The RAD Running frames are lighter than other running frames making them a great choice for young newcomers to frame running and also for adults looking for a recreational running/strolling frame for fitness and/or rehabilitation.
RAD offer the choice of either hybrid tyres for all-round use, or thinner racing tyres for track use. Sitting on the saddle and leaning forward, a rider can engage the 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.
Child size RADs have an exaggerated camber for additional stability and are a great all-round running frame for newbies both on the trail and the track. Adult RAD's encourage a more upright running style than some of the other running frames available.

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.
Therapy through activity
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 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.
Sizing your frame
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.
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.
