The AmTryke Road Show!

20 09 2012

Here at Advantec we support many different clients over a multitude of different industries. Our clients work in industries ranging from the Legal Industry to the Medical Industry. In order to best serve them, we always try to keep up with the current events that are happening in each individual history, especially when it involves our clients themselves!

One of our clients, AMBUCS, is known for creating tricycles for children with special needs. As a non-profit organization, AMBUCS consists of a diverse group of people who are dedicated to creating mobility and independence for people with disabilities. 

We all remember being young and learning to ride a bicycle, but for some children with certain disabilities, they often do not get the chance to create this important memory. Thanks to the AmTryke Therapeutic Tricycle, individuals who are unable to operate a standard bicycle can learn to ride and enjoy the experience. To date, over 15,000 AmTrykes have been distributed, most being purchased through volunteer donations and many simply donated.  The tricycles are so unique because they can be hand and/or foot operated and accommodate various degrees of physical limitations. 

Another service that AMBUCS is dedicated to is their scholarship program for therapy students in their junior or their senior year. They have awarded scholarships to over 14,000 students pursuing degrees in physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology, and audiology. The total amount in scholarships that they have awarded thus far totals over $7.7 million dollars.

This amazing organization has a recent event coming up that we thought our readers and friends would like to know about. The event is called the AmTryke Road Show, which is a collection of events held throughout the year and across the country that has a goal of creating awareness among therapy professionals of their program. An AmTryke trailer filled with equipment and accessories is brought to organizations such as clinics, rehabs, and children’s hospitals. Each stop on the road show can include an in-service training and/or a bike day event.
