Wheelchair Baby Carrier – coming soon
A redesign for our Wheelchair Baby Carrier
We are carrying out a redesign of our existing Wheelchair Baby Carrier to provide wheelchair users with the independence to get out and about and explore with their baby or toddler.
We first provided a Wheelchair Baby Carrier back in 2006, enabling parents who are wheelchair users to get out and about with their child.
10 years on, we have learned a bit about how parents like to use the product, what works and what doesn’t. We have looked to re-invent the Wheelchair Baby Carrier to allow forward/rear facing mounting, carrier angle and height adjustability and better manoeuvrability.
Our Design Process
Our team of designers, engineers and occupational therapists have created the new Wheelchair Baby Carrier in collaboration with wheelchair users. This has allowed us to respond to the real needs and aspirations associated with this product.
Potential for a UK loan scheme
The first prototype of the new design was handed over to a parent in February 2017.
We are now looking for funding and wheelchair users to help us further trial the new Wheelchair Baby Carrier.
