Appropriate Paper-based Technology
In L'Arche Kenya we use Appropriate Paper-based Technology (APT) to convert cartons into disability rehabilitation assistive devices e.g.a carton chair or standing frame.
The products are light to carry, affordable, easy to make, safe to use and maintain which makes them appropriate for children with developmental issues and other conditions like cerebral palsy. Users are able to attain head control, trunk control, use of upper and lower limbs, concentration and interaction with other children in play. Caregivers can easily move them from one place to another.
