Adapted Tricycle


During Callie's PT session at home yesterday and we were talking about how she keeps her legs stiff in extension.  She is cruising nicely around furniture, but looks a bit like Frankenstein and does not bend well at the knees.  We were trying to think of ways to break up her extension pattern and her therapist asked if I had a tricycle that might fit her.  I remembered we bought a tiny one for Owen when he was little.  I ran down to our storage room and found it.  We put her on it, but of course she could not keep her feet on the pedals.  I joked about taping her feet to them and then thought of a great idea.  I taped her Crocs to the pedals!  We were then able to slip her feet in and out of the Crocs!  She seemed to enjoy being pushed around the house and this is a great exercise to get her to bend her legs as the pedals go around.  Isn't she looking grown up?!
