This report is part of my Master’s Thesis in Industrial
Design, in Aalborg University. Its purpose is documenting
the process I have gone through to achieve the final
result.
It deals with designing a bike solution for children with
mild to moderate levels of Cerebral Palsy. During research
it was found out that the best choice was not
designing the whole bike, but a series of accesories to
be fit onto regular bikes.
Through the development phase, several tools like
sketching, model making and user testing were used to
reach a final concept for a bike saddle and handlebar.
Both were ergonomically designed to meet the needs
of children with CP.
This concept brings value by offering a more affordable
and accesible solution to having an adapted bike.
