---- CUSTOMIZED ADAPTATION --------- PURPOSE: To create an adapted scooter for a teenage girl with cerebral palsy and hemiplegia on the right side that affects her control and balance. The young adult was eager to get a scooter but was unable to balance on just two wheels. A local skate shop offered wheeled scooters for children but none for teens leaving a modified scooter as the teen’s best option. The back of a regular scooter was cut off, and an axle was connected to the original back wheel to a second spare wheel with fabricated pieces. A foot cup was added to the base of the scooter so that the teen’s foot would not slide back into the wheels. A test run indicated that the scooter would need a brake over the back right-side wheel to help the girl to control her speed. TITLE: Scooter Time. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
