Research Behind Early Mobility Devices and Ride-on Cars
Adapted commercially available cars can help children with developmental disabilities gain early mobility at an affordable price. It can be hard to access expensive wheelchairs that children will quickly grow out of. Here is some research we have gathered over the years and will be updating. Feel free to contact us if you have additional material we can add.
We aren't the first ones to adapt ride-on cars. It was started by awesome researchers and engineers participating in Go Baby Go. Here is the site:
