One of the biggest draws of the Expresso bike is the virtual gaming feature and its ability to attract and maintain rider interest. This has been a big benefit in schools, where keeping a kid’s attention can be a slippery prospect. The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health decided to focus on this benefit and study the effects of exercise, specifically cyber cycling, on behavioral problems in the classroom.
The study, which was published in the 2017 issue of Pediatrics, was conducted at the Judge Baker Children’s Center’s Manville School in Boston, with some pretty impressive findings. While results varied a bit, researchers concluded that aerobic cycling showed promise for significant improvement in classroom function amongst children with complex behavioral problems. In some cases the likelihood for poor self-regulation in the classroom decreased by 51%.
