For over a year ago, my friend’s father was involved in a motorcycle accident. This is because a truck suddenly cut him off making him swerving around. And for him to avoid the crash, he ended up hitting to a telephone pole. But he was not saved from the injury though. Multiple surgeries are needed to be done and there were months of rehabilitation that left him with limited use of his right leg. But because he was really a true biker at hear, he still wants to ride the motorcycle. When I saw another product for bikes, I immediately send the link to my friend to her to show her dad.
I saw a Leg Up system that was originally designed for the exact purpose. The riders who have limited and decreased use of their legs, regardless of the reason, can still ride the bike perfectly. Without having to worry about their legs or even just the idea of putting their legs down in time.
This product uses an on-board or installed computer to automatically lower and retract a set of small concealed, hidden wheels. Regardless of the user’s position, the wheels became barley detectable and they just blended into the rest of the bike’s lines. With this, the marring of the design was eliminated. The on-board computer can be housed inside an electronics enclosure!
Once the rider starts to decelerate his bike to come for a stop, the rider can use and press the button that can lower the wheels. While at a stop, the bike can only be tilted in a certain degree because there will be only small amount of adjustment along the way. This enables the rider to efficiently use the product without having to fall over form the bike. Even if the rider cannot put his legs down to the ground just in time to stop the motorcycle.
This automatic system can also contribute in keeping the bike level in just slow turns. As an additional safety feature, the system could only allow the wheels to be lowered compared when the bike is slowly traveling at 10 mph. With this in mind, the onboard computer even senses speed and wheel position upon the onset of acceleration. Even if the operator does not retract the wheels, LegUp will be automatically raise them.
With this in mind, reading the customers’ feedback regarding the product is wonderful to read. Learning that all the different fields where the electronics enclosures should have been used.
