The Scooter Trailer is a wheelchair cart designed to equip a powered scooter to tow a child and/or cargo. The trailer is mounted on a single swiveling castor wheel. The trailer is attached to the scooter by means of a fixed hitch. There is a wire basket on the trailer enclosing a bicycle baby seat which is mounted on a wooden platform. The fixed hitch/wheel castor configuration allows greater maneuverability when reversing. PROTOTYPE DEVELOPMENT: Designed by Jim Rees for mothers who use scooters to get around and cannot fit their child on them. This modification is intended to allow the mother to transport her child on a commercially available scooter trailer.
