This past week they finished their final design which attaches right to the wheelchair footrest and uses an infant car seat for the child. We tested it up to 55 lbs (the car seat maxes out at 35) on flat ground. This device will be good for indoor use at home, stores, malls, etc and smooth outdoor surfaces like paved paths or sidewalks.
Thank you Maker Pipe for making this assistive device possible. We are working on a video showing how to make the whole thing for under $100 with fairly basic tools.
