A friendly tricycle for the disabled

Of all vehicles, hand-powered tricycles are the worst affected by the rough, uneven roads of our cities. A team from the engineering design department of the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras (IIT-M), is addressing this concern of persons with disabilities, many of whom depend on such tricycles. Most of the people who depend on these tricycles are daily wage workers who have to travel long distances every day. The regular tricycles have no suspension and the riders are prone to spinal injuries.
