Has your medical advisor just told you that pedalling on a stationary bike will be beneficial?
And – you are willing to add more activity to your life but don’t want a full size stationary bike cluttering up your living room?
Here is the solution used by thousands of seniors all over the world
Why Seniors are told to buy a Stationary Bike
Pedalling is a common prescription for the following needs:
- Edema. Often pedalling is suggested to keep the fluids from settling in the lower legs.
- Knee or hip problems where daily mobility is expected to be beneficial.
- General fitness for people who are sedentary. Whether you live at home or in an assisted living facility.
- Intradialytic Pedallers for pedalling during home dialysis treatments
Fortunately there is an alternative to the big stationary bikes. They are called mini-pedallers and can be pedalled comfortably from your favourite chair.

Choosing the right pedaller for you will depend on your physical and economic needs. You also might consider where you will be most comfortable and likely to use it.
The most commonly suggested pedallers can be used for arms and legs. Is this a feature you would like?
Do you want to use it while sitting in your favourite lounging chair?
Do you need it to be quiet?
How heavy can you lift? Do you need it on wheels?
Do you need it to fold up and put away?
There are several considerations when choosing a senior mini-stationary bike.
