Assisting Amputees in the Tampa Area Since 2004
Handcycles are the next step after tricycles. As the amputee grows into a young adult the need for a larger mode of transportation becomes necessary. These handcycles are customized to each user. The majority of our handcycles come from Top End, a highly respected and known provider of mobility devices. The handcycles can function much the same way as the tricycle for the smaller individuals who have outgrown the tricycles. They still provide the physical therapy that is needed. It also is an excellent mobility device for those amputees who have lost both legs and can propel themselves only with their hands. The handcycles are also used at sporting events and racing competitions.
Every child should be able to ride a bike/trike around their neighborhood with their friends. We are helping to make that possible for a small number of children through our association with the Shriner’s Hospital for Children. The tricycles we purchase for our amputees are the ones recommended by the Physical Therapists at the Hospital. The majority of them are made by Rifton. These tricycles provide on-going physical therapy while they are at home and allows the children to socialize and be a member of their community of friends.
