Exercisers, Aerobic, Stationary Bicycle

Definition : Aerobic cycle exercisers designed to simulate the motions of riding a bicycle; the bicycles remain stationary while the wheels move. These exercisers are usually self-powered devices; they may use friction belts or wheels, magnets, fans, or hydraulics to increase resistance. Some stationary bicycles may include a motor to regulate speed. The bicycles usually include workout program modes that can adjust resistance and a monitor to display the workout time, distance, speed, calories burned, and heart rate; they often have handlebars with grip pulse sensors, and some bicycles have heart-rate controls that can adjust the resistance level to suit the targeted heart rate. Stationary bicycle exercisers are intended to increase cardiovascular endurance by keeping the heart and pulmonary rate elevated for a continuous period of time. Additionally, they provide strength and endurance to the lower-limb muscles (e.g., quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, gluteus). Dedicated bicycles with upright and recumbent sitting positions for users are available.
