Frustrated Mom Invents Shopping Cart That Helps Seniors And Special Needs Kids

I really really appreciate the creative thinkers in this world. Especially, those who strive to better the world in some way. Too many people are out for themselves, whether it’s money or fame.

For people caring for those who are in wheelchairs or scooters, you will know how difficult even the simplest of tasks can be.

For example, shopping, it’s almost impossible to struggle to shop and keep them comfortable at the same time.

Drew Ann Long knew this struggle all too well. She was having a difficult time taking her daughter with special needs out with her on errands.

She decided to take matters into her own hands.

She also has a  2-year-old son, so as you can probably imagine maneuvering everything at the same time was a nightmare.

She was inspired to find something that would help her run her errands with ease. She searched for weeks but she discovered that there was nothing available on the market to help her.

Frustrated but not disheartened she ended up designing something on her own that would help her as well as countless people across the country struggling with the same problem.

She designed her own cart called Carolines Cart named after her daughter with special needs.

This amazing but simple invention is sweeping grocery stores around the world — and changing lives.

She founded Parent Solution Group LLC, then began designing the innovative cart model with the help of Technibilt.

“It provides parents and caregivers a viable option to transport a child through a store while grocery shopping, without having the impossible task of having to maneuver a wheelchair and a traditional grocery cart at the same time,” they write on their website.
