    Question Wheelchair Connected HandCycle

    I have been looking for handcycles for my brother. After looking at hundreds I found a type that might be the best for for him. I have only found one company and it looks like they to not have a distributer in the US.

    The handlebar and front wheel assembly attach to a wheelchair.

    I am including a link to a You Tube video that I found of the type I'm looking for.

    Thank you in advance for any input.

    Here's an excellent source.
    Clip-on.
    Rio Mobility Attachable Handcycle - The Handcycles, Wheelchairs, Recumbents and more..Roll with us!

    Chair style (rather than recumbent) handcycle
    Top End Excelerator Stock Handcycle - The Handcycles, Wheelchairs, Recumbents and more..Roll with us!

    These are only 7 or 8 speed units. Unless your brother lives in a flat area, he'll need something with more gears.
    Can he use a recumbent handcycle? There's a much wider range of gearing available.

    Those are very clever. Turn the wheelchair into a trike.

    The Rio attachment is only for a solid-framed wheelchair.

    From the product description.
    Designed to fit most folding/ rigid, adult and pediatric chairs.

    I'm going to see if I can find one the Rio's. I'd like to see one in person. It looks very promising.

    Thanks.

    Contact your local disabled sports association they maybe able to point you in the right direction. I have a Quickie Shake 27 speed hand bike
    with a detachable fork. Check internet Bike On site. Just type in hand cycle and you will get many sites. Good luck and thank you for helping your brother!
