Josh's inspiring and life-changing story
"Stricker-Handbikes have changed the game for me.
I used a grant to purchase an attachable arm cycle made for quadriplegics that has a push assist motor. It has been perfect for exercising and strengthening my arms considering I was so weak when I first started in the manual wheelchair.￼
I went through Bike-On.com and used John Squires. John owns and uses the same exact machine as I do and he put about 20 miles on it every morning! He is an animal on this thing and it was very inspiring to get me cranking.￼ If you are ever interested in adaptive cycling I definitely recommend reaching out to him. He tells it how it is and is extremely experienced with everything he sells! Plus he’s a super genuine guy so there’s really no excuse here!￼
Once I had settled and figured out this arm bike, I started looking into their power assist attachments for the manual wheelchair. I recently got it set up, although it needs some fine-tuning for my posture, the power assist has helped me and will continue helping me immensely! ￼
It just hooks right up to the frame of the wheelchair, lifts the front wheels off the ground and essentially makes my manual wheelchair either a tricycle that I crank like a pedal bike or a powerful and convenient power tricycle!￼
You really can’t put a price tag on the confidence & freedom that these machines give me. I no longer have to worry about having someone with me in case I get too tired or get stuck somewhere in my manual chair. I’m no longer playing wheelchair roulette when I need to go somewhere! ￼
Like I said, these are a game changer! Thank you John for getting me rolling around town again!
