Donations provide new therapy bikes at Gundersen St. Joseph's

Two new, state-of-the-art Schwinn Airdyne AD Pro bikes are now available for use by patients of Gundersen St. Joseph's therapy department thanks to generous donations from Hillsboro residents, Sharon Nelson and Ann and Kirby Wong.

The new bikes are a welcomed addition to the already extensive range of exercise equipment available at Gundersen St. Joseph's. The bikes boast a range of features such as anti-corrosion construction, multi-position hand grips and optimized controls for resistance. "These bikes are perfect for improving a patient's range of motion, they are particularly good where strengthening and stretching of the knee joint is an important part of a patient's rehabilitation," says Ashley Thayer, director of rehabilitation services at Gundersen St. Joseph's.

The bikes were made possible through donations from Sharon Nelson, who donated in memory of her late husband, Mike, and Ann and Kirby Wong, who donated in memory of Ann's late mother, Elsie Sebranek. "Mike and Elsie would be so proud," says Sharon, as she pedals the bike in unison with Ann.

"These bikes will see a lot of use over the coming years and we are incredibly thankful for the donation. I knew Elsie and Mike, they were great patients to work with, these bikes are a great tribute to both of them," concludes Ashley.
