Engineering students from Imperial College have teamed up with the paralympic silver medalist Jon-Allan Butterworth to try and increase his chances of winning at gold medal in Rio.
The second year students hope the finished product will be ready for the paracycling world championships in 2014.
Luke Hanrahan went to meet them.
Last summer saw thousands of of volunteers play their part in the Olympic and Paralympic Games, helping tourists and sports fans across the capital.
Now, to build on the legacy created by last year's Games Makers, legacy charity for volunteering 'Join In' is holding thousands of events over the summer to encourage people to do voluntary work in their local communities.
"Sports clubs and community groups are crying out for help," said Alice Hunt, the charity's chief executive".
"At Join In we're match-making people willing to give up their time to the organisations who need them most,"
Olympic gold medal-winning cyclist Joanna Rowsell from Cheam began her journey last year at the Games. Ms Rowsell has spoken to ITV London reporter Luke Hanrahan on how life is for her after 12 months.
Paralympic basketball player Ade Adepitan, who will be part of the commentary team at this weekend's Anniversary Games, told ITV London that he did not believe attitudes towards Paralympic athletes were "temporary".
Olympic gold medallist Joanna Rowsell will take part in a 100-mile bike ride from London to Surrey - the furthest the track cyclist has ever ridden.
Rowsell, a world record holder who secured a London 2012 gold in the team pursuit, is cycling in the first Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 in aid of Action Medical Research, the children's charity of which she is an ambassador.
The 24-year-old said: "I think the event is a fantastic way to celebrate one year on from winning gold at the Olympic Games and with a large section of the route being held on my home training roads I hope I will be able to assist the other Action riders with some local knowledge.
"I have never actually cycled 100 miles so it will be a great challenge for me too. I have been working with Action Medical Research for two years now and am honoured to be part of Team Action for what is sure to be a memorable event."
Some of the country's best loved athletes will be back in the Olympic Stadium for the Anniversary Games this weekend.
The four-time gold winning Paralympian David Weir will take part in the Anniversary Mile on Sunday.
Simon Harris reports:
Paralympic gold medallist David Weir told ITV London that he had thought about launching the Weir Archer Academy at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. Weir said that "we needed to do something for the future".
Leyton Orient FC chairman Barry Hearn gave evidence to the Lords Committee on the Olympic legacy today, regarding using the stadium as a home ground. Mr Hearn said that people in the east end have been "waiting for generations" for a "centrepiece" such as the Olympic Stadium.
Disability Rights UK chief executive Liz Sayce has told ITV London has said "more action" is needed to capitalise on the Paralympic legacy.
Ms Sayce said that "every disabled person in the country" should have the opportunity to "fulfil their potential" and not just Paralympic athletes.
All this week we're looking at the legacy of the London Olympics one year on, and asking whether its main aims are being achieved.
One of its commitments was to inspire more people to volunteer.
A recent survey found that almost half of Londoners were inspired by the Games to volunteer for the first time, or more often.
Simon Harris has been to meet one of last year's gamesmakers, to find out if he's still giving up his time to help others.
