Intensive care exercise bike
For all sorts of reasons, some of which I’ll probably work out later, I am moved by the idea of an exercise bike for intensive care patients. It has to do with the revelation that for some conditions (congested lung, or some such) it seems to be important medically. But there’s also the prospect of its lifting the spirits of the patient. When she was alive, I often wondered how I might keep my bed-bound mother active. I sometimes ruminate on my own future in that line. But actually, I am also touched by the idea of all sorts finding relief with such a machine.
