2003) Body Support
The bicycle seat is the best type of seat for pedalling.
The challenge was to design a frame to steady and support the rider who is
sitting on a normal cycle seat. The alternative to our body support is to use a
bucket seat and cut the bottom away to allow for the pedaling motion.
Unfortunately, so much of the seat must be removed that the seat becomes weak
and unsafe. For some physical disabilities, this unit is a must but probably
the most dramatic gains have been with some people with intellectual
disabilities. The `armchair' effect gives them the confidence and security. This unit is easily adjustable (vertically and horizontally) to fit any person
and is fitted with seat and chest belts, and front plate.
2118) Quick Adjustable Bars & Stem
The angle and the height of the handle bars can be altered within seconds. Very useful when a number of people are using the cycle particularly when a back rest or body support is being used.
2119) Adjustable Pedal ArmsLeg movement is one of the big benefits from cycling. Some people have limited movement so this is where the adjustable pedal arms come in by fitting the pedals close to the Axle Center, The circle is small, the bend in the knee is slight and by moving the pedal further from the center the circle is bigger which makes knee bends more. You could have one side with the pedal right out in the normal pedal position while the other side is in a different position and can be moved as the condition improves.
2161CPLQ Leg Support & Foot Leveler.Some children with Cerebral Palsy tend to walk on their toes and will try to do the same while pedaling a bike. The foot leveler stops this and they have to pedal with a more flat foot, also prevents knee knocking.
2002 Foot Support
Comes in Children's , Juvenile and Adult Sizes
Wraps over the front of the foot tightly then the heel strap comes from the centre areound the heel and latches to the velcro at the front to hold the foot on the pedal.
Polypop and Velcro unit which secure hands to handle bars, fishing rod, even the spoon for eating etc.
2111) Push / Stop BarCan be used with any tricycle. Easily removable. With a 12" or 16" tricycle this unit can be used as a steering bar by pushing down on the bar the front wheel can be lifted off the ground allowing the trike to be turned left or right easily by the carer.
2117RT) Rod T Steering NEW
2117T) T Dual Steering Systems ("T" Steering)The teacher/carer can walk behind the cycle and steer it from the back. He/she has a straight back and is in complete control. This position puts the pupil and the forward view of the teacher/carer in the same line of vision. The alternate position has the teacher leaning over the cycle, trying to push it, steer it at the same time, looking at the child, and in front of the trike while trying to prevent the back wheels from going over their feet. A very trying affair. This new concept allows for longer teaching periods as the teacher is comfortable. Designed originally as a teaching aid, the Dual Steering Systems have allowed many more people to be able to enjoy cycling. For example an adult in Shepparton (Victoria), who has difficulty walking and is blind was able to continue cycling (which he loves) by having the carer walk behind, and take over the steering when necessary.
2115) Handlebar Steering SystemANY Tricycles or cycles with outriggers (large superior training wheels). Attaches to the handlebars then goes over the riders head. The bar is easily removable when not needed. Adjustable and transferable to another cycle of similar size.
2115) SMALL STEERING BAR. Suits children cycles 12", 16" and 20"
2116) LARGE STEERING BAR. Suits adult cycles.
2200) Balance BarThis is a very useful tool when a person wants to progress from a cycle with outriggers to a two wheeler. The bar is high so that the teacher/parent walks (with a straight back) behind the cycle and gives support and balance when needed. The high bar also gives greater leverage so that less effort is needed to accomplish the task.
2011S) SADDLE SEATThese have proven to be popular, keeping the rider positioned central in the seat. The width of the seat keeps the legs apart at the top helping to stop knees from crossing. The seat gives more stability often making it unnecessary to use a back rest. This seat is standard on a rabbit but is also available on 16", and 20" bmx tricycles, as well as 20" adult tricycles.
