Narcolepsy and ebiking


Staff member
According to Wikipedia, "Narcolepsy is a long-term neurological disorder that involves a decreased ability to regulate sleep-wake cycles.[1] Symptoms include periods of excessive daytime sleepiness that usually last from seconds to minutes and may occur at any time.[1] About 70% of those affected also experience episodes of sudden loss of muscle strength, known as cataplexy."

The sudden loss of muscle strength associated with narcolepsy makes cycling on conventional bikes difficult.
