STROLLER HANDLE EXTENSION
----CUSTOM ADAPTATION ---- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with short arms and no opposable thumbs to transport a child in a stroller. A commercially-available stroller was adapted by adding a handle extension made of a steel tube covered with softer padded tuving. The extension is mounted to the existing handle with spring-loaded swivel clips, which lock it in place while still allowing it to be turned down when the stroller is loaded into a car. An additional section which goes behind the user's back, can be mounted to the extension as needed, enabling the user to hold the stroller with his/her entire body, particularly on inclines. DIMENSIONS: The extension is made from 20 millimeter tubing and extends the stroller handle 1,100 millimeters above the ground. TITLE: Preparing for Motherhood. JOURNAL: TAD Journal.
