Making Exercise More Compelling
Bike Labyrinth - Enriching Movement with Interactive Bicycle Tours
When you really think about it exercise can be boring. I have often said to our RehaMove FES Cycling clients that you need to take time for exercise or make time for sickness. However, that doesn't make it enjoyable,
When i saw Bike Labyrinth for the first time I was surprised at just how compelling it was.
What is Bike Labyrinth?
It is an innovative product based on original research in the Netherlands. Its a product that enables people using exercise bikes to make virtual and interactive cycling trips through cities and nature reserves at home and abroad.
The product consists of a large screen HDTV, a tiny computer mounted on the back that holds the extensive route data and some sensors. A crank sensor and two handlebar sensors. With this system, the user can choose from around 200 routes of varying length and environment types.
The screen on which the cycling routes are shown is very simply connected to your RehaMove FES bike or in fact any exercise trainer with pedals.
Watch the sights and sounds of your route go by as you exercise. If you stop pedalling, the cycle route also stops on the screen. If you speed up the scenery goes past rather faster. The images are lifelike and at moments of choice you can choose. which way to go. This way someone can go on a voyage of discovery in a safe environment!

Who uses Bike Labyrinth?
Bike Labyrinth was developed in the Netherlands and is widely used in home environments, care for the elderly, care for the disabled, rehabilitation centres and hospitals.
The aim from the beginning was to generate a realistic cycling experience that makes cycling on an exercise bike much more attractive.
The bicycle routes on the screen provide recognition, distraction and conversation material, so that people can cycle longer and improve their fitness in a relaxed manner. Bicycle labyrinth increases the pleasure of exercise and contributes to the welfare of people.
With the yellow and the blue buttons placed on the handlebars, the cyclist can easily choose a cycling route from the menu. Then at crossroads the cyclist chooses which way to go. If he or she does not make a choice, the route will continue automatically after a few seconds. Street names and famous buildings are highlighted on route
