Movement simulator platform
"The project proposal is called a \"Movement Simulation Platform\" which is intended to provide amazing sensory experiences for our students who would not be easily accessible to them otherwise. The idea is to have the students pushed onto a large platform in their wheelchairs in front of a large screen (screen not part of project request). On the screen will play some fantastic scenes such as hiking up a mountain, visiting different countries, driving a car, riding a roller coaster, etc. The platform will also allow for very minor movements in all directions through the assistance of the adult holding the wheelchair (also standing on the platform). We are imagining a very small displacement of movement in all directions (similar to a rocker board). The platform would need to be a good size with borders and possibly a way to secure the wheelchair to the platform."
Happy to hear your ideas!
