George is an 18-year-old who has Down syndrome and moderate mental retardation. Riding a bicycle helps George increase his physical activity and overall health, but a traditional bicycle doesn’t provide the extra support he needs. An adaptive tricycle like the Miami Sun 3-wheel bicycle would not only give George extra support and increased physical activity, but also would also help increase his motor skills and therapeutic value.
However, his family’s insurance wouldn’t cover the cost of the adaptive trike. HCCI stepped in and purchased the trike for George so now he can increase his physical activity and work on his therapeutic and motor skills.
