July 15th, 2013 - During her early years, Caroline Long fit comfortably in the child seat installed in traditional grocery carts. But soon she outgrew those seats, putting her mother Drew Ann Long in a bind. Caroline has Rett's Syndrome, a nervous system disorder that has left her unable to walk, talk or use her hands. Drew Ann, who also has two typical children, soon realized that she needed an original solution to her grocery-shopping problem. Neither hiring a babysitter nor pushing Caroline in a wheelchair while maneuvering a grocery cart was practical, so Drew Ann Long gave new meaning to the phrase "necessity is the mother of invention" and designed a custom cart that would allow her to shop with all of her children freely.From Drew Ann's vision Caroline's Cart is a state-of-the-art product that will provide families of special-needs children new freedom of mobility nationwide. A number of retailers have already pre-ordered Caroline's Cart, and the official launch of the product is scheduled for July 18 at the headquarters of the manufacturer, Technibilt. Ltd. in Newton, NC.
