Ebony – Specialist Tricycle
Ebony, 6 has a complex medical condition that affects her mobility has received a speciality tricycle that will allow her to ride outside with her mother.
Ebony is a full time wheelchair user as she can only walk short distances with a walking frame. Her poor balance meant that she was unable to ride a standard bicycle.
Mum, Amy, says her daughter loves the new tricycle saying “Ebony adores the tricycle and we’ve been out on it loads of times since she received it, last week,” she said. “As a result of her condition she is also non-verbal and she’s been signing the word tricycle for weeks, she’s been so excited! Ebony loves arts and crafts, painting, gluing, and any messy stuff really, but she also loves being outside in the garden.”
“The new tricycle has been engineered to make pedalling that much easier, and soon Ebony will be able to pedal everywhere.
“Before they receive a specialist tricycle some children have lots of energy that they are unable to burn off. With this equipment they’re able to do loads of exercise without really noticing it.”
