Electric Trikes - Balance and Mobility
Millions of Canadians suffer from balance and mobility issues. Whatever the cause, instability can seriously affect quality of life. Those affected can quickly regress from an avid outdoor enthusiast to a sedentary indoor recluse.
An electric pedal assist three wheel tricycle offers a low cost, stable and easy to use solution that will benefit many of those experiencing mobility or balance issues, resulting in a return to a more active, healthy and social lifestyle.
How do electric tricycles fit into the picture?
Balance and Mobility
Those living with MS, Parkinson’s, Mild-to-Moderate Traumatic Brain Injury (mmTBI), or simply aging, often experience problems with dizziness, gait and vertigo. These symptoms affect people differently and often vary from day to day. The result can be a reduction in confidence and willingness to venture outdoors.
This decrease in activity ultimately leads to muscle weakness, increased spasticity, decreased heart and lung function, pressure sores, depression, social isolation, poor health and more.
The recent introduction of modern Electric Trikes can offer a new lease on life for many afflicted with balance issues. The stability of three wheels and the pedal assist motors will allow many to re-engage in a healthier, more active way of life.
Unlike a traditional two wheel bicycle the rider can remain seated on a slow moving or stationary Trike and when muscle fatigue becomes an issue the motorized Trike can take over and bring the rider home.
eTrikes Canada continues to supply life changing and inexpensive mobility options for Canadians with MS, Parkinson’s Disease as well as seniors, amputees and stroke patients bringing back an element of independence many thought they had lost forever.
