Disabled people have more probabilities to face with health problems than people who are without disabilities; especially obesity. Therefore we decided to redesign a leisure bicycle that encourages people to go out and work out enjoyably. We applied the medical mechanism of ‘Elephant bicycle’. It moves your legs as you work your arms back and forth, letting you exercise remedially, unlike the other hand-bikes Which only let you work much on your arms but not on your legs. We designed the hand grip part to look like a ‘C’ to make it most convenient to users, and the slide-up door to reduce discomfort of boarding.
