Tricycle riding allows children to exercise their lower extremities in a way that's fun while also therapeutic. According to Lori Potts, PT, writing on the Rifton website, "As the muscles move through cycling motions, they are flexed, extended and stretched. This range of motion is crucial for children with disabilities, because muscles are incapable of keeping up with bone growth unless fully extended."
While an activity with a wide range of motion encourages muscles and bones to grow at the same rate, according to Ms. Potts, "cycling has the added benefit of strengthening gross motor control development."
The many accessory options provided for Rifton tricycles allows the child to operate the tricycle to the extent that his or her ability allows.
"Over time," says Ms. Potts, "improved strength of quadriceps, hip extensors, and the ankle muscles, as well as improved trunk stabilization and balance will show itself."
As just one example of how the accessories can be utilized to help motor skills develop, Ms. Potts cites use of the front guide bar. It enables a parent or caregiver to assist in tricycle operation while making eye contact and providing encouragement and motivation. With practice, says Ms. Potts, the child's own spatial awareness will improve, to maneuver the tricycle with increasing independence.
The table below provides dimensions of all three sizes of Rifton Tricycles. Since this product listing is for the MEDIUM size (R130), it's data column is highlighted in yellow.
