Best of all, easy adjustments can be made for a child's growth in size as well as growth in riding ability. To determine if the Imp pediatric adaptive tricycle will appropriately fit your child, simply compare the inseam measurement to the Imp's target range. The inseam range for a child using the Imp is 12in.-15in. (32-39.5 cm).
The dual axle drive system helps to reduce resistance when pedaling, making it easy for a child with low muscle tone and decreased strength to ride the tricycle. This dual-axle special needs tricycle is outfitted with a low ratio 1:1 fixed gear, which means that for one revolution of the pedals there is one revolution of the wheels. The fixed gear design enables the child with special needs to start moving the tricycle easily, put the tricycle in reverse, and slow down if going too fast!
The Imp special needs tricycle combines a modern style design with comfort and safety features that are sure to enhance a child's strength, self-esteem and FUN!!! The Imp's stability is built into the frame with a low center of gravity and a broad wheelbase, helping to prevent tipping. An adjustable steering stop is another stability feature the Imp offers to help control the turning circle of the special needs tricycle.
