Any Recommendations Or Preferences??
I can't get round on a recumbant bike yet, I am at 94 degrees ROM (just). I find the stationary bike easier myself. Can you try one or both at PT before you buy?
Hope all is going well with you following your MUA. I purchased a regular stationary bike two days prior to my TKR, but will be returning it for a recumbant this weekend. I have been using it at home but am using a recumbant bike at P.T. and find I like it much better. My P.T. did say that a recumbant would be better for therapy following TKR. Either would be fine though.
I tried them both when I started therapy. The recumbent is much more gentle on the uh, rear end.
But, I get a better workout and can drive down harder with a regular bike. I get off every five mins to lower the sear, and stretch the leg.
I use the regular one at PT. If I buy one it will be recumbant because it looks easier to get on and stay on. At PT I tell them that I could do an hour as opposed to minutes if the seat were more comfortable. My butt quits before my knees.
Thanks!!! Think recumbant sounds good (gotta go easy on the buns)
Butt (pun), you sit on the motorcycle seat, you might be good with either.
How's your knee feeling today Char? Are you still free of the tight band feeling around your knee? I would so love to be free of that. I see my OS on 13th to see if I have to have an MUA.
