Finding a way together.
Since its groundbreaking invention of Carer Control™, Tomcat has designed and innovated disability equipment with the disabled community and professionals, to find a way to solve ever more challenging problems. In doing so, Tomcat has changed the lives of many who thought that cycling was entirely beyond their reach.
In its 20 years of custom building and innovating, Tomcat has brought the benefits of cycling to groups as diverse as hoist users and those with profound learning and physical disabilities, whilst its iconic Tomcat Chair has enabled many physically disabled children to access mainstream education.
Tomcat’s 40 plus innovations include rear steering (Carer Control™), Trailer-Trike™, Quick Releasing Transport Frame™, Swivel Seat, and switchable Dual Axle™. Many of Tomcat innovations have become industry standards, with its pioneering lead followed by other manufacturers worldwide.
In 2013 Tomcat was awarded the highest accolade that can be bestowed upon a British company – The Queen’s Award for Innovation.
