In 1997, Bob met his wife Anne and her son Thomas, who had Angelman’s syndrome, a profound disability, typified by severe learning difficulties, sleep disturbance and poor coordination. Bob and Tom soon became best friends and Bob looked for ways to help Tom sleep through increasing his exercise. At that time, trikes were considered unsuitable for children like Tom on safety and ability grounds, however Bob invented an entirely new kind of trike called a “Tomcat” which overcame the difficulties that were holding children like Tom back.
Over the past twenty years, Tomcat has helped thousands of children who each have a unique story to tell. They have built a reputation for excellence, and a willingness to take on challenges through a readiness to innovate in building special needs trikes, that other companies were unable or unwilling to match. As a result Tomcat enjoys a second to none reputation.
Requires some assembly preferably by a trained cycle mechanic.
