---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To provide a custom adaptation for a child with difficulties in supporting herself in the standing or sitting position; which allows her to ride her tricycle while providing firm support to hold her upright and her feet in place. The back support is built from 1/16 inch by 1 ½ inch metal strapping welded to the vertical tube just under the sat and shaped to provide a vertical “post” just behind her back. The vertical portion is in two parts with a series of holes on the center of each so that it can quickly be adjusted up or down to suit her future growth. At the top of the vertical bar is the curved horizontal support, made from the same strapping. The whole unit is covered with foam pipe insulation held in place with nylon ties. At the top and bottom are adjustable quick connect canvas straps to provide the "seatbelt" that holds her in place. Her feet are held in place by Velcro straps in wooden supports bolted to the pedals. TITLE: The Tricycle Back Support. WEBSITE: Workshop Solutions.
