Options for Limited Hand Function

Riding a recreation handcycle is possible if you have limited hand function. All you need is a hand pedal that secures your hand allowing for a pedal stroke with full rotation like the QuadGrips handpedal shown and an adapter to operate the shifter. The hancycles which have seven internal gears with a reversing coaster brake (Invacare® Top End® Excelerator™ Handcycle, Invacare® Top End® Li'l Excelerator™ Handcycle and Invacare® Top End® XLT Handcycle) are the safest to operate because to stop is a simple backpedal motion.
