Hand propelled bikeA 9-year-old child has Proteus syndrome and dearly wants to ride a bike, but cannot pedal. He now has a hand-propelled machine.

A device was required to support the child’s legs, to prevent them from dangling on the ground. This was provided by adapting an old backpack frame, and bolting it to the underside of the seat, and to the bike’s front frame.

A keen sportsman, this child is now able to use his bike along Bexhill seafront.
