In a report carried out by well-known and respected Dr Jolanta Burke of The Royal College of Surgeons Ireland, the Impact of these specialised trikes on both physical and mental well-being on the children and their families was measured.
This report, which is the first of its kind ever carried out on the effects that mobility trikes have on children’s mental and physical well-being, also recommends that Variety Ireland’s “Recycle Mobility Programme” should be considered as partial fulfilment of the Irish government’s strategy for enhancing wellbeing.
