History Of Tricycle

A three-wheeled wheelchair  was built in 1655 or 1680 by a disabled German man, Stephan Farffler, who wanted to be able to maintain his mobility. Since he was a watch-maker, he was able to create a vehicle that was powered by hand cranks.

In 1789, two French inventors developed a three wheeled vehicle, powered by pedals; They called it the tricycle .
19th century tricycle used in Iran
In 1818, British inventor Denis Johnson patented his approach to designing tricycles.[clarification needed] In 1876, James Starley developed the Coventry Lever Tricycle, which used two small wheels on the right side and a large drive wheel on the left side; power was supplied by hand levers. In 1877, Starley developed a new vehicle he called the Coventry Rotary, which was "one of the first rotary chain drive tricycles." Starley's inventions started a tricycling craze in Britain; by 1879, there were " twenty types of tricycles and multi-wheel cycles ... produced in Coventry, England, and by 1884, there were over 120 different models produced by 20 manufacturers." The first front steering tricycle was manufactured by The Leicester Safety Tricycle Company of Leicester, England in 1881 which was brought to the market in 1882 costing £18. They also developed a folding tricycle at the same time.


Regular Tricycles   were used by riders who did not feel comfortable on the high wheelers, such as women who wore long, flowing dresses. In the UK, upright tricycles are sometimes referred to as "barrows". Many trike enthusiasts ("trikies") in the UK belong to the Tricycle Association, formed in 1929. They participate in day rides, tours and time trials. Massed start racing of upright tricycles is limited to one or two criteriums such as in Bungay, Suffolk each year.

Right Movement For Disability Person

The disability rights movement is the movement to secure equal opportunities and equal rights for people with disabilities.  A noticeable change in some parts of the world is the installation of elevators, automatic doors, wide doors and corridors, transit lifts, wheelchair  ramps, curb cuts, and the elimination of unnecessary steps where ramps and elevators are not available, allowing people in wheelchairs and with other mobility impairments to use public sidewalks and public transit more easily and more safely.

For people with physical disabilities accessibility and safety are primary issues that this movement works to reform. Access to public areas such as city streets and public buildings and restrooms are some of the more visible changes brought about in recent decades.
The specific goals and demands of the movement are: accessibility and safety in transportation, architecture, and the physical environment; equal opportunities in independent living, employment, education, and housing; and freedom from abuse, neglect, and violations of patients' rights.Effective civil rights legislation is sought in order to secure these opportunities and rights.

How Information Technology Help Disability Person

Advances in information technology and telecommunications have represented a leap forward for accessibility. Access to the technology is restricted to those who can afford it, but it has become more widespread in Western countries in recent years. For those who use it, Wheelchair provides the ability to access information and services by minimizing the barriers of distance and cost as well as the accessibility and usability of the interface. In many countries this has led to initiatives, laws and/or regulations that aim toward providing universal access to the internet and to phone systems at reasonable cost to citizens.

A major advantage of advanced technology is its flexibility. Some technologies can be used at home like power wheelchair, hearing aids, Handicapped Moped  in the workplace, and in school, expanding the ability of the user to participate in various spheres of daily life. Augmentative and alternative communication technology is one such area of IT progress. It includes inventions such as speech-generating devices, Teletypewriter devices, adaptive pointing devices to replace computer mouse devices, and many others. They can be adapted to create accessibility to a range of tasks, and may be suitable for different kinds of disability.


The following impairments are some of the disabilities that affect communications and technology access, as well as many other life activities:
  • communication disorders
  • Hearing Aids  impairments
  • visual impairments
  • mobility impairments
  • a learning disability or impairment in mental functioning.
Each kind of disability requires a different kind of accommodation, and this may require analysis by a medical specialist, an educational specialist or a job analysis when the impairment requires accommodation.

Wheelchair Activity Ideas

Wheelchair Sports: Don’t just assume that because someone is in a Wheelchair they can’t play sports. In fact, many people in Wheelchairs still use sports as an outlet. For example, many wheelchair users love to play basketball, pool, bowling, swim & lift weights.

Video-games: Video games are a great outlet for those in a wheelchair. Especially for those who are unable or unwilling to play sports, video games can give wheelchair users a chance to scratch their competitive itch. Specifically, the Nintendo Wii is excellent!

Camping: Everybody loves the outdoors, and wheelchair users are no exception. Most campsites have wheelchair accessible spots just make sure you call ahead. Possible fun activities include fishing, hiking (if there are accessible trails) and swimming.

Art: Wheelchair users have a unique vantage point of the world, and it can often lead to great photography. Likewise, many people in wheelchairs are forced to adapt their other senses, and many develop unique artistic talents in the areas of painting, drawing and music.

Traveling: If you took a poll of wheelchair users, a majority would likely mention traveling as their favorite activity. Depending on where you are traveling, make sure you plan ahead and do research on possible Travel Wheelchair.

Light Weight Travel Ergonomic Wheelchair

Ergonomic Wheelchair And It's Uses


Manual wheelchairs are those that require human power to move them. Many manual wheelchairs can be folded for storage or placement into a vehicle, although modern wheelchairs are just as likely to be rigid framed.


Manual or self-propelled wheelchairs are propelled by the occupant, usually by turning the large rear wheels, from 20-24 inches (51–61 cm)in average diameter, and resembling bicycle wheels. The user moves the chair by pushing on the handrims, which are made of circular tubing attached to the outside of the large wheels. The handrims have a diameter that is slightly less than that of the rear wheels. Skilled users can control speed and turning and often learn to balance the chair on its rear wheels — do a wheelie. The wheelie is not just for show — a rider who can control the chair in this manner can climb and descend curbs and move over small obstacles.
