Having a disability from a young age can be truly devastating for a person’s life. Some, like these guys here, take a humorous approach and for others, it forces them to be strong in the face of adversity.
This story is about Sharina Jones, who suffered a gunshot wound that left her legs paralyzed at the age of five. Although it was a traumatic event, this didn’t stop her from adapting to her new life, and thirty years later, she decided to have a baby. Before the birth, she started worrying if she could take proper care of the little one.
Then, a high school, Aiden Kain, told Jones he wanted to present to her his invention, the wheelchair stroller.
Kain had already worked for six years on the endurance, outlook and practicality of this great invention. Now, he finally had a prototype.
“It was great to meet her and talk to her about what she wants and doesn’t want,” Kain explained to The Michigan Catholic. “Talking to her was a big help, figuring out the workability of the device, where to put a diaper bag, whether or not she could unhook the stroller and how she can move around in the chair.” In a separate interview with Today, he added, “It was extremely exciting and rewarding to see Sharina using it.”
Here is a video demonstration of the stroller itself below:
