The Dream Bike is a new product created for use in pediatric units and children's rehabilitation centers. The bike is built on a tricycle platform integrated with an intrevenous pole on which a paper mache' character is created. The bright and cheerful character disguises the appearance of the IV pole and enabled the children to play and be mobile while still being connected to the IV drip.
The idea behind this new concept in treating ill children is to give them back the power to be kids, take away their anxiety and fear of needles, treatment and their surroundings. The bike helps to promote a sense of control over the children's situation, which in turn, allows the child to have a more positive attitude.
Parents and family members are able to enjoy time with their children instead of having to push an IV pole. The bike are made of recycled and hospital safe materials and are created in a wide variety of characters.
