Most of us have fond memories of childhood bike rides. At Jiraffe we believe everyone deserves the chance to ride, especially someone with physical disabilities.
And thankfully it’s beginning to be recognised that for a person with disabilities, a trike is far more than merely recreational; an adaptive tricycle is often medically necessary for someone who cannot walk independently or who sits for long hours in a wheelchair.
Riding a bike is part of being a child, and this bike for children with special needs aims to provide that exhilarating experience to every child. Rifton have thought through all the features – from the supportive backrest to the low transfer step – that will make this tricycle as accommodating as possible.

We’re always keen to hear from parents, carers, children, young people and therapists who want to share their story with us! If you, or someone you know has benefitted in a positive way from using equipment from the Jiraffe range, why not get in touch and share your story. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, a hygiene system that solves the toileting challenge!
Time and again, research has shown the necessity of good toileting for children’s health. So Rifton have designed the Rifton HTS with that in mind. Hygienic, simple, affordable, and adaptable to most toilets, the Rifton HTS promotes the forward positioning that is ideal and natural for effective toileting. Meanwhile, its versatility and simplicity – usable on, over and off the toilet, no tools required – is designed to improve the health of every child and the life of every carer.
