DER WASSERLÄUFER

iF concept design award

DER WASSERLÄUFER is an innovative aqua bike, which is based on the principles of aquatic training and can be used for holistic mobility training, focusing on coordination, balance, and strength. The person exercising sits on a floating body and pedals in chest-high water. This trains the user’s sense of balance and stimulates the muscles, while exercising in the water increases the fun factor and adds variety to the training routine. The interaction of all these aspects: the comfortable atmosphere in the water, the integral exercising of the body, and the pleasure of doing sports will have a positive influence on your well-being.

"We cannot yet walk on water. Nevertheless, this aquatic bicycle unites numerous ergonomic features into an attractive holistic package to successfully combine the art of keeping fit with the act of having fun."
