Simply put, adaptive cycles are bikes and trikes that are modified to fit the needs of an individual rider. We all have different abilities and challenges, and there are a wide variety of ways that a bicycle or tricycle can be modified to make cycling possible (and fun!) for anyone.
Beyond recreational enjoyment and opportunities for social interaction, adaptive trikes and bikes can offer therapeutic benefits, including maintaining muscle strength and improving balance skills.
At RAD we specialize in matching you with an adaptive bike that will make cycling enjoyable and safe for you for years to come. We have extensive experience finding solutions for a variety of conditions, including back pains, arthritis, MS, Parkinson’s, SCI, TBI, and stroke. We have also worked with variety of amputees and individuals with complex extremity trauma. Contact us today to find out more.
The Calf Support was redesigned for use with the new Special Pedals. Its unique and ingenious structure provides firm support for the leg but enables the ankle to flex naturally, allowing for a circular pedaling motion.
Pedal with calf support secures positioning of the foot to the pedal, the calf support provides stability for the lower leg and the angle of the ankle. We added padding to the calf support to make wearing it more comfortable.
