Travel Systems

This all-in-one type of stroller typically includes an infant car seat, a car seat base for the vehicle, and converts to fit the infant and toddler in the stroller. This model tends to cost more than standard strollers and are heavier and cumbersome to push due to the versatility of the features. Many tend to like the convenience and convertibility of this system so they do not have to purchase new products as the child ages.

Note: In our research we found that it may be difficult for some individuals with a disability to use strollers easily. Features that require fine motor strength/control (i.e., buckles, levers, handles, push buttons) and tasks that use trunk control/balance (i.e., pushing stroller, moving baby in/out) are not conducive to traditional stroller design. There is a need for more strollers in the mass market to be user friendly for a variety of people.

Consumer reports lists a variety of considerations for purchasing a stroller; however, we suggest that you consider your own needs and abilities to determine what’s best for you. Hopefully some of theses suggestions are examples from which you can build upon. Contact us if you have found another example that works well for you.
