COMPANY HISTORY:

TheraTrike specializes in designing and manufacturing therapeutic tricycles and accessories for children with disabilities. Our mission is to create opportunities for independence by providing therapeutic tricycles to children with cerebral palsy and similar disorders. Our products provide benefits for riders with minimal to profound disabilities.

TheraTrike tricycles are uniquely different from other cycles on the market today because of the simple, patented back-and-forth walking motion used to pedal the tricycle. Our therapeutic tricycle was conceptualized by a physiatrist at Primary Children's Medical Center and developed at the University of Utah to utilize the hip extensor muscles (the buttock muscles used in walking) to strengthen and develop gait in children with cerebral palsy and similar disorders. Formal testing and evaluation concluded that use of the tricycle enhanced gait and improved self-esteem. Children enjoy the freedom and ability to participate in everyday neighborhood activities, while parents enjoy the therapeutic benefits of the tricycle for their children. The force required to operate is minimal during either forward or backward travel. The wide base provides excellent stability while the design makes the cycle attractive.

TheraTrike tricycles come in three sizes: Small, Medium and Large. Each one is adjustable to assure the perfect fit for all children from small toddlers all the way up to adult size.

Tricycle Fetish is the only online source for antique tricycle and vintage tricycle information. We have spent numerous hours collecting information on tricycle manufacturers to provide you with a history on your old tricycle. We have included hundreds of antique tricycle photographs from the early 1800's, vintage tricycles from the 1940's to contemporary tricycles of today. We've answered thousands of questions over the years and will continue to help you in your research well into the future. We adore these tricycles just as any child would and collect them ourselves. If you find any helpful information on your tricycle here, please let us know. We love to hear from other tricycle enthusiasts. Send us photos your tricycle restorations or a photo of the trike that is special to you and we'll include it here on the site. We'd also like to include a link to your site if you provide tricycle parts, supplies, repair kits, restoration or any other type of tricycle related service.
