Mission Statement

AMBUCS are dedicated to creating opportunities for independence for people with disabilities by (1) Performing community service. (2) Providing AmTrykes which are designed for kids with disabilities. Amtrykes have rotating handle bars are attached to the same chain drive as the foot pedals. This unique drive mechanism provides passive exercise to the weaker limbs. A child can use hands or feet, whichever are strongest, to propel it. Velco straps secure the feet to the pedals while torso hip safety belts maintain the rider in the seat. A wide wheel base and narrow turning radius provides stability. Two sizes are available with adjustments that can be made to accomodate the height, weight and reach of each child. (3) Providing scholarships for therapists
