Our Physical Therapist at CCS modified a Kettler Kettrike Oceana for our dwarf child. We’ve received multiple requests for details on how this modification was performed, so below are some pictures to assist with doing the same for your child. Our son has a 9″ inseam and is on the 3rd percentile (height for weight) on the Achondroplasia Growth Chart. So as you can see, even with the smallest of LP children, you can modify this store bought bike without welding or major modifications.
In addition to the tricycle, our therapist also used a set of foot cups and pedal blocks. These attach onto the existing Kettler pedals and have velcro straps to help keep your child’s feet in place. They are removable when no longer needed. One place to buy these is Amtryke as they make customized Kettler bikes for children with special needs.
