This highly customised and themed solution features a custom exercise bike and solar powered carousel, designed for a young man with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and a love for Plucka Duck.
He was looking for find ways to increase motivation, participate in exercise and activity, and lose weight to improve his overall health.
As a long-time fan of the TV show, Plucka Duck and having collected over 100 Plucka Duck plush toys, he and his carers wanted to find a way to incorporate his collection and love for the TV show to help motivate his physical activities.
This one-of-a-kind solution modified a commercial bike frame into a Penny Farthing style bike to match the aesthetics of the original Plucka cycle, and a cycle mount and a metal frame to function as a stationary exercise bike, linking to the carousel.
Now he is more motivated than ever to exercise and get fit.
