A group of students from a high school in the United States invented a stroller so that their teacher’s husband could take their newborn baby for a walk.
Jeremy King, a 37-year-old man living in Maryland, underwent brain surgery in 2017 due to a growth. The surgery was successful but left him with several complications. Jeremy lost his balance, and his movements became unsynchronized.
When he learned in 2020 that he would become a father, he was very happy, but his happiness was incomplete because he couldn’t walk to take his baby out for a stroll.
Jeremy’s wife, Chelsie, is a teacher at Bullis High School in Potomac. She teaches a class called “Creating for Social Good.”
So the students decided to create a stroller using a chair from the infirmary and a car seat. They kept in touch with the young couple as much as possible to achieve their goal.
The students imagined that a car seat could be attached to a wheelchair. They 3D-printed the parts of the seat and then used the wheelchair to test the durability and safety of their creation.
Finally, they combined the wheelchair with the car seat.
The high school students managed to complete their invention just a few days before the baby was born.
Thanks to their ingenuity, Jeremy will now be able to take his child for a walk.
