About the solution

"mollytricycle" username in the instructables website, developed an Adaptive Tricycle for children with physical and cognitive challenges, like his son.
The adaptive tricycle helped his son move his legs as he recovered from a stroke that exacerbated the physical difficulties caused by his genetic disorder.
The father attached a seatbelt, heel cups (foot plates) and a handlebar to an off-the-shelf tricycle, and it all cost just about $25.
