Gentle exercise with an eBike is ideal for people suffering from arthritis, for example, or following knee or hip surgery. “The person's body weight is predominantly supported by the saddle, handlebars and pedals,” explains physiotherapist Elmar Radzik. “In the case of pedelecs, the drive unit prevents loading peaks at the knees and within the thigh muscles. This reduces strain on the joints, ligaments and tendons.”
