Transporting toddler on wheelchair footrest
This is a wooden box that was built to be easily removable from mother’s footrest. It is used to protect her feet, allow her son to climb up on her lap, and he can sit on it too!
Feeding infant while in a wheelchair
Wheelchair using mother uses a breastfeeding cushion on her lap with an elastic strap that wraps around her and her chair to hold it in place. She has a thin pillow that wraps around child like a hotdog in a bun to support to support the infants head and body during feedings for mother with limited upper body mobility.
Dressing and changing baby from a wheelchair
Mother converted an old ikea desk into a change table. Perfect wheelchair height to wheel under and large enough to store items on so everything was within arms reach. Change mat had supportive sides to hold baby in place but could collapse down for easy access. Change mat could be easily moved around and rotated on table to make dressing and changing easy without disturbing infant’s position. Hands and teeth were used to dress and change diapers with mother’s limited hand function.
