Students built an adaptive bike for a family friend that has Cerebral Palsy and has mobility issues. The students wanted him to be able to ride around by himself so he has some sort of self reliance.
The goal was to modify the bike seat so there is a solid back rest for Kyle. We also want parent steering in the back and easier pedaling.
"This project really means a lot to us because a cousin of mine has Cerebral Palsy also and once he got his bike you could tell he really enjoyed it. Kyle tested out a bike, right when he got on you could tell he was super excited. This project is different in so many ways including being able to help someone we know personally and know how it will affect them when they get this. Its really exciting being able to see this project come together and starting to see the final product."
Students and administrators at Butler Tech can submit their projects to us for inclusion on the website. Please only submit projects with appropriate content and that are clearly documented with instructions and outlines, including photos and other references to help readers.
