Handicap accessible bicycle

Project Overview

A Madison area family is in need of a handicap accessible sidecar for a bicycle. The wife sustained a traumatic brain injury several years ago that left her with limited use of her legs and several long term effects on her brain. Her husband would like to be able to go on bike rides as a family. They have requested a sidecar be built, so that she can enjoy bike rides with her family.

Project Status

Fabrication and testing were completed this week. The trailer passed tests such as jackknifing and axle displacement tests. The stability of the pedal bar was found to need improvement, so we will re-fabricate these after presentations before presenting the product to our client.
