“More and more therapists and families are recognizing the benefits to be gained from riding tricycles."
Elberton, GA (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined in collaboration with Triad, Incorporated, to offer special needs tricycles for children to a larger consumer base. Known as Triad in the USA, with American headquarters in Cumberland, Maryland, this company is also known as Theraplay Ltd, with headquarters in Scotland, UK. This growing, international company additionally has offices in Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Austria, Greece, Australia, Taiwan and Israel. Triad/Theraplay's design personnel have over twenty years of experience in the design of special needs equipment for children and they focus their creativity and innovation on two basic product groups; special needs tricycles and handcycles.
Triad/Theraplay has continuously manufactured tricycles that are appealing to children and adults of all ages, and these trikes can be used at home, school or for special expeditions. The broad wheelbase and well balanced handling provides the rider with feelings of security, and the extensive range of positional accessories ensure accommodation of even the most physically challenged users. Their tricycles and handcycles offer standard and optional features not found in most similar products on the market, a uniqueness that Triad/Theraplay constantly strives to maintain.
Their tricycles incorporate a choice of three gearing levels for children of varying abilities, and product choices include the Imp, a trike designed for younger children, with a low gear ratio and smaller handlebars; the Terrier, a rugged trike for children 4 1/2 years old and up, with sixteen inch wheels and an alloy caliper brake with a parking brake mechanism; the TMX, a robust trike designed to accommodate larger and heavier children, with twenty inch wheels; and the Tracker, the largest model with twenty-four inch wheels, and designed for teenagers and adults. Most of these trikes have a frame folding mechanism which allows for easier transport, while the TMX and Tracker models also feature a contour saddle seat that allows a more comfortable and stable riding position, keeping the pelvis in the optimum position for efficient pedaling while the raised medial section of the saddle helps to keep the knees separated and correctly positioned as well.
“We are proud to introduce these amazing special needs tricycles to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “More and more therapists and families are recognizing the benefits to be gained from riding tricycles. Not only are they fun, and help to bring families together by sharing enjoyable experiences with each other, but 'triking' also provides wonderful therapeutic benefits through muscle stimulation and cardiovascular exercise, making this activity beneficial for everyone, regardless of age or ability.”
