Amtryke AM-10 Early Childhood Hand and Foot Tryke 


AM-10 is intended for early intervention. Its fixed drive helps children who might otherwise have problems making a full pedal rotation. Coasting is not possible with a fixed drive; when limb motion stops, the bike does as well. This hand & foot tryke is designed to stimulate reciprocal movement and increase range of motion. Since this is a hand & foot tryke, make sure both the rider’s arm and leg length fit within the range. Assembly required.


  • Leg length: 15-21 in.
  • Arm length: 13-17 in.
  • Height: 26-40 in.
  • Max weight: 55 lbs.
