What is an AmTryke?
AmTrykes are therapeutic tricycles that are designed with
children with disabilities in mind. We believe every child, regardless of
their abilities should have the opportunity to ride their own bike.
AmTrykes come in a variety of models. They may be "pedaled"
by using hands and/or feet. To ensure a proper fit, AmTrykes can be adapted
in many ways including frame size and positioning. There are different
seating options available for children in need of head and trunk support.
Equipment is available to keep legs in proper alignment and to prevent knee
scissoring. Even hand and feet placement can be improved with available
adaptive equipment. Though it is a therapeutic tricycle, designed to help
children improve motor skills, provide strength training, and build self
esteem, the AmTryke's most important feature is that it is fun to ride and
offers children the chance of inclusive play with children of all abilities.
Kids just get to be kids.
