Tomcat invented carer controlled rear steering and braking for tricycles.  Tomcat's innovation enabled those with visual, physical, learning or behaviour difficulties, to cycle anywhere and everywhere in total safely, and changed the world of Special Needs Cycling forever.  

Coming Soon

Tomcat's fixed Safeguard Bed was invented in 1999 and ensures all children with night safety issues stay safe during the wee small hours. They can be specially designed and bespoke built for specific sleeping problems.

Tomcat's innovative work chairs are designed to enable independent sitting at a school desk or office workstation, by simplifying on and off transfers, and removing all manual handling by support staff. 

Each new Tomcat innovation brings the thrill of independence and joy of movement to an ever widening group of disabled users, but Tomcat's policy of custom building every tricycle then guaranteeing its success, has won the hearts of therapists, parents and funders alike, and made The Tomcat the UK’s best loved therapy aid, and the tricycle by which all others are judged.*
