After seeing the post yesterday about the DuoCycle, Dave Thompson sent me this picture of a similar trike that he designed and built for himself and his son. Dave’s son Rob was in a car accident three years ago and suffered a severe head injury that left him in a wheelchair. The trike Dave built allows the two of them to ride together, and that riding has helped Rob make progress toward walking again.
It really is a pretty inspiring story…check out this video of Dave and Rob riding the trike that they built. You can also see pictures of the build process, as well as a few CAD images from the design phase, in Dave’s Picassa album for the project. As I said…this a truly inspiring project…and it is great to hear that it is helping Rob to recover. Nice work, Dave!
