Infant Cerebral Palsy

CP kids is where all this began.  In 1989 my friends, physical therapist Jack Lollar and  special-ed teacher Linda Bidabe, had a question; Could children with cerebral  palsy learn to sit, stand, and maybe even walk?  It turns out the answer is YES!  The LiftWalker has gotten many CP kids up and walking.  But I have observed that  if we could help them earlier, in infancy, much damage could be avoided, and more good done.  To this end I’ve made prototypes of a completely unique infant stander that will become an infant stander/walker in subsequent iterations.  And I have a project called Lunar Playground (Cal Poly engineers just finished  the first prototype).  A variable weightlessness play space.  The object is to allow brain  damaged infants and toddlers to magnify what little ability they have through normal physical play.  This is vital for normal body and brain development. And many more such inventions ? are needed to make the most of the potential of infants with cerebral palsy.

  1. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Look into my blog post – tracfone 2022

  2. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this topic to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for
    me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    Here is my page 2022

  3. Have you ever thought about creating an ebook or guest authoring on other sites?
    I have a blog based upon on the same ideas you discuss and
    would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my
    visitors would enjoy your work. If you’re even remotely
    interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
