Bike Adaptation for Amputee

Designed for a sport cyclist with an above the knee amputation on his left leg, this adaptation allows him to utilize the residual strength in his left leg while cycling. By using a tandem stoker crank set mounted on the down tube and a custom pedal linkage mounted to his socket, the client can place the pedal stroke at it's most advantageous position.


The bicycle adaptation was featured in the 1997 Freewheelin' Magazine article "Solutions for Disabled Cyclists".
