Abstract (Summary)
Occupational therapists often work to integrate children with disabilities into normal classroom activities. Gym activities that involve ball-throwing games pose a difficult challenge for children with mobility impairments. A mobile, switch-activated ball thrower has been designed and prototyped to facilitate the inclusion of children with mobility impairments into ball throwing activities. The device is adaptable to a variety of games, easy to use, and economical to reproduce.
