---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a custom adapted bike modification for a child with spastic diplegia. The boy’s condition mainly affects his lower limbs but he is still able to walk short distances using a walker and his motor skills and strength in his left hand are also affected. The bike did not require extensive modification as the child has reasonable upper body strength. The bike modifications include a wider seat and outrigger wheels, plus a high-riser bar with padded back support plate and a pelvic strap. Additionally, the bike includes toe clips to keep the child’s feet securely on the pedals, and the hand brake is located on the right side to suit the use of the stronger right hand. TITLE: Happy riding. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 31, Number 1, Summer 2011: p. 15. PAGES: 2 with cover.
