The challenge

Modifications to toy carAn eight year old boy, mad on cars, has cerebral palsy and is unable to sit unaided or control his legs. He has limited control of his right arm and some use of his left arm.

The modifications to the car consisted of: hand operated speed and reverse selection; electronic circuit to provide ‘soft start’ and speed control; bespoke seat that is removable to allow transportation; three point harness to secure child; footwell division to separate legs and steering wheel modification.

The child mastered the control system immediately; he is unable to steer as yet but we hope this will encourage use of right arm. Immense client satisfaction.
