Sander Koomen

At the end of October our athlete Sander cycled 1.9 km with the help of FES on the road outside. We are proud of the progress that our athlete is making. Sander is currently working on a two-week power training to improve muscle strength in his legs, hopefully it will also improve the cycling speed. In addition to this training, Sander is also experimenting with different crank lengths to see what works best for him.

Reade

Soon we will go to Reade to try out the influence of the (extra) stimulation of the m.Rectus Femoris in one of our athletes through an extra channel, but also to determine the optimal stimulation frequency. This is to determine a protocol that fits in as well as possible with the task, FES-cycling, that must be performed during the Cybathlon. Hopefully this brings us a step closer to setting the fastest possible time!
