The “Treadle Peddle”. Foreman worked with the owner of this concept patent to enhance the performance and market viability of the product. This tricycle was conceived as a practical solution for handicapped and special needs children whose physical capabilities make peddling a traditional style bicycle too challenging. The Treadle Peddle offered a large platform area for more stable foot placement, rather than the smaller and far less stable area found on a traditional bike pedal. It utilized an elliptical motion to produce forward movement of the tricycle, rather than the rotary path of motion found on typical bikes, making the Treadle Peddle far easier for motion-limited youngsters to operate.
