By now, you all know how conceded I am. Not about my appearance but about my resourcefulness and innovation. Screw lemonade… give me a lemon and I’ll make a lemon meringue pie. Sure, I might need to use a truck load of lemons first, but eventually I’ll figure it out.
Okay, enough about me, for now anyhow.
I shot this video of Ryan this morning. I’ve been on a mission to come up with a possible way to simulate walking for him, albeit passively. My first inclination was somehow incorporating a treadmill. For some reason I couldn’t switch my mind away from it. That is, until the Wish List was created and provided Ryan with the resources. I started engineering, in my mind, how I might make this work while making it easy to incorporate. Functional simplicity is always paramount to me. I’m not Rube Goldberg… but I could be.
So, with the ActivCycle, a couple of straps, and ankle cuffs my problem was solved. By securing the ActivCycle to his standing frame (by another strap) it allows me to exercise him through the full range by simply changing the height of the table.
In it’s simplest form.
So, here’s the video of it all put together.
