“The drive for exploration through movement and mobility is a deep part of being fully human.“ – Cole Galloway
University of Central Florida’s Go Baby Go! Program is a national, community-based research, design and outreach program that provides accessible and innovative solutions to help children with mobility limitations.
Go Baby Go! host play-dates with children and families where they provide modified ride-on cars and accessible mobility technologies to drastically help impact their lives by getting the child to Move!
Physical mobility with the cars positively affects a child’s social, physical and cognitive development. The Go Baby Go!’s innovative harness system provides body weight support to a child giving them the opportunity to freely engage and interact with their families and environment in an upright position they wouldn’t normally be able to do. It helps children learn to stand on their own and take steps toward independence. The harness system makes mobility possible.
