Stationary Bike Seat Height for Injury Rehabilitation

The following video demonstrates the principles of starting a patient on a stationary bike during injury rehabilitation.






With many foot injuries, the stationary bike is an excellent rehab tool. No matter where the pain is normally the foot position on the pedal can be adjusted to find a comfortable spot. With many ankle injuries, the seat height can be lowered so that the ankle does not have to bend. When you do lower the seat height, the knees are bent more than normal, and the gears should be eased up abit to have less resistance.
