UW Health Rehabilitation Hospital Employees Volunteer at Spinal Cord Injury Event
Middleton, Wisconsin - Madison Spinal Cord Injury participated in the Middleton Trail Days at Parisi Park event on June 4, 2016, supplying three hand cycles (shown below).
These 3-wheeled bikes are propelled by their rider solely by the use of their arms, with their legs resting on foot plates. They also supplied an all-terrain power wheelchair (not shown).
Several UW Health Rehabilitation Hospital employees volunteered to assist with set-up for this event and helping the event-goers transfer from their wheelchairs into the hand cycles when needed. It was a gorgeous day out and participants enjoyed the opportunity to trial these devices.
Hand cycles and all-terrain power wheelchairs are available for public use. Please contact Madison Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) for more information.
Thank you to all who helped and volunteered for this event!
