Some of us had the great opportunity to go to the CyberBike in Lyon again this year. This is a two-day event where various interested parties come together and the latest technologies regarding Functional Electrostimulation (FES) are discussed. A lot of knowledge was exchanged between the present teams.
On the first day a conference was organized. Professors from all over the world were present. Interesting presentations have given rise to new ideas, such as using a burst frequency at the start of cycling with FES on the legs, other placement of electrodes and whether or not to stimulate the hamstrings. The second day a cycling race was organized, creating a sporty atmosphere. The mutual competition was fuelled by a friendly competition on the FES bicycle. This ensured a nice and sporty end to the weekend.
