    In a 2009 study conducted by the Cleveland Clinic, an eight-week program of forced exercise with a trainer on a stationary tandem bicycle — in which patients’ bodies move beyond the extent they can do so themselves — was compared to voluntary exercise on a stationary single bicycle.

    The results showed that the patients on forced exercise had a 35% improvement in motor scores, as well as improved control and coordination of grasping during a bimanual dexterity task. A collaboration between Theracycle and Virginian Outpatient Therapy looks to replicate the study to assess if exercising with a motorized bicycle can improve Parkinson’s symptoms, including rigidity, loss of balance and tremor.
