1909 : MANUFRANCE ST ETIENNE, a famous old French company, installed an innovative back-pedaling on its “Hirondelle” bikes: By pedaling backwards, ManuFrance has calculated that the minimum useful force is 20kg while it
is only 5kg at the place. Several mountain races have been won thanks to this principle.

2016 : Birth of KORELE 8000, the result of collaboration between Dr Michel KOCH and Thierry LEDROIT, former CEO of TM TechMed. KORELE 8000 is the first recumbent ergometer with automatic “REVERSE” pedaling and electric sit / stand assistance.

Benefits of reverse pedaling :

  • Better venous return by stimulation of the plantar venous pump
  • Better muscle building
  • Knee joint relief
  • Increased patient pleasure and relaxation
  • Work all the muscles by alternating the two directions of pedaling
  • Better suited to people not used to pedaling

  1. 1
    Patented reverse pedal ergometer

    At any programmed load, the patient can change the direction of pedaling, making it possible to alternate pedaling, which is very important in rehabilitation.

  2. 2
    Large touch screen

    The load control system can be used with the 18 customizable internal programs or driven by an external ECG / effort system.

  3. 3
    Ergonomic pedal

    Effective heel lock.

  4. 4
    Trendelenburg support

    The quick release of the horizontal backrest and the positioning of the legs on this support allow immediate Trendelenburg position.

  5. 5
    Adjustable height

    The electric height adjustment allows the best adjustment of the pedal height according to the morphology and helps obese or poorly mobile patients to sit up and stand up.

  6. 6
    Very low threshold

    No frame to step over, the KORELE 8000 is accessible to all.

  7. 7
    Comfortable electrically adjustable seat

    The seat is firm and comfortable. An extension on the front allows use for obese people up to 250 kg. The front-to-back adjustment is now electric, effortless.

  8. 8
    Airy backrest

    The backrest in two parts allows efficient ventilation of the back, which is particularly useful during exercise.

  9. 9
    Seat extension

    Two retractable wings on each side allow the width of the seat to be adjusted.

  10. 10
    Backrest extension

    Two retractable wings on each side allow the width of the backrest to be adjusted.

  11. 11
    Handlebars with height and pedaling distance adjustment

    Two handles with adjustable positions allow the patient effective support during exercise. At the end of each handle is the seat height and fore/aft adjustment control to effortlessly adjust the pedaling distance.

  • Cardiopulmonary re education
    The benefits of “reverse” pedaling have long been mentioned,
    making muscles work eccentrically with low O2 consumption The “sit-stand” assistance facilitates access to the device for difficult patients (obese, reduced mobility, etc).
  • Stress test
    The pedaling comfort and easy access to the device allow difficult patients to perform the test in complete safety and to the fullest of their ability.
  • Scintigraphy
    The very rapid switch to Trendelenburg allows the test to be carried out in complete safety.
    The continuous adjustment of the seat is particularly suitable for infusions and blood pressure measurements.
