The Ultimate Cart


Many older adults use “granny carts”; recognizing the limitations of these carts, this project set out to create a newer and better cart, The ULTIMATE Cart.

The benefits of these carts are that they are big, durable, inexpensive and easily found in many stores. However, “Granny Carts” are not private, not water-resistant, slightly heavy, difficult to steer, inconvenient to take things from the bottom of, and ugly.  A newer and better cart, The ULTIMATE Cart is highly functional, simple, and thoughtfully designed.  It is easy to maneuver, lightweight, strong, aesthetically pleasing, and easy to access.
