Accessible Cycling / Wheelchair

Accessible Cycling
Accessible Cycling

The Accessible Tandem Cycle offers a cycling experience for those who use assistive devices for mobility. It functions as both transport and a wheelchair enabling users to cycle, reach the destination and detach the bicycle to enter buildings. This makes the cycling experience more accessible and increases quality of life of disabled users and their caregivers. The attachment system consists of a specially designed wheelchair and bicycle fork that installs on the user’s own bicycle. This reduces the product cost and allows the chair and bicycle to function together or independently. It is an innovative concept with prospect to change lives.
