children adaptative tricycle
Ride with your friends!
Most of us have fond memories of childhood bike rides. At Rifton we believe everyone deserves the chance to ride, especially someone with physical disabilities.
And thankfully, even insurers and other funding sources are beginning to recognize that for a person with disabilities, a trike is far more than merely recreational; an adaptive tricycle is often medically necessary for someone who cannot walk independently or who sits for long hours in a wheelchair.
Therapeutic benefits of tricycling:
Lower extremity strengthening
Reciprocal leg motion patterning
Using visual, spatial perception for steering
Social interaction with peers and neighbors
