Duo Reha - Companion Cycle

Duo Reha is a side-by-side tricycle that allows two riders to cycle together safely.

DUO REHA is a side-by-side tandem tricycle for older children and adults. It represents regained freedom, wind in your hair, rosy cheeks and vitality. It enables a person with a disability to cycle in a safe manner with a companion.

DUO REHA, as the name suggests, is a bike ideally suited to rehabilitation of the aged and those with walking difficulties. As you ride, the driver and passenger pedal in a linked manner and in the same gear. The driver forces the passenger's pedals to turn, which is important during rehabilitation. This function can be easily deactivated to allow the passenger to rest during the trip.

DUO REHA is renowned for user-friendliness, flexibility and excellent performance:

  • easy to get on and safe to ride
  • comfortable chair seats that can be easily moved backwards or forwards to get the correct cycling position
  • drives both rear wheels via a differential on the rear axle

About us

Company details

Theraplay can trace its origins back to 1970 when the first hand propelled tricycle was produced for a local charity. A chance discussion with a charity board member and a passion for cycling led to the development of a range of cycles designed around the individual needs of riders with special needs. Theraplay was the U.K's first manufacturer of cycles for children with special needs.

In the months and years that have followed, Theraplay has sought to develop and manufacture suitable cycles for people of all cycling abilities, we believe that everyone should get the opportunity to enjoy the thrill of cycling. 

Theraplay cycles are simply easier to pedal, the key design concept is to create a product that is easy to use, looks good and can be changed in size and specification as the needs of the rider change. This clever design allows the cycles to be tailored to each individual rider's requirements without the necessity for costly custom-made items. It also means that cycles can be re-used by other children, parts can be added or subtracted to suit the next rider's requirements thus enabling more children to get going on a cycle.
