Intradialytic Cycling Equipment 

There are several exercise bikes that can be used to allow patients to cycle during dialysis.

  • Free standing bikes
  • Exercise bikes that attach to the therapy bed/chair
  • Exercise bikes for use with therapy chairs only

What you choose for your renal unit will depend on:

  • Budget
  • Type of therapy beds/chairs available in the unit
  • Storage space
  • Time available for bike set up

Please consult our document for examples of exercise bikes available: Examples of Intradialytic Exercise Bikes.
