This project is for students with severe multiple impairments and unable to attend a traditional school setting. The students have many medical needs that require them to spend a large portion of their life in a hospital setting, at doctors appointments, in treatments and confined to home due to vulnerability to illness. These students are not able to use a traditional bike that would be affordable but with adaptive equipment, they can use a specialized bike to engage in the same activities as their peers and participate in activities along side their family and friends.
All kids should have a bike, even those with a disability. The students that will be utilizing this bike are students that spend a large majority of their time in a hospital, at doctor's appointments and confined to home due to medical vulnerability. On the days these students are feeling well enough, they deserve an opportunity to play outside alongside family and friends. The adaptive bike will give them this opportunity and provide hours worth of fun and joy while spending time with those he/she loves. It will create memories, provide therapy, improve strength and provide improved happiness and qualify of life.
