  • Theracycle Solution: Getting on and off traditional fitness equipment can be difficult for diabetics with mobility challenges adding to the frustration of recommended diabetes exercise. Theracycle’s step through design and its sturdy construction provides optimal stability so you can use the bike for treatment of your diabetes independently and consistently.

    can be an important motivator, particularly for people over 60, according to Vicki Conn, PhD, the associate dean for research at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Mo., who has studied diabetes and exercise.

This whisper-quiet motor assists you even start and complete the full pedal loop even when you have problems with your feet and knees. This motorized assistance helps you stick to your diabetic exercise routine.

    Managing diabetes can be a stressful, time-consuming process. But what happens when you add exercise to the mix?
