When two wheels will no longer do…

A testament to breaking down age barriers is Comlink Australia client Brian and his love of push bikes. Brian is no longer able to ride his two-wheeler bike so the Comlink Australia Ipswich Care team arranged for a three-wheeler with peddle assist mode.

As a keen home cook, Brian loves to ride his new bike to the shops, pick his produce and enjoy the ride home. The back basket allows him to store his produce at the perfect height for his mobility and the peddle assist mode kicks in when he is feeling tired.

Brian and his family have shared with the local Ipswich team how grateful and pleased they are for how instrumental the Comlink Australia team have been in supporting Brian gain more independence. The new found independence not only allows Brian more opportunity to exercise, be more mobile in the community but return to his love of push-bike riding.

His family have said “he now has a smile as big as the Brisbane Storey Bridge”

Our passionate Care staff are committed to supporting clients to remain living in their own home longer and maintain independence.
