Young children are known for getting into things. That’s how they learn about the world around them. But what happens when a child is severely disabled?
A Barcelona-based organisation called the Nexe Foundation has come up with an innovative solution: an ‘intelligent’ wheelchair that allows children under the age of six to safely go exploring.
Rather than the traditional joystick that controls many self-propelled wheelchairs, Nexe’s prototype lets children move around by pressing a button that acts like a big light switch. Because it’s also possible to rig the chair so it activates by voice command, head movement or sucking on a pacifier, even kids with very limited mobility have the freedom to explore their surroundings, explains a Reuters report.
