Ormesa’s Biko is an adaptive tricycle for people with special needs. Available in 5 sizes and 4 colors, this product enhances the mobility of children and adults thanks to its great rehabilitative potential: its use allows users to experience movement in a safe, comfortable and engaging way by stimulating all areas of motor function, including manual oculus coordination, strength and balance. Furthermore, the use of Biko helps prevent secondary damage caused by chronic immobility conditions, contributing to the improvement of:
Ormesa’s Biko makes rehabilitation activities fun and rewarding, with a significant impact on the psychological users’ well-being. The possibility of moving in the open air, exploring new spaces, and actively participating in social life can significantly improve self-confidence and reduce the risk of isolation. We spent a day with Alessio and his family to closely observe these dynamics and have them tell us how Biko has become an essential ally both for therapeutic activities and recreational play.
Biko by Ormesa is a practical and functional tricycle: equipped with a compact folding frame, it can be easily stored in the trunk of any car and transported anywhere (the foldable frame is available for all sizes except the Mini). But the convenience doesn’t end there: the lowered design of the frame facilitates ascending and descending operations, ensuring excellent accessibility for the user. Furthermore, thanks to the forward position of the central motion unit relative to the saddle, the user can maintain a certain degree of hip flexion, greatly facilitating pedaling.
Biko can be configured in various modes: during the ordering phase, you can choose between the version with free-wheel and the version with fixed pinion. Both configurations, starting from the small size, can be provided with a differential for optimal stability. Moreover, this tricycle can be equipped with a three-speed gearbox with a differential, usable even when at a standstill. It allows braking with reverse pedaling, changing gears while stationary, and has a reverse mode.
With its ergonomic and modular design, Biko stands out for its unparalleled adaptability: thanks to a wide range of optional components designed to meet the specific postural and containment needs of each tricyclist, this product ensures optimal comfort and maneuverability, starting from the handles: the ergonomic and adjustable grips can be differentiated between right and left. To facilitate control by parents and caregivers, especially during the initial training phase, there is the push handle: easy to mount, practical, and comfortable even during prolonged use, it can be quickly and securely detached, simplifying the folding operations of the tricycle. Also available in the version with steering push, this tool allows the caregiver to precisely impose the direction of travel and accelerate or slow down the movement of the tricycle. Especially useful during the starting phase to provide initial momentum, the steering push handle can quickly adapt to the caregiver’s needs, being adjustable in height.
The handlebar is adjustable in height and front-back position to reduce the distance from the user’s torso; the saddle, also available in the split saddle version, is adjustable in height, inclination, and front-back sliding.
