The RAD Running Frame is a three-wheeled running frame with chest support. It is designed for children and adults with balance or mobility issues to achieve their exercising goals - be it recreation, competition, or rehabilitation.
Sitting on the saddle and leaning forward, a rider can engage her lower body to propel forward and experience the freedom to move.
Individuals find that the RAD can often provide a greater level of movement and independence than gait-trainers, walkers, or even wheelchairs.
Adults recovering from broken bones, stroke, and other conditions can use the device as part of their rehabilitation plans and, of course, people of all abilities and ages can use it on their local foot and cycle paths, on days out with the family and having fun with their friends at the local park.
The RAD Racerunner is available in 4 sizes, with each size colour coded. The horizontal seat tube is telescopic, telescopic, making the saddle and body support positions easy to adjust and optimise for the user. Adjusting the RAD frame between users or to suit different activities is quick and easy, making it perfect for leisure use.
The RAD Running Frame can be used by children from 5 years through to adulthood. It is predominantly suitable for those with Cerebral Palsy, although it is also suitable for those with Muscular Dystrophy, Parkinson's Disease, and other disabilities that affect mobility and balance. The low centre of gravity and frame design offers good stability and poise whilst running or walking. The saddle unit counter-acts lateral sway and also can be used as a seat when resting.
Running Frames roll so freely that even children and adults who have been restricted to power wheelchairs have now found a way of propelling themselves by their own efforts.
When taking your measurements, it’s important to consider the posture and stance of the individual, and how that might change over the course of the day. For example, the leg muscles might stretch after a warm-up and therefore affect seat height. Similarly, if an individual finds it hard to fully extend or flex their knees measurements should be taken in their preferred stance. For some individuals, a larger frame with an offset drop-link gives more space for growth and adjustment. An assessment is always advisable.
