Wake up and move.

An award-winning system for early mobilisation.

Latest research recommends early mobilisation from day one, but due to a lack of time and staff, therapy is often not possible, too late, or not sufficient.


The bemo ensures that patients are able to gain movement efficiently whilst still bed-bound. Training can be active with muscle power, assisted or passive with motor support.


The in-bed cycling program improves strength, cardiovascular fitness and metabolism – for better outcomes and reduced length of ICU and hospital stay.


Safe and powerful.

Safe and powerful training thanks to the latest technology.

The THERA-Trainer bemo has a new, safe and powerful drive technology without shearing points, for active, assisted and passive training. Including snap-on accessories and range of movement detection. The system makes safe therapy as easy as child’s play: It supports with an additional sensor for distance detection between trainer and patient, audio-visual signals and an optical positioning aid – so that patients are always safe.

Safe, easy, effective & affordable.

What is the THERA-Trainer bemo?

The THERA-Trainer bemo is a special cycling product designed to allow patients to exercise in a lying position. This makes the device particularly suitable for use in the area of early mobilisation, e.g. in intensive care units. Or in dialysis, where patients are not allowed to stand up for several hours and can hardly move.

How much does a THERA-Trainer bemo cost?

Depending on the configuration and required accessories, the costs for a THERA-Trainer bemo can vary. We will gladly advise you to find out which configuration you need and make you an individual offer. As an alternative to purchasing, we also offer attractive rental and leasing models for our equipment.

Which configuration of the THERA-Trainer bemo is right for me?

This depends very much on the area of application and the patient clientele. Get in touch with us! Our clinical application specialists and product consultants have a lot of experience and can define the right setup with you based on your requirements.

In which settings the THERA-Trainer bemo can be used?

The THERA-Trainer bemo is especially used in the following settings:

  • Hospitals (Acute & Intensive care)
  • Stroke units
  • Inpatient rehabilitation clinics
  • Outpatient rehabilitation centers
  • MS centers
  • Long term care facilities
  • Elderly care homes
  • Gyms


For which clinical conditions, indications is the THERA-Trainer bemo suitable?

The THERA-Trainer bemo is used by patients with the following clinical conditions and indications:


  • Stroke (apoplexy, hemiplegia, cerebral haemorrhage)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Paraplegia (paraplegia, tetraplegia)
  • Muscle diseases (muscular dystrophy, muscular atrophy)
  • Craniocerebral injuries
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Apallic syndrome (coma vigil, aphasia)
  • Infantile cerebral palsy
  • Polio syndrome
  • Guillain Barré Syndrome (GBS)
  • Polyneuropathy (e.g. due to canal spinal stenosis)
  • Rheumatism, arthrosis, arthritis
  • Knee and hip TEP
  • and for many other clinical pictures with movement restrictions.


What is the minimum activity level for training with the THERA-Trainer bemo?

The THERA-Trainer bemo can be used for severely affected patients e.g. in acute or intensive care who cannot yet be mobilized out from the bed. However, an indication for training should always first be determined by the physician or therapist and subsequently accompanied.

What therapy goals are usually pursued with the THERA-Trainer bemo?

The therapy goals that are usually pursued with the THERA-Trainer bemo can vary depending on the individual needs and abilities of the patient. However, here are some typical therapy goals that are targeted with the THERA-Trainer bemo:


Improving mobility: the THERA-Trainer bemo can be used to improve patients’ ability to move. This includes strengthening muscles, improving joint mobility, and promoting coordination and balance.
Restoring motor function: following a stroke, spinal cord injury or other neurological condition, THERA-Trainer bemo can be used to restore motor skills. This may include the ability to perform certain movements, such as reaching for objects or walking.


Increasing endurance: The THERA-Trainer bemo can be used to improve patients’ cardiovascular fitness and endurance. Targeted training on the device can improve physical performance and increase resilience.
Increasing strength: The THERA-Trainer bemo can also be used for resistance training to improve patients’ muscle strength.


Spasticity and Pain management: For patients with spasticity and chronic pain, the THERA-Trainer bemo can be used to provide exercise therapy that can help to relieve. Controlled movements and targeted training can relax muscles and reduce pain.


Promoting independence in everyday life: An important therapy goal with the THERA-Trainer bemo is to promote independence and autonomy in everyday life. This can include improving the ability to get around independently, perform daily activities such as dressing or cooking, and improving overall quality of life.


However, it is important to note that therapy goals are tailored to the individual patient and should be determined in consultation with the treating therapist.

How does the bemo differ from the other THERA-Trainer Cycling products?

THERA-Trainer bemo is special because it is designed for training in a lying or semi-lying position. This is essentially the difference from the other THERA-Trainer Cycling products, such as the THERA-Trainer tigo and THERA-Trainer mobi, which are exclusively designed for training in a sitting position.

How is the THERA-Trainer bemo different from other Cycling products on the market?

The special feature of the THERA-Trainer bemo, compared to other bed bikes, is the unique portal system. It allows the trainer to be driven over the bed or a couch from behind in a particularly easy and space-saving way. In addition, the control is completely electronic. This saves time and energy. As a big plus the bemo has various built-in safety functions, such as optical sensors and emergency stops, which make training safe, especially in sensitive areas such as intensive care units or dialysis. Because of its closed surfaces, the bemo is also very easy to clean and desinfect.

How THERA-Trainer bemo fits into the THERA-Trainer complete solution concept?

The THERA-Trainer bemo can be a valuable component of a THERA-Trainer complete solution in many clinical and non-clinical settings and can be excellently combined with other products from the Cycling line, as well as with products of our Standing & Balancing and Gait line. Explore our Professional Focus Areas to get a better understanding of our Complete Solutions for the lower levels of rehabilitation.


With our THERA-Trainer complete solution, we help you transform our THERA-Trainer devices into an evidence-based, clinically proven treatment concept for lower extremities. The use of our THERA-Trainers simplifies therapists’ work, maximises patients’ outcomes and can be implemented economically and sustainably.


However, instead of arguing with a package deal here, we prefer to tailor your individual THERA-Trainer solution according to your specific needs and circumstances. We agree on milestones and KPIs together. And we take our time for analysis, planning and implementation. Contact us and let our specialists advise you individually.

Can the THERA-Trainer bemo also be used in combination with therapy devices from other manufacturers?

Of course. Naturally, THERA-Trainer products are perfectly matched in terms of their functionality and interoperability. But they can also be used in combination with other existing equipment or equipment from a different manufacturer. Depending on the specific use case, this may even make sense. We have close collaborations with some manufacturers of other products, which allows you to benefit from special offers and bundled deals. Get in Touch with us. We would be happy to provide information on this and share our experience from customer projects.

    Training on an active-passive movement trainer, such as the THERA-Trainer, trains the foot lifter, hip flexor and quadriceps muscle in a targeted manner and is therefore a specific, useful training for MS patients in all stages of the disease, not only for contracture prophylaxis and spasticity reduction.

    Felix Platter Hospital relies on state-of-the-art methods not only in diagnostics, but also in therapy.

    One advantage of training with the THERA-Trainer is that the training stimulus can be set sufficiently high and frequently at home, as it makes perfect sense to train daily or better three times a day.

    From the moment I first started using a wheelchair, the THERA-Trainer has been a constant training device. I first encountered it in the hospital. I then had it prescribed so that I could train at home. In particular I use the cranks for my upper body and arms, so that I can actively maintain and build up my remaining muscles. I try to train with the tigo several times a week.

  • Hannah L.

    star_rating star_rating star_rating star_rating star_rating

    As a powered wheelchair user, the tigo helps me to move both my arms and legs and improve my strength and fitness. When I use it, I can feel my heart rate being raised and I am hoping that it will allow me to regain some of the mobility I have recently lost. The number of adjustments mean that people with many different levels of ability can use a THERA-Trainer. This is adaptive and accessible fitness for all the family!
