Improve your daily life
Riding the Go-Tryke arm-leg bike outdoors is motivational. Instead of training alone on a stationary device, go for a walk with your friends and family while rediscovering landscapes, which were often inaccessible to you.
The review of the scientific literature shows that for people (multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, etc.) who have relevant indications, an improvement in daily activities, functional performance and quality of life related to health.
Multiple sclerosis? Recharge your energy and improve your abilities!
Deficiencies in the body's regulatory mechanisms are generally reversible through exercise such as Go-Tryke cycling. There is strong evidence for the value of physical training for people with multiple sclerosis. Participation in physical activity and exercise has been shown to improve aerobic capacity, fatigue, gait, cardiovascular comorbidity, balance/stability, and health-related quality of life.
Prescription of exercises for patients with multiple sclerosis; potential benefits and practical recommendations
“Appropriate exercise can lead to noticeable and significant improvements in different areas of the condition cardio-respiratory(aerobic fitness), theMuscular force,flexibility, balance, fatigue, cognition, quality of life and respiratory functionin patients with MS.

Paraplegia? Get your legs moving with the Go-Tryke bike
The importance of physical activity for people with spinal cord injuries is indisputable. There is growing evidence that participation in exercise and sport promotes the physical and psychological well-being of people with spinal cord injury.
With the practice of the Go-Tryke, exercise opportunities for paraplegics are made possible. The combination of arms and legs optimizes the training response as shown by the higher maximal oxygen consumption compared to upper limb exercises alone.
Is aerobic exercise beneficial for people with quadriplegia following spinal cord injury?
This study analyzed that "the physical activity of the population with spinal cord injuries is 40% lower than that of the able-bodied population. Consequently, people with spinal cord injuries are often less physically active and run a higher risk than their able-bodied peers to suffer from many secondary health problems, including cardiometabolic and vascular diseases.
GBY SWISS and its research on movement
GBY and BFH – together at the heart of the economy and serving people!
“At Bern University of Applied Sciences, we invest in education, R&D and create knowledge. Our goal is to transfer this knowledge to the economy and to implement it in demanding projects, so that society benefits directly. For this we rely on professional and reliable partners – like GBY. With high quality innovative devices and products, GBY offers greater autonomy to people with reduced mobility; their daily life is made easier and new leisure activities open up to them. »
Dr. Lukas Rohr, director department Technical andIT BFH-TI,
Bernese University of Applied Sciences, Biel
We work in partnership with the University of Lausanne (UNIL) on movement and sport. Thanks to this partnership we analyze the different movements and their benefits on health, rehabilitation and sport.
GBY and IAT Innovation for Wheelchair Users
“The Innovation Center for Assistive Technologies of the Swiss Paraplegic Foundation deals with technical developments aimed at making life easier for people with reduced mobility.
In addition to our own developments, we support first-class innovative ideas that are introduced or implemented by external idea providers. GBY SA's GO-TRYKE® Easy project is one such idea worth supporting.
The GBY team has a high level of competence and expertise, which guarantees quality and benefit for those involved. »

GBY collaborates with major research players
“Medical discoveries are no longer the product of a brilliant individual. They now require close collaborations between scientists, doctors, engineers and industries — in short, multidisciplinary teams that achieve together what would be impossible by the sum of each.
Our meeting with Sebastian Tobler and GBY illustrates this synergy wonderfully. A passionate person at the head of an innovative company that collaborates with engineers from EPFL, doctors from CHUV and other industries such as GTX medical to imagine solutions that improve the lives of people suffering from motor deficits. A beautiful story that is just beginning. Ahead. »
