Adaptive Cycling

Leo Mitchell

The Need

Individuals with multiple sclerosis often have decreased or unreliable control over the muscles in their legs. While riding a bike, their knees can swing inward and outward as they make a pedaling motion. Strong knee support is required to keep the rider’s legs stable enough to pedal.

The Project

The team developed a joint fixture that stabilizes a bike rider’s knees. The design integrates a pedal base, attachment plate, support joint, anchor plate and physical support, all centered around the pedal base. The device is made out of aluminum and ABS plastic, which were shaped using a bandsaw and milling machine. Compared to previous designs, their approach is more stable and not prone to common mechanical failures. The device is adjustable for users of varying heights and can be securely fastened to any foot pedal.

Current Status

The prototype is complete and was tested.
