Perspectives through Rickshaw Bicycle Chat

Due to the multi-purpose use of the rickshaw bicycle it offers new ways and perspectives for families, (lonely) elderly people, people who do not want to take part in traffic alone any more, and care organizations looking for alternatives for transport.

The chat gives people the opportunity to chat with each other, to chat(s) and to feel mobile again. During a bicycle tour in the Chat Rickshaw Bicycle, passengers can enjoy the comfortable and ergonomic seats, which have been optimized for you by a combination of suspension, proper ergonomics and seat cushions.

They are very maneuverable and much more flexible than when you have to wait for a taxi or bus, and even there you can only be dropped off at one place and then have to get further, for example, to the entrance of the swimming pool. This is no longer an issue with the rickshaw bike — you can use it to the front door and do not need to organize an extra shuttle or worry about how best to get to the other side of the road from the bus station.

Usability of the rickshaw bicycle Chat

Older people have the opportunity to explore their surroundings together with younger or like-minded people and take on the role of a "tour guide", telling stories from the past and thus coming out of their isolation for a while.

However, apart from the fact that the Chat rickshaw bicycle offers a solution for older humans, the Chat is suitable in addition, for humans, who would like to undertake a led bike tour, in addition, for care facilities, families and for example vacation parks.

On the road in Ingolstadt with a new perspective

In Ingolstadt at the Heilig-Geist-Spital the rickshaw bicycle "Chat" was presented by our technical consultant Ulrich Trojer from Van Raam Showroom in the south of Germany. Following we got a message that the Donaukurier from Ingolstadt reported about this. Beside residents and our technical advisor also the old mayor Peter Schnell was present.

With him at their side, the nursing home residents took a short test drive. Mr. Schnell was thrilled and stated that this Van Raam rickshaw bicycle opens up new perspectives for the residents.

The "Heilig-Geist-Spital-Stiftung" (Holy Spirit Hospital Foundation) has started a fundraising campaign especially for the purchase of a special bicycle, so that the senior citizens from Ingolstadt homes can be driven around on request in the future. In the future, after some construction work in the city, two bicycles will already be available in Ingolstadt at the beginning of 2020. For more information read the German article in the Donaukurier.  

Please have a look at the following video of the Donaukurier to see the little test ride.
