    • Cerebral Palsy

    • Spastic Quadriplegia


  • Cerebral Palsy and Spastic Quadriplegia

    • Spastic quadriplegia is a form of cerebral palsy in which all four limbs are affected.

    • The condition is referred to as spastic rather than paralysis because the patient has some movement in all of his limbs.

    • Shane has very limited hip movement and strength, which when combined with severe quadriplegia leaves him confined to a wheel chair.

Product specifications
Product Specifications

Major Components

  • 90cc electric start Gasoline engine

  • Full support seat with armrest control panel

    • Cushioned seat with 5-point harness

  • Fully automated hydraulic braking

  • Fully automated electric steering

  • Fully automated throttle

  • Automatic transmission with reverse

  • 4-wheel independent suspension

Major Modifications

  • Joystick controller

    • Multidirectional for throttle, braking, and steering control

  • Ability to use a conventional driving setup

  • Low resistance steering wheel with electric steering

  • Remote starter with kill switch

  • Onboard kill switch

  • Rugged electronics for off-road use

Mechanical aspect of kart
Mechanical Aspect of Kart

  • 90cc 4-stroke gasoline motor with electric start

  • Steel frame

    • Dimensions (L*W*H): 66”x42”x40”

  • Hydraulic disc brakes

  • 220 pound weight capacity

  • Automatic transmission with reverse

  • Full suspension with 3.3” of travel

  • All terrain tires


  • The steering is controlled with a Dayton Gearmotor

  • The gearmotor increases the torque at the drive shaft to 75 in-lb at 90 RPM

  • Replaces the input to the steering column and controls the rack and pinion

  • Feedback to the microcontroller is provided by a linear potentiometer

Conventional driving mode
Conventional Driving Mode

  • A conventional driving mode will also be available for Shane

    • The brake and gas pedal are both depressed manually

    • The steering wheel will input information to a rotational potentiometer

      • This information will be relayed through a microcontroller which will engage the electric motor and turn the front wheels

Throttle and braking
Throttle and Braking

  • Both the throttle and the braking are controlled by high speed linear actuators

  • When engaged the actuators will depress their assigned pedal by pushing on a cup that is attached to an extension of the pedals

  • Bucket Seat

    • Good lumbar support (padding)

  • Leg Extensions

    • A trough to hold his legs in place

  • Leg Support

    • Extra cushioning

  • 5 point harness

Joystick controls

  • The go kart will have the ability to be controlled by a multidirectional joystick

  • Forward: Throttle

  • Backward: Brake

  • Side to side: Steering
