The cycling exercise provides quadriceps rehabilitation while controlling the stresses to the knee ligaments. With pedaling on the bicycle, forces are applied to the anterior cruciate ligament, the capsular ligaments, and the posterior structures of the knee joint. The knee muscles can modify their forces. In most cases, one of the knees is damaged and undergoes surgery and rehabilitation. In such cases, the injured leg must be rehabilitated the use of bicycle workloads is limited to the tolerance range of the injured leg and the healthy leg must be trained in low workload. In elite athletes who have to come back to competition as fast as possible, this situation causes a loss of strength and fitness for healthy foot. The Magnetic Stationary Bike with simultaneous different workloads for each footcan create a condition for each leg to be trained simultaneously in its own workloads.
