Project  / Project number: SF2418  /  Status:


The challenge

Remap were asked to modify a pedal exercise machine. The brief was to help the user to retain their feet on the pedals during exercise whilst in a sitting position. This was achieved by securing a pair of the user’s shoes to the pedals as shown.

Pedals in use

To use, with the user in a sitting position place the feet in the shoes and secure with the shoe’s own Velcro fastenings. (Depending on their mobility the user may require assistance with this.)

The shoes can be removed by unscrewing the securing nuts.
