CUSTOM ADAPTATION
PURPOSE: To provide a custom adaptation of a Wiggles Big Red Car for a child with cerebral palsy. The car’s existing seat was unsuitable for the child as he needed to be able to recline backwards. However, the child had an existing free-form seat which fitted snugly into the same space. This was used with cushions made by a volunteer. A wired hand-operated jellybean switch control was created to work with the existing electrical controls. This switch was mounted on the steering wheel where it was easily accessible for the child to operate. The jellybean switch was color-matched to the car’s existing controls per the patron’s request.
