CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a customized bicycle for a teenager with cerebral palsy and developmental delays. An evaluation of the teenager with disabilities determined the only modifications needed were a larger seat, outrigger wheels, and foot cups. The new-design outrigger wheels can be easily removed and reattached, making transport and storage much easier. While the modifications were minor, the results were major. The consumer is now able to get necessary exercise while doing an activity he enjoys, and spending quality time with his family (bicycle riding). TITLE: Riding with the Family. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 28, Number 3, October 2008: p. 10-11. PAGES: 3. (including cover).
