Meet 14-year-old Sarah who was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and developmental delays when she was 5-months-old. During her life she has faced many obstacles, but the past couple of years have definitely been the hardest. Two years ago Sarah’s father suddenly passed away; right around this same time Sarah underwent Scoliosis Infusion Surgery, which took her an entire year to recover from.
Sarah needed an adaptive tricycle. This year Sarah had hip surgery, and she is still recovering from that. The trike will be very beneficial for therapeutic reasons, as well as a fun way to get exercise. While recovering from her hip surgery, it can be quite painful to use standers and gait trainers. The adaptive tricycle is a good way to get therapy she needs, while not putting to much pressure on her hips and legs.
Have fun on your new trike, Sarah!
