P17025: Portable Toddler Treadmill

Home

Project Summary Project Information

The purpose of this project is to create a portable treadmill for children with disabilities that the customer can leave in her client’s homes for daily training with the parent. Research shows that body weight supported treadmill training helps children, specifically with Down Syndrome, learn to walk several months earlier than average. The parent supports all the child’s weight at first, then gradually supports less weight until the child can support itself. This project will allow the customer to provide this therapy in an affordable, efficient way.
