The walking aid City and low entry bike Balance are Van Raam bikes with two wheels
Difference between Van Raam two-wheeled bikes and tricycles
If you no longer manage to cycle on a standard two-wheel bike, you will look for an alternative. This alternative can be an adaptive bicycle. It's up to you what kind of adaptive bike is suitable for you. If you have trouble keeping your balance, a tricycle might be a bike that suits you. On a tricycle, you cycle very differently than on a two-wheeler, so this requires some practice. On a bike with two wheels, it is important that you are able to keep your balance yourself. A modified (electric) bike with two wheels may be an option if cycling on a regular (electric) bike is no longer possible. A special needs bike with two wheels is unique because of, for example, a low entry, a specially developed frame or the possibility to adjust the bike to your wishes.
Van Raam's tandems are used to enjoy cycling together. Because of the low step-in and the various options, the tandems are often used with people who can no longer cycle independently. Van Raam has tandems with two wheels, but also with three wheels. On a tandem with three wheels it is easier to keep your balance, in fact, you always remain stable in an upright position. However, a three-wheel tandem is very different from a two-wheel tandem. If you are still able to keep your balance together, then a two-wheel tandem is the solution.
On the walking aid City you do not make a standard cycling movement, but a walking movement. The walking aid is a two-wheeled tandem that is suitable for people who have difficulty walking or have problems standing for long periods of time. A wheelchair is not yet necessary and a walker is not preferred. Because this bike has two small wheels instead of three, it is very manoeuvrable and compact.
