Bicycle Seats for Perineal and Prostate Issues, and Other Medical Conditions …
Bicycling is suggested for low impact rehabilitation. The pressure sustained in the hip, groin and knee region make it a difficult asset to use when treating specific injuries. Men and women can suffer bicycle related issues in terms of genitalia function and sensation.
Dual Action Seat
The Dual Action Seat™ is named after its unique design. Whereas most conventional bicycles have one seat, the Dual Action seat, has two separate seats. This allows the groin area in men and women to stay relaxed, alleviating pressure put on the artery responsible for blood flow to the genitalia.
The bike seat pivots horizontally and vertically, allowing the rider maximum comfort and relief of pressure. The rigidity of other bicycle seats can cause soreness and fatigue. The gel foam padding cushions the hamstrings and buttocks, giving a longer range of motion.
Since the seats move independently of one another, the rider will experience each leg dropping and rising, with a longer range of motion, as the seat moves with your hamstrings and buttocks. The slight vertical movements are to auto-correct any hip or lateral movements that would otherwise be absorbed by the rider’s joints.
The Dual Action Seat is manufactured in New Jersey, and is suitable for both moving and stationary bikes.
Hygia Soft Touch
Not ready for the Dual Action Seat – consider the more traditional Hygia Soft Touch bicycle seat.
The Hygia saddle has been manufacturered by Lepper of Holland since the 1940s. It’s designed for people with sitting problems that often arise from a medical condition. The soft, natural leather seat features a luxurious latex filing, a generous spring suspension system, and a relief channel to reduce numbness and pain at pressure points in the lower body.
The natural leather seat covering provides for longer wear and a more pleasant ride. The leather seat cover and special padding conform to your body, and you are less likely to stick to the seat after a long ride as compared with a vinyl covered seat.
The Hygia is imported from Holland by Dual Action Seat.

“I cannot say that sitting on a bicycle seat causes impotency. But I can go on record supporting data to show that sitting on a bicycle seat compresses the artery.” Dr. Irwin Goldstein – leading authority on reproduction systems.
