Students Create Technology That Allows Wheelchair-Bound Dad To Stroll His Baby

Check out this amazing story where high school students created special technology that allows a wheelchair-bound father to stroll around his baby boy.

Chelsea is a teacher at a private school in Maryland, and her husband has physical disabilities that prevented him from safely taking their newborn son for a walk. “My husband, Jeremy, had brain surgery just over 3 years ago to remove a brain tumor which left him with some physical challenges, some physical disabilities,” Chelsea says.

When Chelsea and Jeremy welcomed their son, Phoenix, into the world earlier this year, one question that they had was how Jeremy could safely take Phoenix for a walk. That’s when Chelsea reached out to the technology lab at the school she works at to see if they could come up with a solution.

And the students at the technology lab came through, and Chelsea and Jeremy are incredibly grateful. Jacob and Ivanka, two of the students who worked on the invention, shared about what the best part was for them in coming up with this successful design.

“Just seeing the smiles on their faces,” shares Jacob. “And the relief that it worked,” says Ivanka. Both of them hope to study astrophysics when they get to college.

The invention that they created that allows someone in a wheelchair to safely take their baby for a walk is called the We-Stroll. The invention has already won two international design awards.

It is truly a godsend for Jeremy, and he is extremely grateful to have access to this technology.

“I never thought I’d be able to do something like this safely,” says Jeremy excitedly. “I feel wonderful, I feel ecstatic.”

How wonderful that Jeremy can now enjoy the simple pleasure of taking his son for a stroll safely thanks to these talented students!
