--- CUSTOM ADAPTATION --- PURPOSE: To enable a child who has cerebral palsy to use a toy ride-on tractor. The child was able to pedal the tractor with guidance from a family member, but needed assistance with keeping his feet on the pedals and additional seated support. The existing seat on the tractor was replaced with a molded Sebel seat, raised from the seat platform to enable the child to comfortably reach the pedals. The seat was equipped with a pelvic seat belt with an easy-to-operate buckle. The column for the steering wheel was extended to accommodate the higher seat. Large foot cups with straps were added to the pedals and a wooden push handle was bolted to the back of the tractor. DIMENSIONS: The steering column was extended by 100 millimeters. TITLE: Freedom Wheels. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 25, Number 4, Summer 2005. PAGES: 7. Number of pages: 2 (including cover).
Price: Contact manufacturer.
