  • baby stroller

    hello,

    i am a student in Taiwan, and i am doing a project about wheelchair.
    i am wondering if there is any chance that baby stroller can be designed or needed

    do you think having a baby stroller is more convenience for people have kids or relative's kid when they need to go out or anyother circumstances

    but there is few design and equipment on the market...

    what do you think about that?

    and i am appreciate your sharing and thank you very much.

        Just my input. The stroller you posted above looks like it would have a very limited period of use for a tiny infant. It looks heavy as well. It also looks very expensive! It would be much better to have a stroller that could be used for both an infant and a younger toddler, or at least adjusted more easily for the growing child. Also, this one appears to cause some serious problems with the wheelchair users ability to see the path in front of them to avoid obstacles, other people, etc.

        A number of our members have used and adapted regular "umbrella" type strollers. I would lean toward some adaptation of that inexpensive, lightweight design.

          stroller

          Thanks for your opinion.
          That is really useful for my design.

          And another question,
          If any chances when you need to buy a new chair (under any condition) or when you
          do you prefer baby carriers to be a single unit and can be added to any type of wheelchair or you may choose a wheelchair that with stroller(or basket) designed in it ( stroller can be taken off while you don't need it and the chair can be the everyday chair with no doubt ) ?







          these are pictures i found in google image, do you mean by the way in pictures ?

            Edited quote shows my answers here are my reasons:

            1) Need to use it inside
            2)Needs to be easier to get off and on when you have no finger movement
            3)I have multiple seating environments(manual,power,handcycle) need to moveable between them all
            4)Cost less metal=cheaper babies cost alot
            5)I would be scared an attachment would come off risking my babies when going over a bump

              Personally, when my daughter was small enough to use a stroller, wearing her in a snuggi or other baby-wearing device was the best solution. When she got too big, she would just ride on my lap. Now, I wish we had a jump seat on the front or back of the chair for distances. She pretty much walks alongside me now.

                          The creator of the Cursum (Cindy) has been responding to some comments here:
                          http://www.yankodesign.com/2012/06/2...tive-stroller/

                          It's just a concept created for her degree project at school, and she still has a few years of study left. She has no plans for commercialization (since she has neither the time nor money). She also can't share any info/plans, unfortunately.

                          I'm *very* interested in getting/creating something similar for my wife. She did use a baby sling when our kid was an infant, but it hurt her back. We also tried the baby ergo, same. Also, it puts a lot more weight on her & hurts w/ balance.

                          It'd be really neat if I could find some way to attach a baby car seat to a Tilite ZRA. The ones that attach to the front look a little bulky for indoor use, though I can see them being useful for outdoors. I've been looking at plain inline dual strollers (City Select w/ 2nd seat), and I know she could push one a bit, but it's not convenient. Still looking for ideas.

                            Hello,

                            It's pity for her because that will be a good design if there are business will cooperate with her.

                            But I think maybe you can design one stroller as well. Because you know the good or bad point about attaching a stroller on the wheelchairs, it will be a really useful design!

                            If you have anything come up, please share with me
                            I will share my thought as well
