The Gross Motor Function Classification System or GMFCS is a 5 level clinical classification system that describes the gross motor function of people with cerebral palsy on the basis of self-initiated movement abilities.

FATWHEELS are suitable for individuals that present in Level 1 of the GMFCS.

These clients can:

  • walk indoors and outdoors and climb stairs without using hands for support
  • perform usual activities such as running & jumping
  • have decreased speed, balance & coordination


"FATWHEELS are a fantastic product.  I have been using them for about 3 years and they have really been great for my patients that have trunk control but still struggle with their balance while riding a bike.  In the past, I would have recommended a trike for this patient population, but now with FATWHEELS I can give my patients the stability that they need while they are using the most typical type of bike." - Mark L (MPT) - Salt Lake City, UT


"FATWHEELS are a great option for children who aren't able to balance on a standard bike, but don't need the level of support of an adaptive bicycle.  It gives them a great recreational activity to participate in alongside their peers, which also has cardiovascular & strengthening benefits." Kelley N. (PT) - Nashville, TN


“...It took me about 30 min to get it set up for my CP patient and his family as a Christmas gift. They were really pleased. We have also been using the FATWHEELS at our pediatric physical therapy clinic and I would recommend them to anyone!- Tanessa S. Seabrook, TX


"Our patient is now able to ride his bike with his neighborhood friends, who all think his wheels are pretty cool! Excellent service - thank you very much!"
