-ion battery guarantees adequate assistance. The display shows the battery charging level and the remaining battery performance.

  • Orthotec Rehabilitationstechnik Sportgeraete Handbike Sopur Attiude Manual

    The Attitude Manual is ideal for those looking to improve their overall stamina and strength through recreational cycling or those looking for a manual adaptive bike for their leisure outings. The 20” drive wheel and the 30-speed gear system provide an exceptional driving performance, which is suitable for all terrains. The bike is lightweight and easily manoeuvrable, which makes it the perfect complement to an active wheelchair.

  • Orthotec Rehatechnik Elektro Hilfsantriebe Sopur Attitude Power

    With its simple docking mechanism, the ATTITUDE can be attached to and removed from the wheelchair in seconds, which is ideal when you have no time to lose or are in a rush. The locking mechanism attaches securely to the front of the wheelchair. The only parts that are permanently attached to the wheelchair are two light pins with a diameter of 2 cm on the front of the wheelchair frame.

  • Orthotec Rehabilitationstechnik Sportgeraete Handbike Batec Manual

    Propulsion using pure muscle strength without electric assistance. The small turning diameter makes this adaptive bike ideal for getting about town as well as for short distances. Thanks to the BATEC EASY-FIX anchor system, the adaptive bike can be removed in just seconds and the manual wheelchair can be used as always.

  • Orthotec Rehabilitationstechnik Sportgeraete Handbike Batec Hybrid

    The practical 2-in-1 solution that has revolutionised outdoor mobility without losing the advantages of the manual wheelchair. The motor gives the user the necessary power to perform the cranking movement required to get everywhere. Thanks to the BATEC EASY-FIX anchor system, the adaptive bike can be removed in just seconds and the manual wheelchair can be used as always.

  • Orthotec Rehabilitationstechnik Sportgeraete Handbike Stricker Lipo Smart

    The main focus of the Lipo Smart models is on sport and fun. In addition to the muscle activity from cranking with the arms, the 250-watt motor provides assistance for rapid propulsion. As an option, up to three lithium-ion batteries can be engaged, which means that extremely long distances (about 40 km per battery, depending on the driver, terrain, setting and surface) can be covered. The level of assistance can be set continuously. In addition, three levels of speed can be pre-selected. The adaptive bikes have a setting-off aid and can also be optionally equipped with extra batteries, a coaster brake, fittings for tetraplegia (such as chin controls and tetra handles), shopping basket, etc. The speed with full assistance is between 23 - 25 km/h. The hybrid drives come in two versions: Stricker Lipo Smart PARA for people with good hand function and Stricker Lipo Smart TETRA for people with restricted hand function (chin controls, coaster brake, special handles, lower gear on hills)

Recumbent bikes

A recumbent bike speeds over the asphalt, just a few centimetres above the ground. Compared to the upright adaptive bike, it is plain to see that the essential purpose of a recumbent bike is to move fast in a race.
