These specialized therapy bikes from Freedom Concepts Inc contain training wheels and are made specifically for children with mobility hardships. The bikes offer physical and therapeutic benefits and can help unlock kids potential making them gain freedom and independence. Children can have a chance to be social, participate in sports and join life activities.
The second therapy bike was donated to United Cerebral Palsy located in Orlando, Florida (pictures unavailable due to Covid-19 restrictions at the center) and the third therapy bike will be granted to a yet disclosed center.
