Pedal Powered Wheelchair
This pedal-powered wheelchair was built by Handicap Mobility, Inc., a custom shop in Carter Lake, Iowa that builds specialty equipment for the disabled. The pedaled wheelchair was built for Terri Sopcich, of Omaha, Nebraska, a 10-year-old who has suffered from severe lateral curvature of the spine or scoliosis since infancy. The special built chair lets her move easily to and from school, steering and pedaling with her hands. Todd Bequette of Handicap Mobility, Inc., who designed the chair, says it's difficult for a young girl to keep up with classmates in a conventional wheelchair. For more information on the pedal chair, or other specialty equipment or conversions, contact: FARM SHOW Followup, Handicap Mobility, Inc., 511 E. Locust, Carter Lake, Iowa 51510 (ph 712 347-6666).
