Todder-Sized Robotic Chairs Help Kids With Disabilities Get Around

When a one-year-old has difficulty with movement, it impairs brain development, since researchers say babies form neural connections through exploration of their environment. How do you get around this? With a bad-ass robotic chair.

Physical therapists and mechanical engineers joined forces to create robots that allow babies with disabilities to move around. The robots controlled by a joystick that's simple enough for a one year old to use.

The chair is unlike a regular adult motorised chair, since it has sensors and a remote control feature that's usable by parents to help kids ride around. All in all, pretty awesome. [Vodpod via ABClocal]
