Stable Finn


We had the pleasure to talk to Finn, a recent recipient of a Unique Solution made by Volunteer Jim.

Solve-TAD worked with Finn to make custom stabilising wheels to make his electric trike safer and prevent tipping.


Why did you originally reach out to Solve-TAD?
“After a lifetime of assuming I would never be able to ride because of my cerebral palsy, I learnt to ride an electric trike for the first time time at age 46. Trikes are prone to tipping, so I approached Solve-TAD to make my bike safer and more stable, after a series of tips, including a quite serious accident. I worked with an OT who gave me advice about my seat position and the crank size I was using, and Solve-TAD installed stabilising wheels custom designed by a Solve-TAD volunteer”.

How has your piece of Assistive Technology made a difference to your life?
“Since Solve-TAD installed the modification it had improved my experience of riding in every way. I now ride safely and confidently and am no longer worried I might tip when turning or going from a flat surface to a ramp. It has been over a year since the mod was installed and I have not had a single accident since. I am also a more confident and effective rider. The freedom, empowerment and enjoyment that riding has given me has enriched and improved my life in so many ways. I am incredibly grateful for the time and attention Solve-TAD gave me to recommend a solution that was effective, affordable, and that is easy for me to maintain. Thank you!”
