CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide outdoor mobility for a teenager with cerebral palsy. The teenager had outgrown the child’s jogging stroller she had used outdoors for hiking and rugged terrain. The existing three-wheeled jogging stroller was redesigned and rebuilt to accommodate her. To bring the center of gravity more over the wheels, the wheels were moved in relation to the chassis and the frame rebuilt. The original aluminum tubing was reused and extended where necessary. To widen the seat, a gusset was made from the fabric of the stroller’s matching carrying bag and a new back was fashioned from netting. New footrests were made from PVC and attached to the front wheel. Guards on the insides of the footrests protect the user from tangling her feet in the wheel’s spokes. TITLE: Super Jogger.
