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

FANTASTIC PRODUCT

"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


GREAT OPTION

"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


GREAT PRODUCT

“...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


PATIENT IS VERY HAPPY

"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!"
