Over time, we have supported many riders and their families with tricycles which are steered by at attendant. Usually we have seen models of special needs trikes which have a metal tube controlled steering mechanism which is operated from the rear and runs under the rider to the steering assembly.
But what we came to realise early is that this really inhibits the ability to exchange visual cues with the rider. They can’t see you and you can’t see them. Facial expressions, body language even signing for those with hearing impairment could result in missing out on important information which in turn can reduce the enjoyment of the activity.
At EveryBody eBikes, we have designed and fabricated a range of steering mechanisms which can be used alongside the rider, so you can still talk, watch for visual cues and feel you are participating together not separately from the activity. This innovation has been widely lauded by our customer base and we are pleased to be able to provide a side steering option for many of our range.
Call the shop to discuss in more detail how this innovation (patent pending) can make a world of difference to you and your family.
