About the Team
We are a team of engineers, makers, and electronics enthusiasts many with experience from family members and friends with disabilities. We also have experience adapting toys, speech generating devices, and creating low-cost assistive technology solutions for children and adults with disabilities through our work with Easter Seals of Southeastern Pennsylvania.
AbleRacers was created from a need we saw in the community to get access to adapted toy cars and adapted toys. We had held a workshop for Easter Seals teaching occupational and physical therapists how to adapt cars and got more inquiries to adapt cars from teachers and parents. We quickly realized that we wouldn't be able to travel and teach all the families that wanted the cars and sometimes waiting for a workshop from another engineering group could take months.
We created AbleRacers ride-on toy cars to require minimal assembly so that parents can set up on their own without having to wait for a workshop. Our experienced electronics technicians complete all the electrical rework, component installation, and testing that adapting a toy car requires.
