Kaye ToniCross Tricycle for Children with Special Needs JM1
Kaye Products offers the ToniCross™ Tricycles made in France. These tricycles have been especially designed for children with motor disabilities. A great deal of effort in design and manufacturing has been made to make them appropriate for children from 2-1/2 through adolescence. The wide wheel base provides stability. Large wheels and chain drive make peddling easy so that even nonambulatory children ride successfully. The range of accessories makes these tricycles both useful and fun for a wide range of children with various degrees of disability.
The ToniCross™ Tricycles are chair driven from a rear wheel, which places the foot pedals directly under the seat. This provides an easier motion than front wheel drive tricycles. Hand breaks allow the child to pedal backward when necessary for maneuvering in tight spaces.
The tricycles have three accessories. Optional foot supports with ankle and toe straps keep the feet on the pedals so that the reciprocal movements that the child makes in pedaling is directed toward moving the trike forward.
The Optional leg abductors are generally used in combination with the foot supports to align the leg from the hip to the ankle. This accessory controls adduction and internal rotation of the hip.
The Optional back support can be placed low around the pelvis or high around the thorax to provide the needed postural control. Two units can be used on the same upright to provide additional pelvic and trunk support.
Caution: Children should always wear helmets when riding outside and should be supervised.
