WA SportsMed Physiotherapy offers a unique and comprehensive service for Cyclists, Triathletes and Mountain Bikers of all ages and abilities. Riders can benefit from the expertise of a Physiotherapist with hands on 'bike' experience, in both the assessment of bike positioning and, the assessment of individual biomechanics.
Sports Physiotherapist Leon Vogels has been involved with professional teams in several roles and is the current preferred provider for WAIS Cycling. Leon is able to relate to real life bike issues including parts, sizing/pricing, athlete goals and the athlete 'psyche.' WA SportsMed Bike Set Up can help a rider get the most out of their body, allowing them to be more efficient and powerful on the bike, while still considering each individual's flexibility and strength limits.
The Bike Set Up and Biomechanical Assessment involves an hour and a half long consult which includes: Measurement of flexibility
- Video assessment of position
- Measurement of the bicycle, and
- Measurement of the rider fit to the bicycle
A written assessment of position and required changes will be supplied and if necessary a follow-up visit for tasks to increase flexibility and control can be organised. Cost $250 (Health Fund Rebates may apply)
