CSU is promoting mobility in young children through a unique multidisciplinary project housed in the new Center for Innovation in Medical Professions. Together with families and researchers around the world, CSU faculty and students are developing low-cost, high-impact technologies ranging from battery-powered, ride-on cars for infants to hands-free harness systems for children and adults.
Independent mobility is critical to development from 6 months to 3 years of age - typically developing children move toward their interests, learning from their environment and forming important neurological pathways. However, 6% to 9% of children have impairments that restrict mobility. By reducing the barriers to independence through assistive technologies, CSU clinicians can augment physical capabilities and optimize participation in play or leisure activities for age-appropriate development.
