A serious social problem for people with disabilities is the feeling of being left out. They cannot usually participate when others run, jump, play or ride their bikes. This therapeutic tricycle not only gives the rider the freedom of movement
and builds self-esteem, but it assists with muscle development and improves coordination while making exercise fun.
With the AmTryke, everyone has a chance to feel independent and mobile.
DESIGNED FOR PEOPLE WITH MOBILITY ISSUES
Rotating handlebars are attached to the same chain drive as the foot pedals. This unique drive mechanism provides passive exercise to the weaker limbs. A rider can use hands or feet, whichever are strongest, to propel it. Velcro straps secure the feet to the pedals while torso hip safety belts maintain the rider in the seat. A wide wheelbase and narrow turning radius provide stability. Multiple sizes are available with adjustments that can be made to accommodate the height, weight and reach of each person.
WHO WOULD BENEFIT MOST FROM THE AMTRYKE?Anyone with low muscle tone or paralysis of lower extremities (e.g. spina bifida).
Watching someone on the AmTryke for the first time as they discover a newfound freedom and independence is truly a heartwarming experience.
