---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create a customized mobility cart for children with mobility disabilities such as spina bifida and hydrocephalus. This child is paralyzed from the waist down, and the only way she could move independently was to drag herself on her stomach across the ground. The Chailley Cart is designed as a mobility device for young children who cannot walk but have good upper body strength. The cart is made primarily of plywood. It has a winged back support and an extended, upholstered base with a lap belt. The child propels the cart by pushing it directly on the side wheels; It also has front and rear castors to prevent overturning and to facilitate steering. The cart can be used by children who are too young for a wheelchair, allowing them to develop skills in steering and to build muscle strength. TITLE: Gaining movement. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
