Baby carrier on wheelchairThe mother has a modified wheelchair to allow her disabled son to travel horizontally. He objected to his lively younger brother sitting above him. A baby carrier out of reach of the elder boy was needed.

A frame with a front wheel and carrying a car baby seat was fitted over the caster pivots with two removable luggage straps. The baby seat can be detached from the front of the wheelchair when the elder boy goes to school.

The mother can take both boys out, even on bus trips, and squabbling has diminished.
