Special Harness Helps Babies With Down Syndrome Increase MobilityThe Autism Site
This video of a specialized harness, based on harnesses designed for taller toddlers or those with special needs, is giving new hope to parents of kids with Down syndrome. Babies born with Down syndrome have limited movement capability, which keeps them from exploring and discovering things on their own, impairing their development. Looking to change that, a harness designed as a research project of Dr. Cole Galloway secures the baby to a pulley and canopy system. The system allows the baby to move freely and safely, thus enabling them to develop at the same pace as other babies.
