Frame Running is gradually emerging as an adaptive sporting option in the United States. RAD-Innovations.com in Vermont recently began selling and distributing Frame Running devices throughout the USA, which is excellent news for the growth of Frame Running in our country. We recommend contacting them for assistance with selecting the best type and size of RaceRunner to suit your or your loved one’s needs. They will be able to advise you on the best RaceRunner for your size and ability level.
Frame Running is still primarily a European sport and we have found the Danish company by-conniehansen.comto be particularly helpful and supportive of Americans interested in purchasing a RaceRunner for shipment to the USA. Company owner Connie Hansen is an accomplished Danish Paralympian wheelchair racer and is also the co-inventor of the sport of Frame Running. Connie has generously supported the growth of Frame Running efforts in the USA through the donation of two Frame Running bikes: one to The Veterans Administration Hospital rehabilitation facility in Lake City, Florida and one to Gainesville Frame Running Club. Connie Hansen and her team are an additional resource for assistance with selection and ordering of a Frame Running device.
Frame Running is a transformative sport, but it can be costly to participate, due to the high equipment costs. Most Frame Running devices cost between $2,500 – $4,000 to purchase and then maintenance costs can vary depending on your usage. We recommend partnering with a local bike shop to assist with assembly and maintenance of your RaceRunner.
If you are interested in purchasing a Frame Running device, but are unable to afford the cost on your own, please fill out the Application for Assistance on our website. You may be eligible for financial assistance with up to 50% of the cost of your Frame Running device purchase. Our application process can begin once you have determined the type, size and estimated cost of the RaceRunner that you wish to purchase. Once an applicant is approved for financial assistance, the funds will be distributed directly to the point of sale (RAD-Innovations.com or by-conniehansen.com).
