Adaptive Strollers for Parents Who Use Wheelchairs
Using and moving a standard stroller while simultaneously propelling your own wheelchair forward may be complicated. For instance, the stroller seat may be too low or too high to easily place your child in it; you may not be able to reach a stroller’s handle to push it; you may not have the strength to push it; or the footplate of your wheelchair may bump against the stroller. To address these and other concerns, assistive technology (AT) developers have started creating adaptive strollers. This guide provides some information on these AT products.
