How come can I pedal?

COGY, cycling chair does not use electricity. User has to use their own legs to move. But on COGY, the slightest amount of strength is enough to pedal. There are mainly 2 reasons why pedalling COGY is so easy. One is mechanical design (gear etc). 2nd is the idea of activating CPG.

Central Pattern Generator

In case of repetitive movement like walking or chewing, once the action starts, it keeps on by CPG circuit, without signal from brain. When we walk, the CPG in the spinal cord generates the signals from one leg to the other. COGY is designed to make an efficient posture for activating this CPG cycle.

Not just FUN

-cardio-vascular benefit
