Man invents special leash for pets for wheelchair users

Shared by Patricia Pereira on 2015-07-16 20:04

About the solution

After taking some time off school, Brian returned to UC-Denver, while still continuing therapy. He graduated in 2011 with a degree in psychology, but his life experiences living with spinal cord injury, led him to pursue a different career path.

It all started with the adoption of Molly, a Dachshund mix he brought home. Brian noticed immediately he was having trouble taking Molly and his sister’s Yorkie-Cairn mix, Riley, out on walks. Brian did some research and couldn’t find anything that would make it easier. That’s how the sciLeash, a pet leash made specifically for people using manual wheelchairs, was born. The sciLeash allows a person in wheelchair to have both hands free, while maintaining control of their pet.
