JUNEAU — Adventure runs in the Janes family, so when Bob Janes found his father’s age affected his ability to be active outdoors, something had to be done.
So Bob invented the Access Hybrid, a trike with an assistive electric motor, meant to provide all the fun of a bicycle and all the function of a traditional mobility device.
“My father, three years ago, at 89, was given a standard mobility scooter,” Bob said. “He didn’t feel like himself on it. He’d been active all his life.”
