A sortie (from the French word meaning exit) is a deployment or dispatch of one military unit, be it an aircraft, ship, or troops, from a strongpoint. The sortie, whether by one or more aircraft or vessels, usually has a specific mission. The sortie rate is the number of sorties that a given unit can support in a given time. The term is an evolution of the concept of “sortie” in siege warfare.
In military aviation, a sortie is a combat mission of an individual aircraft, starting when the aircraft takes off and ending on its return. For example, one mission involving six aircraft would tally six sorties.
Rehabilitation with a Power Bike
Not only are Power Bikes great fun to ride, they can also help rehabilitation. It has been known for a long time that gentle exercise following an illness or surgery can accelerate the healing process. What better way than to do your exercise on a Power bike.
On a Power Bike the action is the same as a stationary exercise bike but much more enjoyable and in the fresh air. You can choose what level of assistance you require, from very easy to quite hard. You have the option to reduce the power level as your movement and strength improves.
This makes a Power Bike an ideal rehabilitation tool, helping you rebuild muscles and improve movement in joints without causing undue stress and strain.
Most of our customers that have bought a bike for rehabilitation purposes carry on using them long after they have recuperated, as they have enjoyed the freedom and exercise a Power Bike has given them.
Many are recovering from knee and hip surgery, broken bones from an accident or fall, muscle injuries, cardiac issues and a variety of other ailments. Sometimes it is just simply a case of wanting to build up general strength and fitness. Always take medical or appropriate professional advice before embarking on a fitness program.
