Leckey MyWay Pedal
A revolutionary elliptical trainer which helps improve strength and functional ability by facilitating pedalling in an upright extended position.
Targets and strengthens anti-gravity muscles
Facilitates movement in an upright extended, rather than flexed, position
Elliptical action provides a sensori-motor experience similar to gait
Leckey Connect App measures progress and motivates child
Explore a new world of improved strength and function
MyWay Pedal is an elliptical trainer which attaches to the size 2 and 3 MyWay frame. It helps improve strength and functional ability and is ideal for giving kids the opportunity to be active and have fun.
MyWay Pedal targets and strengthens anti-gravity muscles to help reduce the risk of hip and knee contractures developing and improve function. Pedalling in an upright extended position targets and strengthens anti-gravity muscles (calf, quads and hamstring)- unlike a trike which encourages a flexed position, the upright position of MyWay Pedal ensures the quads are worked exactly where strength is often lacking, at the end of range. Working the end of range will reduce the risk of hip and knee contractures and limit the potential for deterioration in standing and walking ability.
MyWay Pedal provides a sensori-motor experience similar to gait- it facilitates an elliptical action which is more like stepping, to help support gait therapy goals. Unlike the circular motion of cycling, the elliptical pedalling of MyWay Pedal gives an extended stretch of the lower limbs as it involves a longer forwards/backwards movement rather than an up/down movement. It helps improve loading around the hip to aid joint development.
MyWay Pedal can be used in conjunction with the Leckey Connect App to chart performance and motivate the child. The app provides a valuable way of measuring performance and progress on a child’s speed, distance and duration of elliptical pedalling.
