What is a handbike?

The handbike is a device that is attached to the front of the wheelchair and whose objective is for the user of the chair to move, either by activating the mechanism with their hands from the handles like a bicycle (manual handbikes), either with the accelerator located on the grip as a motorcycle (electric handbikes). There is also the possibility of having a manual handbike with electric assistance, like electric bicycles (hybrid handbikes).

Therefore, it can be said that there are the following types of handbikes:

Types of handbikes

  • Manual handbike
  • Electric handbike
  • Hybrid handbike

Manual handbikes are intended for those people who are in a wheelchair but who do not want this to be a hindrance to doing sports and want to exercise the upper body either by taking walks or doing a superior exercise and even competition. For their part, electric handbikes are aimed at autonomous people in wheelchairs who do not want to move by using their hands to operate their manual wheelchair, but prefer to move with the comfort of a motor.
