Electric Bikes and Light ATV for Riders with Cerebral Palsy

Ideal Electric Bike or Light ATV for Riders with CP

 

The term cerebral palsy (CP) refers to a group of non-progressive neurological disorders that appear in infancy or early childhood and permanently affect body movement, muscle coordination, and balance. The most common symptoms are involuntary muscle movement, limp or stiff limbs, and exaggerated reflexes. Ability levels and severity of the condition vary from patient to patient.  While one individual with CP might not require special assistance, someone with severe CP might be unable to walk and need extensive, lifelong care.

 While there is not as much research on exercise for adults with CP, there are extensive studies published on the benefits of exercise and recreational activities for children with CP in not only improving and maintaining physical health, but also in enhancing psychological and emotional well-being.  

 

 The Outrider is an ideal option for individuals with CP both in adolescence and into adulthood. With its three-wheeled recumbent platform, it corrects for any balance issues associated with CP and the various configurations allows people with CP to choose which option is best suited for their physical wants and needs.
