RAD-Innovations LLC Introduces the RaceRunner Running Frame Designed for Disabled Athletes with Balance and Mobility Issues
Vermont-based Company Will Help to Develop the Sport of RaceRunning in North America
Cornwall, Vermont – August 22, 2019 – RAD-Innovations LLC is pleased to announce the introduction and availability of the RaceRunner running frame. The RaceRunner running frame is designed for use by individuals challenged with balance, range of motion and mobility resulting from cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, stroke, or amputation, for example. Athletes use running frames to compete in the sport of RaceRunning which is an internationally recognized disability sport. While RaceRunning is established in Europe and gaining interest in other parts of the world, its popularity has been slow to grow in North America.
The RaceRunner running frame is made of aluminum and similar to a tricycle without pedals that supports the athlete as they move. Despite significant physical challenges, most athletes can propel themselves on the RaceRunner running frame considerably faster than they can move unassisted. The low center of gravity and frame design offers stability and poise while running or walking. The saddle unit counteracts lateral sway and can also be used as a seat when at rest. The RaceRunner running frame rolls so freely that even someone who is restricted to a wheelchair can propel themselves by their own efforts.
