Go Baby Go! is a national, community-based research, design and outreach program that provides accessible, inexpensive and common sense solutions for kids and adults with limited mobility. The program began in 2012 with founder Cole Galloway at the University of Delaware. Using an approach to combine high tech and low tech - or "go tech" - Cole designs assistive devices that help to restore physical independence for individuals with disabilities.
The UCF Go Baby Go! program began at the University of Central Florida, in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program, in 2015 under the direction of pediatric specialist and DPT faculty member Dr. Jennifer Tucker. The program continues to find innovative solutions for children and adults with limited mobility.
Go Baby Go! Harness Play Dates
UCF Go Baby Go! hosts harness play dates in our IMOVE lab and around the community throughout the year. The system provides body weight support to the child with mobility impairments; giving them the opportunity to freely engage with their peers and environment in an upright position, within the footprint of the system.
UCF Go Baby Go! is currently accepting applications for upcoming Play Dates, so if If you know a child who would benefit from participating in a harness play date, click the Nominate a Child button below.
