Boston has cerebral palsy, legal blindness, and managed seizure disorder. He is basically an infant in a toddler’s body, so he needs support to hold his body in the car. He cannot use his legs to manipulate things well.
Based on that need, we created a seat harness and cushion in order to keep him in the car and comfortable. We also rewired the accelerator to a button on the steering wheel and painted the button a bright color he can see. We also implemented an electric steering system using a remote controlled linear actuator attached to the steering system under the car. Boston and his 2 sisters haven’t been able to play together like most kids, and with his sisters steering him with the remote controls, and Boston driving the car forward, they will finally get that chance.
