The goal of this project is to successfully adapt the Fisher Price Wild Thing into an affordable powered mobility platform for children with disabilities. This project was initially proposed to Union College faculty by The Langan School Center for Disability Services in Albany. The Langan School provides children with disabilities aged 5 to 21 a unique educational experience that is tailored to their individual needs. Currently powered wheelchairs cost upwards of $10,000 and are highly customized to an individual’s needs. This high cost can be hard to justify for a child who will ultimately out grow the device, and in order to qualify for funding the user must demonstrate their ability to operate a powered wheelchair effectively. The hope of the Langan School is this project will serve as an affordable powered mobility option and more importantly as an educational tool to aid in students learning of powered wheel chair operation. Powered mobility ultimately provides students with an independence that they would not otherwise be able to achieve. For this project I have designed the mechanical modifications to the Wild Thing and electrical engineering senior Lam Nao has designed the electrical components and modifications. We worked together closely to ensure the smooth integration of electrical and mechanical components. For this project the Fisher Price Wild Thing was chosen as it provides an excellent starting platform to work from. The Wild Thing is widely available through major retailers and with a price of $239 it helps in keeping the project on track as an affordable solution. The Wild Thing is also low to the ground and has a wide track meaning it will remain stable even with added modifications. In addition, it is driven by two independent drive motors so from a control perspective it should be easily modified without replacing or adding major hardware components. The Langnan School is looking for a final product adaptable for many students and the Wild Thing provides a basis for a design which accommodates that flexibility. With successful completion of this project we hope that this design can be easily reproduced and help many children have affordable access to powered mobility.
