Special needs bike for invalid person
A special needs bike is a different type of bike than the traditional bike with two wheels. Sometimes cycling on a traditional two-wheeler doesn't seem to work anymore. In the search for another means of transport, an adapted bicycle can be a solution.
A special needs bike can help an invalid person to cycle (again). A tricycle is such a good and safe alternative. A tricycle, for example, provides stability and thus creates a feeling of safety while cycling. A multi-person bike is suitable if you can no longer cycle independently and would like to cycle together with someone else.
Special needs bikes often have the possibility to be extended with various options and accessories, so that the bike fits an invalid person. After all, each disability is different and everyone has different needs, so a special needs bike is available in many different versions.
E-bike for invalid
Cycling fully on one's own power can often be a challenge for an invalid person. You can choose to go for an electric bike. An invalid bicycle at Van Raam is often also possible as an e-bike and can be extended with pedal support. Van Raam has developed its own pedal support system, which is called the Silent System.
This system is characterized by:
Easy to operate
3 support modes
A starting aid and the possibility to cycle backwards
The possibility to cycle with the Van Raam E-Bike App
Fairly noiseless, but very powerful motor
High quality and safe battery
Tricycle for invalid person
A tricycle can be the right invalid bicycle for people who cannot or no longer want to ride a regular two-wheeler or for people who are afraid of falling while cycling. A tricycle can be a solution for an invalid person, because the tricycle (almost) always remains upright. The tricycle is therefore very suitable for people who have difficulty keeping their balance.
When getting on or off the bike and during a stop you don't have to hold and keep a tricycle in balance or get off the bike.So at a traffic light you can stay on the tricycle and keep both feet on the pedals.
These are the different types of tricycles at Van Raam:
Low entry tricycle
Tricycle with two wheels at the front and one wheel at the rear
