In the following you will get to know the Van Raam therapeutic bicycles and you will also learn more about aids, electric motors and experiences of people who have a Van Raam bicycle.

What is a therapeutic bike?

A therapeutic bike is a bicycle that promotes mobility and exercise. A therapy bike also belongs to the product group of mobility aids in the list of aids, but we will come back to this in the course of this article. Therapeutic bicycles have a variety of uses, as tricycles, recumbent bicycles or in special production. Options and accessories such as indicators, backrests and footrests can also have a decisive positive effect on your riding experience and style. These bikes do not only offer healthy reasons to ride them but also many positive aspects which can create a completely new attitude towards life!

Tricycles with two front wheels and one rear wheel

For adults who want a "traditional tricycle" with two wheels in the back and one in the front, but have problems with estimating the width, there is a tricycle with two wheels in the front and one wheel in the back. This means that the rider always has a good view of whether he or she can drive through or past somewhere. This bike comes in two sizes, the Viktoria is the small version and the Viktor the larger.

  • Width easy to estimate
  • Deep entry
  • In two sizes

Tandem therapeutic bikes

With Van Raam tandems you can enjoy cycling together. Because of the low entrance height or the complete lack of an entrance as well as the various options, the tandems are often used with people who are no longer able to cycle independently. Van Raam offers different types of tandems that you can get to know better.

Fun2Go therapeutic duo bike Van Raam

Therapeutic bicycle Fun2Go tricycle tandem

The Fun2Go Duo bike  from Van Raam is a special tandem with three wheels. Because you sit on them side by side instead of behind each other, this bicycle is also called a parallel tandem. On the tricycle tandem, one person is responsible for steering and braking the bicycle. The passenger next to the rider can pedal along, but cannot steer or brake. Thanks to the duo bicycle trailer FunTrain from Van Raam, it is also possible to cycle with several people at the same time.

  • No entry
  • One person steers but both can pedal
  • Perfect attention to the front passenger

Side by side tandems

Therapeutic tandem Kivo and Kivo Plus

The Kivo is a two-wheeled child-parent tandem for one adult sitting in the back and one child sitting in the front. This way the child has a good view of the surroundings. The rider sitting in the back always has a good view of the child from behind. The Kivo has a deep entry and is therefore easy to use. It also has 8 gears and a switchable freewheel as standard. The tandem is also available with three wheels, so if you are looking for more stability when cycling, you should try the Kivo Plus. It has the same functions and advantages as the Kivo, but with three wheels instead of two.

  • Self-determination whether the child can or must pedal
  • Rear person steers
  • Deep entry for both persons

Therapeutic tandem Twinny and Twinny Plus

On the Twinny two-wheel tandem for two adults, ascending and descending is easy thanks to the spacious deep entry. More space has been created between the saddle of the person in front and the handlebars of the passenger, so you don't sit too close together. You can decide for yourself how you want to cycle together. With the optional switchable freewheel, you can decide whether and how your co-driver joins in. The tandem is also available with three wheels, the Twinny Plus. This is a tricycle tandem. It has the same functions and advantages as the Twinny, but with three wheels instead of two.

  • Front or rear steering
  • Adjustable frame height
  • Deep entry for both persons

User experience tricycle Easy Rider - Leo Kostwinder
My name is Leo Kostwinder (64) and I live in Zwolle, the Netherlands. I have been a diabetes patient for over 30 years and in early 2016 I was diagnosed with progressive polyneuropathy *. Since then I am no longer allowed to drive or cycle. This news was difficult at the time, because as a hobby I regularly cycled tours with my racing bike. In addition, I went fishing occasionally. Because of my condition, I stopped working in April 2018.

I am Paula Brommer (47) and I live in Heerenveen, the Netherlands. I'm a mother of 2 children and work as a volunteer at Humanitas Thuisadministratie. I'm not really tall, namely 4.7 feet and I have asthma and fibromyalgia (a condition which you suffer from chronic pain in your muscles and connective tissue). Despite that, I would like to be active and not be classified as 'disabled', because you can't do much about it. In my spare time I like to cycle on my Balance low step through bike and enjoy the surroundings.
