CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To enable an individual with a muscular disability resulting in limited strength to carry her infant. Lightweight plywood was used to build a carrying box sized so the base fit on the steps of the individual's home. The box is equipped with small rear wheels on the base, a long U-shaped handle made of copper tubing, and straps to hold the baby in the proper position. With the baby secured in the box at the bottom of the steps, the user steps up one step and rolls the carrier up to the step on which she is standing. The process is repeated for each step. Coming down the stairs, the user tilts the box onto the rear wheels, slides it over the edge of the step, and slides it down to the next step. COLOR: White. TITLE: Baby Carrier. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
