SPECIAL NEEDS BICYCLES AND TRICYCLES – NDIS Provider number 405 003 6980
Electric bicycles and tricycles lend themselves to people with special needs.
These people would love to enjoy the freedom of a bicycle or tricycle but due to limitations in strength, movement, balance or another challenge need a little help.
At Blind Freddy Electric Bikes we take these needs seriously and develop purpose built cycles. We work with you to capitalise on strengths and overcome these limitations.
We are also a registered Queensland Government Community Aids Equipment & Assistive Technology Initiative (CAEATI) Prescriber. Vendor Reference CS590483.
Imagine a child with limited core strength being able to cycle with his or her friends. Some of our special needs customers now ride to school.
- Limited leg rotation is overcome with step pedal motion or adjustable crank radius.
- Back weakness is compensated with back rests on tricycles.
- Ankle weakness with self-levelling pedals.
- Leg weakness with Special needs pedals.
- Pelvic and backrest belts on tricycles for security
- But best of all an electric motor on some models to help on the hills and generally make the ride easier while still providing exercise.
- Remote kill switch option on electric assisted bikes or tricycles provides carer control up to 300M from the rider (enables motor cut off and restart)
