Ruud Schmidt - Waterbike Technology

Waterbike Technology is a Dutch manufacturer developing waterbikes for disable people.

The mission of the firm is  making waterbiking possible for everyone, regardless of their physical condition or handicap.

A special project aimed at designing and building collectively versions of the Open Waterbike for disabled people will start soon, and it will be coordinated by Ruud Schmidt of Waterbike Technology.

We all welcome Ruud aboard and look forward to this special project!

 

Here is an introduction to Waterbike Technology by  Ruud:

 

Waterbike Technology is a Dutch waterbike manufacturer and develops waterbikes for everybody.

Our main goal is to make waterbiking possible for people with a physical handicap.

Main products in development are the SEABIKE® light Hemi, an easy transportable waterbike with air filled floats, driven by hand or feet and the AQUACYCLETTE®, a waterbike specially designed to carry a complete wheelchair. Both products are still in the prototype/ test stadium and are not yet ready for sale.

 

Waterbike Technology is also official dealer of the famous HOBIE-KAYAK®.

Hobie Kayak is the leading manufacturer of sit-on-top kayaks, and fishing kayaks. Featuring the pedal-driven Hobie Mirage Kayaks, plus a full line of Hobie parts and accessories.

 

These innovative kayaks can be completely adapted by Waterbike Technology for disabled people.

Special seating solutions are being build on customers request. 

With the special hand drive adapter, the kayak can be driven by hand, similar to the movement of a cross trainer.

Using a 2-person model like the Mirage Outfitter or the Mirage Oasis or the inflatable I14T, it is possible for a handicapped person to go kayaking together with his or her partner. Using the specially developed hand adapters, this kind of kayak expedition is a really unique experience for everybody.

 

Waterbike Technology likes to participate in the Open Waterbike project to give the whole project an extra dimension; let’s make waterbiking possible for everyone, regardless of their physical condition or handicap.

 

 Let us develop a solid standard for a “universal” open source waterbike concept together.

Waterbike Technology is ready to take on the glove, the slogan in the logo of our company says it all:

 

Waterbike Technology MOVES EVERYBODY!!!
