Adaptive Equipment









RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Therapeutic Adventures, Inc. works to design and develop cost effective adaptive equipment to help provide greater access to the outdoors for persons with physical disabilities. In addition to innovative new designs, whenever possible we work to adapt and incorporate existing products so as to reduce the overall cost of production prototypes. This enables us to field test new equipment without exhaustive overhead expenses.
