Lillian’s mother Natalie contacted TAD when Lillian was just 14 months old to see if they could provide an adjustable table and chair set for Lillian. After this was completed, the group were asked to make a chair on wheels for Lillian.
This is a mobility device for children who don’t walk but do have good upper body strength. The child can sit on the cart and propel themselves forward by pushing on the wheels.
TAD volunteer Geoff Permezel completed the cart and named it ‘The Lilycart’ after Lilian who instantly took to it. Soon she was wheeling herself through her house much to the relief of mum Natalie who could take a break from lifting her between rooms.
Lilian’s Occupational Therapist was also pleased noticing a big improvement in Lilian’s muscle tone.
