For physical therapist or occupational therapists clinicians the AmTryke will provide an age appropriate, safe, dynamic modality for improving balance coordination, and strength. It's so fun, your clients won't even know they're receiving therapy.
The AmTryke Therapeutic Tricycle Program is about abilities, not disabilities. Our goal is to provide access to all the classic benefits of riding: mobility, strength, exercise, coordination, interaction with family and friends, and just pure fun!
AmTryke makes foot trykes, hand trykes and hand & foot trykes in a wide range of sizes. Nearly every rider can be successful, no matter their diagnosis, through our full line of highly adjustable trykes and myriad of adaptive accessories.
