Before your amputation you might have been a keen road or mountain biker and you have now decide you have aspirations to once again compete in the beautiful Cape Argus Cycle Tour, tackle the mountain trails on your doorstep or take a leisurely ride on the promenade or your local streets. These activities may have also been a dream of yours which you never got to complete.
The good news is that this is all may be possible on your day to day lower limb prosthesis whether its road, mountain or stationary cycling. Above knee or throug knee amoutees will require a knee that either has a cycling mode or be a frees swinging knee joint. However, should you be an upper limb amputee, a specialised prosthesis will be required for you to once again pursue this sporting activity. Yes, you can cycle with just one arm, however experience has taught us that have the second point of contact on your handlebars makes you feel that much more in control. The ARM-XR is one of the heavy duty Above Elbow (TH) prosthetic Elbow joints available for both mountain biking and motocross.
