|These are available to keep feet on the pedals as
required. The footplates are adjustable to accommodate growth and encourage
calf muscle strengthening and response. They also avoid over stretching weak
tendons and muscles. These foot plates feature toe clips and adjustable
straps that secure the foot from twisting or escaping.
DORSIFLECTION CONTROLS :
We can accommodate plantarflexion and dorsiflection problems when footplate
adjustment does not work. Riding without the need for splints may be attained.
Please consult with your physiotherapist. Note: not available on all tricycle
ABDUCTION/ADDUCTION CONTROL :
Now available to eliminate knee lock, rub, or spread. Such conditions, which
interfere with riding, are eliminated by maintaining the legs in a
efficient position while encouraging development of appropriate muscle groups.
The hinged arms parallel the movement of the femur by rotating about a position
in line with the hip joint. This system eliminates the rubbing inherent in
pommel systems while controlling the outward positions which some low tone
clients present. When not in use, the arms swing completely out of the way for
easy entry/exit and for storage. When proper leg alignment has been learned, the
controls are readily removed.
