Fox News: Indianapolis: A group of students in Indiana University’s Physical Therapy Doctoral Program are putting kids in the driver’s seat of some new technology.
The kids have developmental disorders and can’t get around and play like other kids do. 8-year-old Ashlynn Martin found independence after receiving her Power Wheels-like vehicle that was especially made for her. It’s part of the GoBabyGo@IU student organization.
It’s a joint effort from the physical therapy students who take their ideas to the engineering department to reconfigure the cars. “And that’s when we have this great conversation how we turn our physical goals into practical engineering modifications to these vehicles,” said Andrew Wiseman, physical therapy doctorate student.
